I'm gonna need more hangers.

dress [loaf] :: shoes [ferragamo]

i used to love this dress more than i do now. it’s too big around my chest and my boob coverage is in serious jeopardy, i think i was lying to myself when i bought it. if i alter it to fit, there would be too many seams and it would ruin the look i fell in love with. i’m afraid it’ll have to go. and closet curating continues. i wonder, though, if i’ll eventually go too far.

also, how long has it been since i’ve shown my face? or smiled? one of my mother’s friends told me not to hold myself to a timeline, which i have been doing. i want fashion school by the time i’m 25, i’ll need money and what not, but there really shouldn’t be a hurry, though, to live life. i have to constantly remind myself that i only get to do it once. i guess i’m just in a hurry to live it already.

vest/dress [DIY neiman marcus] :: belt [express]

it took me 4 hours to undo the seams on the sleeves and restitch the armholes by hand. does anyone else think that’s incredibly slow? i’m annoyed at how rusty i am at this and my work near the shoulder pads isn’t perfect either.

i do like how oversized it is though and the buttons look great off-kilter. i added an extra hole in the back so i could belt it halfway. always wanted something like this, almost margiela and ann sofie back. funny ’cause i was altering this so i could resell it since the shell is a roughish wool, but i just might have to hold onto it for a little longer. its a pretty excellent summer dress.

speaking of reselling, i just listed a bunch of things on ebay if you’re interested. pardon some of my cheeky commentary and deadpan expressions. stay tuned for denim additions.

if you’d like the see the tutorial, i added it here.
