Which Alters When It Alteration Finds


My lovely sponsor The Attic People sent me this awesome vintage denim dress. I've been wearing loads of red this summer, so I love the little details on this dress. Vintage pieces always seem to have the best details. I was inspired to chop the dress into a mini after watching this video about Elizabeth Spiridakis's (Feels Like White Lightning) style. She doesn't really talk about minis in the video, but she often wears them with colorful tights and crazy shoes. Some people are quite sensitive about customizing vintage, but I'm a firm believer in making changes to your clothes if it means you will wear them more. Although, I might have hemmed it a tad too short for my tastes. I'll probably be adding a few inches back at some point! Still, it's a really fun little dress and we even had cooler weather for a day, so I was able to style it with tights. The whole ensemble reminds me of how I used to dress...in kindergarten.

  8. When I first saw it, I was like, "that's not Rebecca! That skirt is WAY too short!" But I rather like it.

    Another nice change. NICE LEGS, might I add! :)

  13. Heels are rockin! I totally remember sporting a similar pair in middle school (like 15 years ago - god I'm old, haha). I'm hunting for a new pair!

  16. It's like two dresses in one! I also look forward to cooler weather sometimes because I prefer tights to bare legs (looks-wise, anyway...).

  17. That outfit is perfect. If you are going more in this direction (colour/70s/preppy/sorta?) then I'm all for it. So cute! That dress is perfect. I have been looking again at some of my vintage denim pieces and trying to understand how they fit again, and now I get it. And I need those shoes. Bye :)

  19. Aahh, I love the title of this post! My favorite Shakespeare sonnet. ♥

    That dress is so cute! I'm always hesitant about altering vintage pieces...but I think, like you said, that if it means you'll wear it more often in the long run, then you should go for it.

  21. What a delightful dress! A lace trim at the hem might be a cute way to add a few inches?

  24. Such a cute little dress. I definitely don't think it's too short on you - especially with the cool gray tights. I love those shoes you have on too! You've been wearing them a lot lately and they always look great.
