And just in time for ... nothing in particular.
|Who doesn't make fettuccine in a fancy fuchsia frock?|
|Yes that is the old skirt... bo-ring - also GO BUCKS! O - H -|
I knew what had to be done - rip the skirt off and attach a more voluminous one! However, I had nor the time or energy for this before the big day, so I broke my 5 and 3/4 month no-buying-clothes-pledge (not too shabby, eh?) and bought a pretty strapless dress at H&M.
|What??? It had to be done!|
I love the end result! It's now exactly how I originally pictured it! With the exception of the wonky back opening - it looked fine on the hanger, but apparently it doesn't like that my shoulders are not the same height. I will need to adjust the collar / neck thing just a bit for future wearings
Ironically, after donning the "All Dressed Up and Nowhere to Go" Dress" for some pics in the kitchen, my hubs decided to take me to the movies to see Les Mis! He even put on a tie (with his hoodie and jeans). I guess now it should be called "All Dressed Up and Somewhere to Go" dress :)
