Last night I bought a dress at a thrift shop. It has an off-white satin lining with a lace overlay. It's super pretty, but the shape is weird. It fits me around the bottom but it must have been made for someone with either giant shoulders or a giant chest; there's all this extra fabric at the top. The collar, too, is kind of boring (it's an uncomplicated, rounded neckline). It looks totally frumptastic on me. I started to doubt it, but then I saw this gorgeous dress (it sold in one day!) on Etsy, from salvagelife.
It's a little shorter than the one I have, but I think I will make a project out of it and try to fix it up. It cost $8, so if I mess it up, it's not too big important. I love lace!
I think I'll spend the rest of my Friday evening browsing the Toast catalogue I got in the mail and popping tiny vanilla cupcakes from Whole Foods into my mouth.
