The first thing isn't thrifted, but it might as well have been. I wore this dress on dates with Mr. Fixit, and I've kept it ever since. You might remember it from my button-replacement hack a couple years ago. The idea to make it over came from a photo of an Old Navy shirt dress that popped up online: it was almost my dress! But without the floral lapels.
Dressing it up with a scarf (thrifted this week) and a belt. (The green stuff sticking out at the shoulders is a top I had on underneath.). That belt might not be my first choice, but I only have a couple--I'll keep looking for a better one.
The funny part is that I was wishing I had a springier dress, and now I do.
