Once She Dreamed of Romance

I got this dress at the thrift store last week. When I got it it was much longer. My family thought I was crazy for getting it, but I knew it just needed a hem and it would be lovely - at least I hoped so. I'm so glad I got it now!! You can't tell very well, but I gave this dress a wide hem (3" or so) like I did on my homemade dress as well. It's one of my favorite details on dresses - I think it adds so much character!

My younger sister, Maddie (she hates when I call her my "little sister") helped me take these pictures Friday night since my original plan of taking pictures at the beach didn't work out. We had fun and I got some good pictures of her and the dog that I'm going to post on my photography blog later this week.

Outfit Details:

  3. well I find this dress to be just amazing and very very gorgeous! Looks beautiful!!!

  4. It looks really great!! The print is so cute.
    I love wide hems, too - they're so much prettier than narrow ones.

  5. My dear dress Doctor,
    Simply amazing. You have been given the right title, me thinks.
    Don't wear your walking stick out as you go about all your hard work.
    Make sure you get lots of sleep and eat.

    No, that wasn't supposed to make any sense 8-D
    Love the outfit! love you you fixed the dress! You are so amazing and sooo great at mending and fixing dresses!!! Keep it up!!!
    Love always,
