(Scissor) Happy

Let's get real. Spring is here, summer is coming, I'm almost 6 months at this pregnancy and I ain't getting any smaller any time soon. All these factors had me back on my feet at the thrift store last week going hard like I used to when I still had a period every month. I came across this floral print floor length dress, which is "trending" right now. I mean, I don't get it, floral has never been a trend for me, it's a great print, any year but this is coming from the girl who left her faux Target x-mas tree up in her apartment in college all year long cause it "looked cute." I decided the dress would look better with another trend, an asymmetrical hem. So I made the measurements, made my unborn baby's father sketch an arch and cut it. I couldn't wait to put a proper hem on it. I wore it today. 


So what if I accidentally measured 11 inches from the waist instead of the hem. I wore shorts under the dress for damage control. (Unlike last weekend at the park when my boyfriend had to use my Hello Kitty purse as a shield to cover my big a$$ as I laid under a tree in a dress).



"What kind of hat is this?" I asked him.
"A blossom one," he answered.

From the back it gathered wind. It was thrilling.

  3. Christos, you look amazing! I LOVE your transformation of the vintage dress- the classic floral mixin' it up with the mullet hem! I had my friend Lindsay do something similar with an old floral dress (I only wanted a few inched up, with a lower back hem,) and she did just what you did- a dress to my crotch which I CANNOT wear. But you rock it- you look uber cool kid and gorgeous! I say sell some of your transformed vintage frocks in your vintage shop. xo.-Bella Q the Citizen Rosebud

  5. I love those dresses. Someone dubbed the style a 'mullet skirt' after the 80s male hairdo, ugh, terrible name for a pretty cut of skirt.

  9. You did a great job! And I love how your are DIY-ing together now with your unborn baby's father (LOL). I agree, floral isn't a trend at all, it's always popular!

    And thanks for your comment on my drama!! It's good to get other people's opinions of something which to me still feels like I'm in kindergarten!!

  13. Oooo I loooove what you've done with it hun, the shortness from the front...flowing beautifully out from behind...GORGUZ! Love the idea of altering outfits, just too nervous in case I make a complete hash job of it, of which the chances are VERY high :-/

    Love Aysh xoxo

  14. Cute idea - you've still got the figure for it. I want a sideways on picture - lets see the bump. I like how you balanced out the leg flashing with a demure hat.
