The magic formula
What I Wore to a Housewarming Party: Saturday, January 12, 2013
Dress: $1 Goodwill, refashioned, new
Boots: Famous Footwear
My formula when refashioning a dress? Make it shorter, narrow the sides if necessary, add belt and boots.
The party was in the apartment complex across the street, a 5-minute walk except we went down to the light for safer crossing and that added another 5 minutes. Which was worth it for not being hit by a car. Everybody wins.
When this non-leather belt started to wear through at the point where it bent while being threaded through the buckle, I cut it off at the crease, colored the pale inside with permanent marker, drilled a new hole, and started wearing it at my waist instead of my hips. It’s reversible with a swivel buckle, dark brown on one side and black on the other.
