Ruffles & Polka Dots
Today is a gorgeous sunny day in Montreal so I thought I’d take advantage of the weather and play with making the dress short. I created this drapy effect by wearing the button side to the front then undoing the lower buttons 2/3 of the way up. I then took the bottom edges of the dress, lifted them up, crossed them and wrapped them around to my lower back. I then re-buttoned the bottom button at the small of my back. Voila! Instant volume, shorter length!
I layered one of my own designs under the dress (the Trench Blouse), leggings from Zara (5 yrs old), a vintage leather belt and vintage polka dot peplum blazer. Cognac coloured boots tie in the belt, and polka dot nails finish things off! No such thing as too many polka dots.
I was so happy to see so many friends and family donate to Free the Children yesterday, thank you to everyone! U.P has made it really easy to donate, if you have a credit card or Paypal it takes about 2 seconds…do it!
