Happy Goodwill Outlet Center Friday- not only is it Friday, its also my birthday today!
This is my new birthday dress, and its from Goodwill Outlet Center, where I paid less than fifty cents for it! I've been admiring this little black sundress from afar since I started seeing different versions in stores this spring. After seeing this image on American Eagle Outfitter's website, I decided that I must have one of my own. The pattern reminds me of clothes I wore to school in second grade. I'm almost positive that I had a little girl's version of this dress back in the day.
When I found this dress at the Outlet Center, I was even more convinced that I wore something similar in elementary school because it was a size 14 little girl's dress!
After bringing it home, I and gave it a little make over. The puffy cap sleeves were the first to go. I cut the fabric into strips, sewed them into straps, and transformed the dress into something a little more grown up. I'm so happy with the result, It looks so good!
<-----The American Eagle necklace worn by the model features a collection of different leaf charms. I really like eclectic jewelry like this. Its almost like a charm bracelet with pieces from all kinds of different places. For the chain, I clipped a section from an outlet center belt and strung together a variety of little trinkets. Its not exactly leaf themed, but its pretty.
I have big plans for this outfit: a romantic birthday dinner with Patrick. Lucky Me :)
