THRIFTY THURSDAY: OOTD: 1/26/2012 Nip Tuck...


MORNING!!! This post BARELY made it! I was going to just skip Thrifty Thursday this week, but I really didn't want too! I'm so proud of my first hem...Crooked and all! LOL But I'm wearing it like it's perfect! The imperfect perfection!!

So I got this dress on my thrifting adventure with Tamika a few weeks ago. I love the print and the style... you know vintage! Ain't no stopping me now that I have my sewing machine!!! The tag says size 28 but now it fits me! This dress has been NIP TUCKED! <---Another new phrase!! lol


So you know she gave me the STANK FACE again! This time I was able to CAPTURE the moment!Then she said "A Moo-Moo?!?!?!" I was cracking up in this picture!! Can you tell?


TA-DAA!!!

Not perfect, but I'm pleased!   

I love the shoulder detail...

The back



I couldn't wait to share this with you guys! How did I do??? =)
continue to have a great week! CHEERS TO THE FREAKIN WEEKEND!!!


Keep Dreamin,

E. Louise

You can't even imagine how HARD I'm hating on you right now... smh I've been trying to find something... anything with this print on there!! I love the alteration! I think it was cute before too, but probably biased because of the print, lol. I'm also digging the short cut. Work!
