Is it really Sept?!?! I mean the summer is gone and it slid on by us! To say I over committed myself this summer would be an understatement! I needed a break and I took it! From just about everything! I was so spent that I didn't even have the energy or the faith I needed when the unexpected car repair or the bad day at work happened. I REALLY didn't like the place I was in emotionally and spiritually, But I'm better now! Feeling refreshed and full of ideas for the upcoming year! I'm excited again, I'm dreaming again, and I've learned.
I'm all about supporting upcoming businesses, and this past weekend I attended "The Experience" hosted by Produce Section Clothing. It's a clothing T-shirt line for men and women where "Being Fresh is Everything". I posted the link above, be sure to check them out! The party was at a local spot on a roof top, which automatically screamed Grown and Sexy! I knew I wanted to be fly AND original so I went thrifting!
I found this Moo-Moo, and the wheels in my head begin turning! It had a cool print /design, the material was stretchy, and I saw potential!
At First I took it in on the sides, but the darts/pleats in the middle of the dress did not want me to be great! LOL I sewed those down some so that it would give the dress a more fitted look. When I finished, I still wasn't satisfied. The dress was saying "Wear me to church" instead of "Roof Top ready". So, a sleeve had to go....
I really need to do better about taking pics/video during the process, but I was on a time constraint! I did this 2 hours before the party! When I removed the sleeve I could Breath!
With the help of my mom, I went with a nude shoe and a red lip! This is the first Thrift Flip of the year! I LOVE it and it was a big hit!
