Hello everyone!
I (attempted) a little DIY last night on an ugly 1980's dress I had sitting in my closet. It had long sleeves, shoulder pads, and a hem down to the floor. I cut off the sleeves and tried to do a hem which really didn't look all too bad...Until I tried the dress on a it was a bit longer on one side than the other. I attempted to fix and and just muddled the whole thing up royally so I just decided to wear it as a blouse for now. This is your future fashion merchandiser ladies and gentlemen. Yes, I'm scared too ;)

I can't talk long for now because I've felt just awful all day long and it's killing me to write this post. I'm so dizzy I can hardly stand up. Nothing helps but closing my eyes and laying down. I've gotten this before and we're not sure what's wrong...I need to go to the doctor and figure it out before college starts!

Hope you all are well
With much love, Lauren.

I think you did a good job :) It takes practice sewing I know...I always mess up on the hem too. But it looks perfect as a blouse, trust me :) Very cute.

Feel better!

Oh no, I'm sorry you're feeling bad! But it looks awesome as a blouse, although your picture on Instagram was pretty cute! You look like you're about ready to go on a ladylike hike in the woods:)

Wow, such a cute outfit! I love your hair like that...too cute!

And, I have a little brown backpack similar to that and I love it! It's nice instead of a purse you have to hold onto all the time!

Aw I hope you start feeling better soon. It could be some sort of migraine maybe?

I really love how springy this outfit is. You did a nice job with the top part of that dress! It looks cute as a blouse and I love that you wore scraps from it as a scarf in your hair. That collar is awesome too.
