I always feel like I'm passing up awesome vintage pieces in thrift stores only because they're too long. Prime example is this dress I'm wearing for these pictures. Debated back and forth whether to get it because it fit perfectly in the top, but the hem reached down to the floor. I ended up buying it (obviously!) but that was back in...June. So the poor dress has sat in my closet that long being unworn!
Thankfully my sweet roommate is a design major and taught me how to hem this weekend! I feel like a whole new world is open to me. Hemming is seriously so easy and I can't believe I passed up so many perfect pieces in the past simply because I just didn't know how shorten. I did this dress all by myself and couldn't be more proud/happy with how it turned out. Watch out--I'm a lean, mean, hemmin' machine.
In other news, Ohio means business about winter and decided to drop below zero today. Rewarded my frozen body with a thrift trip after and found two new berets for my collection! A raspberry one and a grey one. That makes ten and I'm not quite sure what other colors I can collect! Perhaps a pretty powder blue one? ♥
With much love, Lauren.
