//dress: vintage / heels: target / fascinator: ross//
This outfit is actually from way back in the beginning of September, when I attended my aunt's wedding, and when it was also significantly warmer. My sister and I were in charge of the guestbook for the wedding, which was something neither of us had really done before, but it was fun, and it was a wonderful opportunity to people-watch. I had been itching for the perfect occasion to wear this gorgeous vintage dress I picked up at the thrift store about a month or so before. It had needed a lot of work and was overpriced (according to my thrift store standards), so after dreaming about it for over a week, I finally asked if I could get some sort of a discount because of all the work it needed, and I ended up taking it home for a mere $8. When I got the dress home, I realized two things--one, the dress was made for a very tall, incredibly thin girl, and two, it was going to be quite a bit more work than I had anticipated to actually make it wearable. I was able to pair it with my highest heels to make it so the hem barely grazed the floor, but to make it fit at the top, I had to take it out several inches. But finally, I made it work! For the wedding, I added a fascinator to dress it up a bit, and kept it simple by not adding jewelry.
I hope you all are having a lovely week, and a wonderful start to your October!
