Before getting to the outfit I put together today to revive a doomed piece in my closet, I’d like to note the changes in sceneries. I hope you all don’t mind the current visual aesthetic of the blog as it is currently undergoing some changes. I’m in the midst of moving the food portion of this blog to a different blog, which will be revealed promptly. However, the fashion portion will be kept on here until probably a little longer. This is so that people who wish to follow the fashion or food portion of the blog isn’t getting feeds to irrelevant entries. However, this will still be my personal blog for all things; I will link the entries from the food and fashion blogs to the featured contents noted at the top of the homepage. I hope you all don’t mind the changes and bear with me for a while longer.
On to other things, today I attempted to revive by taming a royal blue dress I bought at a local Goodwill a couple of months back thinking I can do something with it. It’s this gorgeous silk royal blue dress, but it was a smidge too big, and subsequently, I realized the pleats were undone. Oh, what a hot mess it was! In an effort to make some use of it, I ‘tamed’ it altogether with this gorgeous green JCrew cashmere sweater that Freda (my younger sister) had graciously gave me. I adore the sweater, but it’s just too short on me, and makes me look frumpy in general. So two not too fitting items hopefully can do some magic?
Sweater: JCrew. S
Boots: Target. 5.5
Belt: JCrew Men. S
I wish I had a pair of black heels with me, and that the streets were actually supportive of foot mobility in heels, but with all the ice and slippage, that would be a total nightmare. For those wondering how that belt is looped, I actually didn’t use the prong because it was too big to fit around my waist. I looped through the buckle and pushed the prong aside so that the belt is beneath the prongs; at this point, I proceed to do a loop for visual pleasantness. I hope that helps some ladies who has belts that are too big and don’t have a belt puncher.
