Spray paint

I thrifted this dress and it was missing the tags, so I threw it in the wash on cold to see what happened... well the white collar and white buttons came out purple from all the black dye that came out in the wash! Hmm, guess that missing tag said 'dry clean only.' So I used a bleach pen to lighten it but realized it was never gonna look right so I sprayed it with Simply Spray! I wanted it to be a kind of uneven, spray painted effect and I think it turned out great!
 Blazer - thrifted, little boys
Dress - thrifted, customized by me
Tights - Target
Shoes - Unlisted by Kenneth Cole, inherited from sister

Collar and shoes:

Yay! I only have to work tomorrow then I have the rest of the week off for Thanksgiving! I'm staying in Minneapolis this year and doing Thanksgiving dinner with a bunch of friends so I'm excited I don't have to deal with traveling. Since I finally have internet at my house (I didn't for the last two months)... I'll finally update the etsy! I'm planning to spend Wednesday photographing things and then listing a bunch on Friday or Saturday! I have so much great stuff that's just been sitting around waiting! Hooray!

P.S. With all this Thanksgiving talk, one thing I'm thankful for? Miu Miu bringing back this shape of shoe. These belonged to my sister in like 1994? Suddenly relevant again.

I used to have shoes like those. i wore them to a high school dance, with an awesome velvet dress.

Great creative collar save! I didn't even know about that pen.
Also, yeay for the reduced work week. I am jealous!

You look really Christmassy. I think it's the white tights and black shoes.
