Happy Valentines Day my loves!! Hope you all had a fantastic day! Fell free to tell me about it, I'd love to hear what you did! xo
I'm wearing: Alice and Olivia Dress // Steve Madden Pink Pumps // Heart Sunglasses (one of my finds from my trip in San Fran).
But okay. I have a story about the dress. I bought it for $30 at Last Chance. There is only one Last Chance in America in Scottsdale AZ... and it sure is a treasure. You can find designer clothes, purses, everything for a ridiculous inexpensive price. Granted, it probably isn't "brand new" but you can still clean/fix it up.... That is what I did with this dress. So here's my sweet story for the day. This dress when I bought it was falling apart: there were no straps, the black mesh was draping down, and all of the intricate gold lace detailing was torn and had missing pieces. But I couldn't help but buying it because I knew I had a secret weapon to fix this dress :)... That secret weapon is grandma. She is the best seamstress in America. No joke. When I gave the dress to her she was hesitant on wanting to fix it because it was such a mess...but I know my grandma loves a challenge :). And I was right because about two weeks later, what did I find in the mail? The dress :). She completely fixed it. Redid all of the gold lace detailing, fixed the black tulle skirt and made straps for it. Isn't she just amazing!! She even took off the Alice and Olivia tag and put "Specially Handmade by Grandma." And that is my favorite part. I just love my grandma.
Love you all! Thank you for supporting me with your follows and comments :)
p.s. here is the tag my grandma sewed in my dress :)...isn't it just so precious??
