This black dress was a pretty typical 90's dress and I chopped the hem off to give it a really subtle fishtail hem. Super comfy slip on dress and now it's more modern.
Any thrift store find can be fixed up in a few minutes! Hopefully after December I'll have more time to post tutorials and before and after pics for a lot of the simple reconstructions I do.
Dress: Salvation army
Tights: Simply Vera
Boots: Old Navy
Also, this thing is ridiculously cool.
It's a Joby Gorilla pod and it can wrap around a tree, or really anything at all, and hold your camera there. I just got it (Thanks, dad) and have only had one nice day outside to play with it, but seems like it will be the perfect thing to travel with. I was skeptical on it's ability to hold up an SLR, but that's what it's made for and it worked great!
