Daily outfit: Gorillas

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! 


  1. all your simple reconstructions are really inspiring me to do similar things! i'm kind of starting to take sewing maybe i'll try that eventually. :)

    i love the slouchy beanie too!!

  2. Oh it'd be great if you would post tutorials...pretty please. I'm bloody terrible at altering clothing! ^_* Love the color of the tights too.

  3. I had no idea you could wrap it around a tree! That is a cool.

    Cool thrifted duds as usual, and I'm so envious of your fishtail making skills. Its such a flattering shape.

  4. I've always wanted to try one! You have to give us deets of it's uses.

  5. Whoa, that tripod is awesome! I'll have to investigate that for myself...

    Can't wait to see your tutorials :)
