A New Dress For ChristmasDecember 5, 2017 / byRhonda Buss / Categories : Feeds
I love popping into a resale shop just to see what I can find. We were away over the Thanksgiving holiday, in a small little town up in the mountains. As small as the town is, they have a fabulous resale shop, in fact, I call it a department store as you can find just about anything you may need there.
On this recent trip, I went in and found this little dress, and for some reason it spoke to me.
When I purchased the dress, I thought I would take the top off and add a velvet bodice, but then I remembered that I have this piece of black stretch lace.
As I said, I initially thought that I would take the bodice off, but when I laid the dress down and threw the lace over it, I changed my mind. I think I may keep the bodice and cut the halter straps off, making it a bustier. I would like long lace sleeves and a lace overlay. So, I'll see how it turns out. I also plan to add more beads and sparkle to the lace along the hem, make it a little more festive. It'll be fun to see how it all comes together. I'll be working on this later today, so I should be able to share the finished dress on Thursday.
As I stood at the register paying for my little treasures, I couldn't help but think about asking for what you want...
Seek and you will find, ask and it will be given...even a little resale shop dress :)
Have a wonderful day!
