Mellow Yellow

I first want to apologize for the lack of posting over the past two weeks!! Dominic and I were busy helping our friends sell jewelry at our local Fringe Festival. It was long hours and hot days but it was a much enjoyed break from the farm!! I managed to get some amazing pieces of jewelry for my very first give away which will be coming up very soon - so watch for it!! 

I haven't been sewing that much this summer as I have been busy with finishing up my MA thesis and renovating our house!! However, I managed to get this number in!! I purchased this dress on a vintage shopping tour with my lovely friend Jordan!! I was in love with the print and the beautiful shiny buttons that ran down the entire dress only the dress reminded me of my old school teacher and it was extremely unflattering!! Since the dress came down to my ankles, I decided to cut it off alot shorter to give it a bit of edge!! Then, to make it look slightly less granny, I remodeled the sleeves to make them look more modern. Finally, I think the addition of the belt pulled the entire look together and I am in love with the final result!!!








Dress: Vintage
Belt: Gap
Boots: Frye
Purse: Asos

Bye For Now,
Karen
