Gravy

Dress, vintage (via swap). Belt, The Limited. Fishnet tights, Simply Vera by Vera Wang. Peeptoes, Charles David. Earrings, Meijer. Clutch, Apt 9.

I got this dress from a swap. I thought it was a great trade! I sent off a backpack and got this dress in return. I have to thank my friend Karen for teaching me the blind hemstitch so I could properly hem the dress after I hacked a few inches off.

I know I wore gray and navy last Monday, but I really like the combination. I call it “gravy.”

That dress is super cute. I have no vision. I would have taken one look at it and passed. But seeing what you've done with it, I would have missed out.

I'm with Jessi, I could've not imagine how nice it could be!
I like the "gravy" combination too, I should wear it more often...
