Once upon a time I had a dress. It was a pretty dress with an umbrella pattern and it fit me very well. Suddenly, tragedy struck: while out for my husband’s birthday last year, I spilled chocolate raspberry ice cream on the skirt! I whisked it away to the dry cleaners, but it was no use – a permanent brown spot remains to this day. My husband claims it’s not noticeable, but I notice it.
Luckily, I had a solution: wear it as a blouse!
What I Wore:
Dress/Blouse: Forever 21
Necklace: Shop in England
Belt: Forever 21
And for funsies, I pulled this out of the archive. I found it at a vintage shop in Bath for 75 pounds – a 1950’s original. I STILL REGRET not buying it to this day. Follow your heart when it comes to vintage dresses, and let it guide the way to the register 🙂 I did buy the gloves, though, and still have them!
How have you salvaged an item you thought was ruined?
