Fall Leaves

I have been impulsively buying vintage dresses all summer, most of them are hideous when I find them – I always see some impossible-to-achieve potential in them – so I’m stuck with a lot of work

This dress here I’ve been working on for mmmmm 5 months. Mostly because I didn’t know what to do with the huge overbearing sleeves and the constricting high neck – I finally decided to chop the sleeves into little caps and cut a slight V into the neck. Oh yeah, the dress was calf-length so I cut that off too – can you imagine it that long? God, it was ugly.

I really loved its bright colors when I saw it at the thrift store and the huge pockets—it looks really pretty all on its own, but today I was melancholic for the Fall so I layered it :)
