The other night I went and had the most yummy meal at Bastille and then went out for drinks in Ballard. I decided I wanted to dress up for fun so I chose my newly hemmed dress that I found at B.E. Remember how it originally looked? Thanks to my lovely Grandmother, it is now a few inches shorter and much more wearable. I did, however, get a few comments regarding the ribbon on the original hem, asking if I was going to keep it, but I decided that the dress was more versatile with just the two colors— blue and white. (I think I will do something fun with the leftover fabric…maybe I will make a new band for my hat!) What do you think of the yellow belt? I think it helped make the whole dress pop, but may try other options in the future. Also, don’t you love those crisscross straps? And, how great is it when dresses and skirts have pockets? It’s my favorite thing.
All in all, I had a great time out on the town and felt pretty as a princess all night long!
P.S. Check out the original photo here. Side note…the dress is actually a deeper navy, but for some reason in the photo above it looks lighter…blame it on the glorious sunlight I guess! :)
