I've been seeing white dresses around the fashion blogosphere and got a serious case of wanting but just couldn't bring myself to spend, oh, $250 on a white dress (for reals, those are the kinds of dresses people are posting about. WHO has $250 to spend on a non-wedding white dress??).
Then I found this one at Goodwill. It was a little too big and the armholes hung low enough that you could see my bra. Two minutes at my sewing machine and the problem was solved and I have myself a floaty white dress for summer. I've actually been wearing it a ton but somehow haven't gotten a picture until now.
It has been a surprisingly versatile find. Today I toned down the sweetness with studded heels and a cropped jacket but for date night a couple weeks ago I played it up with loose waves and a pink cardigan (it may be 120 out but the A/C around here can be killer. I don't go anywhere without a sweater in the summer). Aaron and I both love this dress, which puts it in a small, elite group of Clothing We Agree Upon. It always feels like a small miracle when that happens.
