Reworked vintage

Jan 21, 2010

I feel sad when I see vintage dresses on the bargain bin whenever I go thrifting. So I buy some of them and wear them as it is or have it "tweaked" a bit by reworking. This is one of them:

I wore it with a cameo pendant necklace. I have quite a collection of them and I think of them as very romantic pieces of jewelry.

And it looked like this before getting reworked:

That's so fabulous! The cut is perfect. You look so pretty in it. And of course, your cameo necklace perfected it.
