last christmas i bought this beautiful dress from ruby rose. i absolutely love it! but, even though it fit perfectly, there were a couple things that were stopping me from wearing it. first, it was too low cut. second, i couldn’t land on a pair of shoes to wear with it. i needed something strappy and nude or pale gold (since there is a tiny bit of metallic strands in the lace. any shoes i tried just didn’t work. third, the beautiful pale robin’s egg blue ribbon around the bust line was so pretty, but the long ribbons hanging down the back evoked a bit of a bride’s maid feel.
1st – i added a piece of fabric across the plunging neckline. i do feel like it took away a lot of the “sexy” from the dress, but i just couldn’t wear it that way.
2nd – i took off the pale blue ribbon, and added a soft brown one, matte side up.
and that solved my 3rd problem – having the brown now allowed me to wear a pair of shoes i already have! it made the dress slightly more casual, which worked for the shoes i had!
some wedges i got from old navy a couple summers ago.
i love it when i can make something work! have you done any revamping lately?
