There are a few closet rules I like to live by:
1. you can never have too many little black dresses
2. it's all in the details
3. tailor, tailor, tailor
I few months ago, I took ten pieces to a tailor... dresses, skirts or tops that had been previously warn, and still very much loved, but the fit wasn't quite right. Each piece was slightly too long for my frame, or the length seemed out dated... either way, at least a few inches had to go off of each piece. Whether it was long dresses turned short, dresses turned into tops, midi skirts made mini... two weeks later I had ten new pieces to add to my closet at a fraction of the price!
This dress was one of those pieces and let me tell you, this little number has a new life! I love the details on this Vince dress, the buttons down the back, the stitching, shape, and now the perfect length! Pairing it with a second dress to add the peter pan collar is just my way of adding a little versatility, to a classic little black dress.
Happy Friday, everyone! Enjoy your weekend!
