the little old lady that lived in a shoe

Dress: Thrifted. Boots: DIY studded Fryes. Diamond effect cuff/bracelet: Intermix (on sale)
This is a dress that I imagine she would wear for a night on the town.
I love finding thrift or vintage things that are a bit tatty and ruined around the edges and THIS completely fits the bill.
It’s an old Jill Stuart strapless dress with lots of old black lace with a ribbon waist tie. I wore an Urban Outfitters bra with it to make it look like part of the dress, although worn strapless with bare shoulders, it looks just as or even prettier.

    I was thinking the straps looked a little ‘different’ than the dress. But only because I improvise the same way with my dresses. Lovely look.

    Love Grace.

    love how you paired the gorgeous dress with the masculine fryes. Perfection. I can imagine this dress strapless and I think it would be sensational as well.

    Glad I”m not the only one that likes tatty stuff.

    Anon – just conditioners in my hair. I like the Dove Intensive Conditioner in a blue bottle. I use it as a leave in then plait my hair overnight and just undo it in the morning. That’s it!

    I love what you did to those boots. That dress is so awesome, I think the fact it’s looks worn down makes it even better.
