Pearls of Wisdom

Dear Fashion Diary,







This is the second frumpy dress I've owned from the thrift store
and turned into something wearable! 
{The first was a moomoo...}
The best part? No sewing needed :)
Thrifting is all about seeing the potential, not about how it looks on the hanger!
Pearls of wisdom my friends.

How is your Christmas season going?? Don't you love this time of year?!

Wow, great eye! I wouldn't have looked twice at that dress, (maybe once only to poke fun at it) but you made it look essential! You really should own a curated thrift shop.

I love how you turned that dress into something so cute! I love polka dots. I won't shy away from a dress that is too big next time.
