Like a Glove

DSCN4700

Day 2 of reworked dresses!  I found this dress in the midst of a clearance rack at Dillards last year – the pattern was so fun and the ruffles (of course) I adored… but unfortunately it was 2 sizes too big… and the only one of its kind left!  Thank goodness for my fabulous seamstress because she was able to take it in and make it fit like a glove!

While I adore this dress, the look of course isn’t complete with out a beautiful shoe!  These satin peep toe pumps with crystal embellished bows are Steve Madden Luxe.  I don’t get to wear them a lot, but when I do I spend at least a good portion of the night just looking down at them – they’re so cute!!  LOL… God help me with my shoe obsession.  PS. They’re actually pretty comfy too!

There is nothing better than tailored clothes. They make me feel special. Loving the print of the dress. And of course, the shoes are amazing to complete this look.
