Altered


Outfit Details: Zara clutch and heels, vintage dress, Ray Ban sunnies

I found this dress at thrift store when I was in grad school at Bloomington, when my budget for clothes was tight. Bloomington, IN is a modern day hippie paradise, where the farmer's market is the place to be on Saturdays, the craft beer flows like water, and thrift stores are filled with eclectic treasures like this. This dress was originally somewhere between a midi and knee-length dress, and I must have been feeling a little 60s Mad Men vibes when I took it to my local seamstress. I had them chop almost a foot off, the tailor and I had to negotiate how "mini" would be too much mini, but I think it came out perfectly.

The bright orange color and light wool knit make it an awesome transitional piece for spring into summer and summer to fall. I can definitely see myself sporting this with tights, boots, and layering a long camel coat over it in a few months. Paired with these awesome Zara heels I bought on sale over the winter (assuming I would be craving a chunky white sandal all summer long) the vibe is a 60s mod, brought to modern day.
