I don't mind racing through our goodbyes

I don't really go thrifting any more because I find that most (there are a couple of exceptions) thrift stores in LA are extremely picked over.  I cannot for the life of me remember where I got this dress but I know if came from a goodwill somewhere in greater Los Angeles - I am sure I was probably dropping off a bunch of things for donation and stumbled inside expecting not to find anything.  It had been laying atop pile of "to alter" items that only actually get altered around once or twice a year! But I finally got around to shortening it to a semi-wearable length.  It ended up a bit shorter than I would have liked but I'm still a novice with the sewing machine... these things happen.
outfit details:
dress -thrifted/self altered
necklace - a gift
shoes - wendybird by bass♥rachel antonoff

musical notes: having a rilo kiley day today...capturing moods - rilo kiley

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. I've got several little projects happening at the moment so stay tuned! xdjrd

I think it looks lovely, but if the length bothers you just wear it with thick black tights? :)

Soo cute! I don't think it's too short, especially since you paired it with flats (which are adorable as well). I just found your blog through Calivintage's Tumblr and I love it!

what a cute dress! my 'to-alter' pile turned into an ebay store 5 years ago and is what started my business. as much as i like to fancy myself a crafty seamstress, i'm really not. haha.
