GFS Feature: Christ Chic


This is what I rocked to church today...hence my Christ Chic look:) Remember this dress from the thrift challenge with Juanette from Fashionnette-Work? You know where we thrift for each other every month. Well, the dress was too big so I had it altered...but there's a problem...I didn't listen to the professionals!
(Jessica Simpson Heels)

I took the dress in to alter the bottom part into a "pencil" fit..because everything looks better if it's a pencil fit, right? Well, I had her fit the skirt tight around the kness and she kept saying "no, no, no...too tight."

I blew her off and insisted that I knew what I was talking about.

Well  she was right! It was soooo tight around the knees that I almost needed assistance  getting in the car and going up stairs! Ridiculous! You would think that would be enough to not wear it again...negative. If Victoria Beckham can suffer for fashion, SO SHALL I!

The legend is I've been this way since birth. The story goes that at 3 yrs old, I was told that the stove was hot but I refused to believe it until I kissed the stove...KISSED THE STOVE PEOPLE!! They never had that problem out of me again...

...P.S....remember what happened the last time I didn't listen to the alterations lady...click here

shorten it above to too-tight part and keep on wearing. Great dress!

Glad to know you learned to stop kissing the stove!

Glad you kissed the stove....I still got zebra butt from getting to close to the heater after a bath when I was 5 years old....I'm scarred for life literally.

I love the dress. You and Juanette are working the drawers off your thrifted items. Wish I had a thrifting buddy.

I'm doing a clutch giveaway from Nikki Brown Bags.
