Missed you all yesterday as I enjoyed my husband's anniversary gift…a day at the Spa in downtown Toronto. Funny enough after 5 hours of being pampered I was actually exhausted when I finally got home late at night…so no post.
Today I'm making up for that by showing off the other dress I picked up at Ruche. I love the colors of this dress! When I got it though I was a bit disappointed since it was quite long on me. I decided I would simply take it up…over 4 inches. It's has a very full lined skirt. I had never taken one up a skirt like this before. It is a huge undertaking. As I was cutting the bottom off I noticed I wasn't cutting it very straight so I decided to just rip the fabric…since normally it should tear straight. Well I think that I was a bit over enthusiastic since I ripped off too much…more like 6 inches. That is why you will notice I had to go and add on this blue lace detail on the bottom of the dress. Oops!
Thankfully the blue lace I had actually works really well with the dress. Remind me though never to try to take up a full skirt again. WAY too much work! It goes on forever.
Since I've taken these photos I've made a necklace inspired by this dress…
