I love when I dig around in my closet and find something from years ago that has potential...things that can be made current all over again with some minor tweaking. It seems that every year, the hemlines are getting shorter and shorter and once again, minis are big this season. By just shortening the hemlines, I, or my tailor to be exact was able to breathe new life into my old clothes.
This Betsey Johnson floral dress is over 3 years old. I hadn't touched it in years when I caught a glimpse of it in my closet and wondered what it would look like short. I've been wanting a Parker cami dress (pictured below on Rihanna and model) forever but couldn't justify the price for a flimsy summer dress. Snipped a couple (ok fine, more than a couple) inches off the Betsey Johnson and voila!: flimsy, summer dress for $10 or less! Ooh..that rhymes! :)
