liz's laundry

aka polka dot week.  and/or "is this too short to wear to work?" week
  • sweater, new rain coat, ridic feather earrings: target
  • dress: thrifted
  • belt: h&m
my dress kept getting riding up under my coat.  fortunately the garage is less than a block away from the building i work in.  and um.. since the bottom hem of the dress has the dark ombre you couldnt tell that it was rather wet by the time i made it inside. 
an arm party decided to make an appearance

  • shirt dress/tunic, giant ring necklace, skinny pants: h&m
  • tank: forever 21
  • blue shirt: h&m
  • tank: ny&co
  • hard to see houndstooth skirt: saks off 5th [outlet]
  • dress: thrifted
  • bandeau: ae
  • giant pearl pendant: some street market in nz
  • scarf: h&m
  • sweater: j crew via the sister
  • dress: tj maxx
  • skirt [to make dress longer]: thrifted and resewn
  • dress: thrifted and resewn
  • belt and shorts leggings: f21
sooo the hi-low dress experiment i think was a marginal success.  i decided the dress i thrifted back in february needed some help.  unfortunately... i got a little overexcited.  i had pinned up the front to check length .. and then basically guessed where the pins were by holes in the fabric.  then folded the sides together and hacked away.  i pinned this burdastyle tutorial awhile back and managed to follow it remarkably well by memory.  so in conclusion.  the hem looks damn good, though a tad short...
