tiny pocket transformed
dress : altered tiny pocket tank pattern
necklace : cursive design
jacket : h&m
shoes : a.p.c. madras
As promised, here is the tiny pocket tank turned into a shift dress complete with a center front button placket and two large patch pockets. Doesn’t it look so warm and springlike out here? Don’t be fooled, it was 32˚, hence the super tense shoulders. What happened to all the nice weather earlier in the week?! At least it’s sunny out again I suppose. Also I would like to mention my shoe score of the century. Those A.P.C. cutout boots that retailed for $238…I got them for $26.00 including shipping from Urban Outfitters. Woohoo!! This was one time that it paid to have freakishly small feet! I like the little colored tights popping out of the cutouts, it’s like spring a little bit. I’m still going through all of the photos I took of altering the tank into this dress; I should have them finished up and ready to post with instructions by Monday. Cool yo.
