What I Wore - New Lease on Life

Hell hello
Boy life has sure been throwing some curve balls lately! Can't seem to catch a break, but I'm sure it will clear up at some point. And soon enough it will be the middle of winter and I'll be complaining I'm bored so I guess I may as well enjoy the crazyness.
On a resent thrifting trip I found this killer burgundy velvet dress, unfortunately it was huge and way to long for me, but I just loved the fabric and color, and it was only a buck so i thought it would be a good candidate to practice some alterations on.  
This is how the dress started out its life, you can't really tell just how big it is in this picture but trust me you could have fit at least 3 of me in it. (please ignore the  mess in the background.)
and now onto the outfit pictures of the redone dress.

 Belt, Thrifted, 50cents
Ear cuff, Claire's, 3$
Necklace, Hot Topic, 4$
Boots, Thrifted, 1$

I have to say I was pretty proud of how this came out. the arms need a bit of work still but I couldn't resist wearing it. These boots are so comfy! I wish they had a brand on them somewhere, the only thing they say is that they were made in Canada. But I guess that's the price of thrifting, not always knowing the brand something is. 
Well I don't have very much to say, I think I might go to the thrift shop today but I don't know yet.
I hope you all have a wonderful day!


I love hearing from you, please don't be a stranger!
