Thanksgiving Day Dress

Thanksgiving is a day to spend with friends and family and reflect on the things in life you are thankful for. I have many many things that I am thankful for which includes each and everyone of you, my dear readers!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of fun and lots of yummy food!
 Pretty frumpy huh!?

This dress also came with this vintage broach, which was actually part of the reason that I bought this dress.

I removed the undesirables: shoulder pads and long sleeves.

I hemed the bottom by taking off 7 inches.

Then I had to hem the lining by 5 inches.

I put on some festive Jamberry nail wraps for the occasion! 

I added a black belt and black shoes and I was all set to go celebrate with family!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Happy Refashioning!!!

I love it. The brooch adds a nice touch; a modern spin on a vintage classic.
