{For Fashion's Sake} Saturday: Girls vs. Boys

when i found this gem of a jumpsuit on the goodwill earlier this week it had massive shoulder pads and a large white bib or sorts in the chest area, but those little tricksters couldn't fool me. I saw this polka-doted pleasantry for the prize it was. and when i realized it was $1 because of Dollar Day, there was no question about whether this would be mine.
i came home, ripped the shoulder pads out, unhooked the bib, stitched the neckline a little higher, rolled the sleeves, and added a belt.
and voilĂ ! i had myself a precious little number that marcus said,"...still seems a totally 80s."--sometimes boys just can't see the vision.
i guess i'll wear it for girls luncheons instead of date nights.

Do you notice that there are certain outfits you wear when you want to look cute around your girlfriends vs. your husband/boyfriend/guy friends?

the breakdown:
jumpsuit: vintage via goodwill dollar day
necklaces: stella & dot & nordstroms
belt: jcrew (old)
heels: seychelles (old)

Pin It!
