So I loved Gwen Stephanie's outfits in the sweet escape video and then I found this dress at the thrift. Well that was a good 6 mo ago and now I finally made reconned it from a short sleeve dress to this cute off the shoulder number. Can't decide if I should do anything else to it??? Maybe take it in straight down and make it slim instead of flared??



and another recon:

Very very cute! I looove the stripey dress. I think it looks fine as is, but it could still be sexy slimmed down.

Why doesn't my thrift store have such great things??

I think you should take it in; it would make it more 21st century, even though it's cute as is.

keep the flare! It looks more dance-y, and it will be more flattering on.

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
love Gwen.
she's my style icon.
your dress is evermost awesome.
and.
of course.
depending on your body type.
if you would want it flared. or not.
but im assuming since your going to make it very fitted,
then it wouldn't be a problem,
but im sure it would look very nice.


i say yes.
