My friend's mom gave me a dress which she thought looked great on me. I disagreed. The print wasn't so bad; it reminds me of sailor clothes or something. Anyways, the original dress was a turtle-neck without sleeves. the print was just waaaaaay too busy to cover me neck to ankles.... so I chopped the dress at the waits and took in the sides. It's really stretchy material so I didnt even need a zipper.

The last picture gives you a better look of the print....
I wore this to a wedding on the weekend, but I'm still not sure if I love it or not. I think it looks better with the belt/ribbon but my mom, boyfriend and sister disagree...
comments or suggestions appreciated!

I really like the print of the dress, and this is a pretty good recon!  Also, I think you can easily pull it off with or without the ribbon.  It really does look good either way.  (Though I'm probably with everyone else, I like it with the ribbon)  Cute!

very pretty dress! As far as the ribbon goes, I vote without it, but you could have the ribbon hanging from your nose and you'd still be hotness. Wink
