so my 16th birthday was about a week ago, and this saturday i took my friends to Upstairs on the Square for some afternoon tea in town.
(for those of you who live near boston, here's a shameless plug for the Boston TeaCup)
more importantly, i realized i had nothing to wear the night before. this idea for a dress had been bumping around in my head for a while, and i had a length of blue drape-happy cotton.
hence my tube/xmas bow/party dress. i didn't have time for straps, but i might add stuff in for support to make it a better strapless dress.
the dress took about 4-5 hours (while watching buffy ). i really like how it turned out. i wore brown boots with it so it was more casual, but it could easily be dressed up with some pearls and sparkly flats.
