How To Turn A Free Dress Into A Me-Dress

I scored this classic sheath dress at the Vancouver Blogger Meet-Up, episode 7: The Clothing Swap. It’s a crisp linen/cotton blend with great hand; the maker is WE Clothing from the Netherlands – a clue as to the original owner! We all had more-than-fun tearing through the clothing brought by other attendees for sharing. There was a little wine and a lot of “OMG, you need that!

We had a pile of gorgeous clothes to mix and match. Photo courtesy Sylvia.

You already saw my fabulous swapped zebra sweater, courtesy of Suzanne. Today I went straight-on with my new-to-me sheath dress (similar), adding only a fab necklace painted by Melanie, a turquoise stone bracelet (similar), and my newly-thrifted white leather sandals (sim).

I will tweak this dress – adding a wide belt and shortening the hem – maybe by just hacking it off. Linen makes a wonderful fray. For cooler weather, I’ll layer a slim knit sweater underneath. Thank you, wonderful yet anonymous (Greetje?) donor!

I love a classic sheath dress – so timeless.

I’m addicted to all the exposure options on my camera. Don’t I look like an International Woman of Mystery?

Stay fabulous,
