snip snip + pull + cinch.

not sure if it's stripes or leaves of some sort, but i was attracted to the colors of this dress as well as its big graphic print. i envisioned this to be my "muu muu" for aloha fridays. yet again, it was too long and something about the neckline didn't sit well with me. still, i loved the dress so i made some minor adjustments. i snipped off about five inches, pulled the sleeves down and off my shoulders, and cinched it with a belt. it's also lined giving it some thickness, which hides all the right bumps and bulges. happy aloha friday, all!

  9. The dress is gorgeous, and i love how you adjusted it to fit you like you want it to.

    Most dresses I buy are too long so I always have to cut some off the bottom, or wear a belt and adjust it.

    Gorgeous bracelets too!
