Ray-Ban #5226 glasses
modified vintage dress
Cole Haan "Pinch Penny" loafers (c/o Cole Haan)
I got this vintage housecoat the day before we went on our road trip, and in my utter lack of patience I decided to bring it with me. That wouldn't be much of an issue, except it required quite a bit of reworking - it was much longer and wider than I wanted. I wanted it to be less of an oversized housecoat and more of a mod mini, but I also wanted to get more than a couple of hours of sleep. So, I did a slipshod alteration job in a matter of ten or fifteen minutes, ripping seams and sewing hems without bothering to pin or measure. Despite the fact that it looks like the hem doesn't line up, it actually (and surprisingly) does, at least more so than the pictures let on. It's far from perfect but until I feel like pulling out the seam ripper and redoing it, it will work! Now, I just have to finish the rest of my "to mend" pile, which grew from one basket to two. I'll get around to it, one of these days...
