Climbing a Tree...

Dress: Thrift

I have had a really weird obsession with climbing things lately, trees, walls, you name it. I feel like the last five outfit post have consisted of me climbing around or balancing on a ledge. I'm sure there's some metaphor behind it but I'm to drained to think of one. I do have to say that balancing in five inch heels is no small feat, it takes concentration!

Anyways, I've had this dress for awhile now and was waiting until I figured out how to use my sewing machine to hem it and make it pretty. But I still haven't figured out my sewing machine and it's been months so I just took the scissors to it. I love the sheer fabric and pastel print. And the neckline is beautiful as well. I just couldn't wait any longer to wear it.

I love this outfit and all the wonderful colours. I can't wait sometimes either to hem things - chopping it off is sometimes the best idea!

My favorite is that 5th picture where you're twirling! The lightness of that dress accompanied with that floral print is just gorgeous. As well as your eyes! I think I've said this before, but they are mesmerizing!

Cute dress! If your not to familliar with your sewing machine, if there is a zig zap stich option on it, you can just sew along the edge and give it a fake kind of rolled hem edge. I really like your blog I have been following it since Sally Jane made a post about you a few months ago. I really like all your backrounds, it looks really pretty were you are :)

Have a wonderful day!

Oh, learn your sewing machine! I'm telling you, it opens up so many possibilities for altering and making clothing! It's worth it :]

The picture in the tree is phantastic. I get what you mean about climbing in heels: I am surprised every time my tights and shoes survive another such outing, mind you you seem a bit more daring than me ;-)
