Look At The Pockets On That Thing

Scarf: Urban Outfitters//Dress: Resale shop [originally Anthropologie]//Bracelet: Local boutique//Shoes:Minnetonka 

 This dress… I like this dress a lot. I originally saw it onthis pin over a year ago, seeing it was from Anthropologie I knew I would not be splurging on this summer dress. I made plans to make my own using an embroidered vintage tablecloth but of course…I could not find one that could do the dress justice. I didn’t want to cheaply imitate it, I’m all for restyling clothes but I didn’t want to fail. Since I never found anything to make these pockets out of I gave up on the DIY. But alas, I was shopping at a local resale shop that carries clothes that do not sell or that have a defect and I recognized the pockets immediately. To my surprise, it was only twenty dollars new! I love the little things like that… like finding the perfect dress after giving up.

Do you have any stories behind your clothes?
