What I Wore:
Dress: Black Market (altered by me)
Cardi: Smart Set
Shoes: The Bay
I bought this dress on my trip to Toronto last week. It had these weird sleeves on it and the belt was missing. I liked the collar and hem a lot though so I decided to bring it home and alter it a bit. The friend I was shopping with suggested I remove the sleeves since that was what made it look off. Following her suggestions I took off the sleeves and made the belt out them. I think it turned out really well, I am quite pleased with it actually. I took some step-by-step pictures while I was working on it in case anyone is interested in re-vamping one of their dresses. I will put that post up either later today or tomorrow.
I wore this dress out this afternoon for my mum's birthday lunch. We always go to this Chinese food buffet place in Burlington called Foo Ho. It is a little hit and miss sometimes, but the food was excellent today. We also see this lady every year who has her birthday there too and she was turning 93 this year! You wouldn't know it from looking at her too, she is very spry for her age. I hope I am that awesome when I am older. We all had a good time just chatting and eating and my mum opened her birthday gifts. We always make sure to buy her birthday and Christmas presents because she totally got ripped off as a child. We never give her Christmas bags of wrapping either, just to be extra safe.
I hope everyone is having a nice holiday season. Merry Ho Ho as Colin would say!
