Thrift Mix


I just whacked this thrifted dress short. I was so ecstatic when I retrieved the dress back from the tailor, and also worried...I haven't had many clothes tailored in Hong Kong, I was worried that I might have just ruined a nice thrift find :(

Yes I did. The tailor shortened the dress just fine, but he whacked the inner lining too short, it barely covers...anything. Sob sob.

Luckily I could still wear this with a super opaque tights.. T_T

shirt = thrifted
mini dress = thrifted, altered
belt = orange, jakarta
tights = no name
shoes = vincci, kuala lumpur


Check out how the dress looked like before it was altered.
Sobs.

Oh you DID get it altered! Sad face! But it still looks cute, so don't worry too much. It's a different look and that's okay =)

OH, yeah...the lining is too short now, but you teamed it up perfectly with those tights!
Cool!

Now you have to let us in on where exactly your thrift store finds come from! i'm a bargain junkie as well and head mostly to the back alley stores in Mongkok for my vintage fix.

Love your sense of style
