Stylishly Comfortable in LuLaRoe

We've been celebrating Violet's birthday all weekend. For the birthday feast part of the celebration, I chose an extremely comfortable dress gifted to me by Rachael Moshman, a LuLaRoe fashion consultant.

This was a perfect choice indeed for Violet's birthday brunch. The dress is extremely soft and comfortable. There's lots of room in it. It's airy for this heat. It's wearable and stylish too.

DIY Vintage Dress to Fashionable Tunic

I bought a vintage dress off of a sale rack. I liked the bright colors, bell sleeves, and sweetheart neckline. It had a small barely noticeable stain. I sprayed it with stain remover. Washed it. No change. I colored over tiny stain with a sharpie thinking it would blend in with the large motif. Nah. Nope. Bad idea. I washed it and ended up with TWO stains on my $5 vintage dress.

It also had some loose stitching on a back dart and it was a little tight. I was able to move in it but given the other issues I decided to proceed with fashion surgery and turn it into a tunic.

Thrifted Clothes and Cupcakes Make Me Happy

While indulging in a few of my favorite things, I wore a few of my favorite things - african print head scarf, a vintage jacket, and thrifted jeans.

I cleaned out my fabric stash and discovered scraps of one of my favorite pieces of cloth. I made a dress 7 years ago and held on to the remnants thinking I could piece together a skirt. That never happened but there was a square piece perfect for a wrapping hair up.
