Although not necassarily "vintage", I often re-work my old clothes into different silhouettes to update the look and save on moolah. Such is true with this dress I've had since the year 2000, if I'm not mistaken. All I remember clearly is that I bought it when asymettrical hems were all the rage. Remember those days?
It was a basic black cotton dress with an asymmetrical hem that reached my ankles. I never threw it out cause it was so comfortable to wear. Simple fix was to chop off the rest of the fabric and leave it as a biased skirt instead. Perfect for lazy days like this spent doing errands. Out in 5 minutes. No make-up, full turban the cover up the disheveled hair, a simple black dress, and tortoise shell round glasses to finish the look.
Since I'm a lazy bum, I try to squeeze in my "excercise" while shopping. This is precisely why you'll often spot me wearing this pair of Skechers, yes Skechers (:p) Shape-ups or my tried and tested Fit-flops while in the bank or grocery doing some shopping.
And while were on the subject of saving money, I have a surprise for you!
