Happy Saturday!!  This is my last newly altered dress for now.  {I have some vintage designer suits that I show y’all in Fall!}  I am in love with this color sky blue, and I’m gaga over all the embellishments on this dress.

It has pockets and wonderful rhinestone details on the bodice and sleeves.  It’s such a classic shape too!  If I want to make it modern, I can wear edgier shoes and a different necklace and bag.  {These heels were worn in my sister-in-law’s wedding almost 2 years ago.}  It’s all in the details!
Have a wonderful weekend y’all!  We’re headed over to Dallas for Mr. S’s 10 year medical school reunion.  The Fort Worth Arts Festival, the White Rock Home Tour, and a friend’s crawfish boil are also happening things this weekend!  So many things and not enough time!
