Look of the Day: California Chambray


 Last weekend, I took a trip down to California to watch my mom argue her dissertation. She is now a doctor! I can't believe how far she's come, especially considering none of her siblings have a college degree. I am incredibly proud of her.

I, on the other hand, managed to cut myself on a loaf of bread. Obvi did not get her brain genes.

I was happy to have such a special occassion to wear my very first, hand-altered dress to. I actually sewed! I took the dress in at the waist, shortened the straps, and removed decorations on the bodice. It's not exactly the type of chambray dress I've been looking for (maxi shirtdress, please), but I still think it's lovely and I'm so proud of myself for sewing. I think I am getting more patient in my old age.

I think this dress is lovely and cuter than the ones you linked to, no offense! I'm so curious as to what the original looked like! Really well done!

Yay congratulations to your mom! That's a huge accomplishment! I think you looked so cute and casual in your chambray dress. You did a great job altering it. It's very 90s!
