Inspired Denim Dress....

Good morning and Happy Monday to ya ...

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I spent the majority of mine, cleaning, purging and packing. I'll be moving in two weeks and it's been a bit overwhelming now that I have to pack up ALL my shoes and clothes. Didn't realize I had so much ish... lol.. well I did but I wasn't concerned about moving it before haha. So I've added tons of New, Gently Used and Vintage items to my Closet Blow Out Sale... new pics will be posted later today. Stop by and check it out. Items will be priced to SALE Fast... $2 Blazers, $3 Vintage Dresses, $5 Shoes... tons of pants, skirts, tops etc..

Today's outfit was inspired by the beautiful lady of The Shoe Gawker she wore a gorgeous denim mini dress with a cut-out back detail, that I just loved. I recently purchased a vintage denim dress from the Salvation Army for $2, and decided to shorten it by 12 inches, to achieve this flirty mini dress style. I LOVE LOVE her dress, but I think my dress turned out pretty good, if I had sewing skills I'd attempt the cut out back detail, but I'll stick to what I can do LOL. 

Here are our looks side by side... be sure to stop by and check out The Shoe Gawker blog. You will definitely be inspired by her funky style.









What I Wore:
Dress - SA Thrift $2
Wedges - Charlotte Russe $9.99
Belt  - BCBG (Old)
