isabel lu dress, random belt, noir scarab cuff, vintage clutch, zara sandals
I absolutely love the details and color of this dress, but it was a little shapeless when I bought it. Even after tailoring, it didn’t quite fit me right. So I used the belt trick: sew two belt loops to the sides of the dress (or use two large safety pins to make the loops if like me, you’re in a hurry/sewing averse), then thread a sash belt or wide ribbon through the loops and tie in the back. This way you get an adjustable fit, and there’s no belt crossing your waist, causing fabric to bunch in the wrong spots. I also love how a belt adds to the draping effect on the back of this dress, and coordinates with the black accents in my shoes!
Well, happy Friday folks!
