So.... I bought this dress because 1. It was 50% off at Goodwill (1.90). 2. I thought I would give it my sister. Then I got it home and decided I really liked the fabric, so I planned to add it to my Sun Room 'planning box'. I was going to re-cover two chair cushions with it (note still looking for those 2 chairs...). Then tonight I decided to paint the oval frames red, modge podge the fabric to the cardboard backing of the frames and then modge podge the printed pictures to the fabric.
(Here is a sneak peek of the frames)
Before I ripped into the seam I thought I should give it a whirl just to see what I thought of the dress (I am obsessed with dresses, love how they feel, how they fit, how girly they are). Putting it on was a BIG mistake...
It's SO cute! (Darn my cute curves they really look great in a dress.)
(As for my arms - I'm working on those! Running on my treadmill does nothing for my arms so my awesome friend came over to demo a at home workout for me). If you are looking for 'Healthy Lifestyles for Women' my awesome friend is hosting a class a couple days a month! It's great and its local and its totally free! I can always use the accountability and love new suggestions on how to life more healthy!
