Thrift tip: Invest in alterations

You may remember back in the day that I bought this amazing Badgley Mischka gown for 20 bucks. Very cool the way it was, but it wasn't a perfect fit. Before a fine function this fall, I took it to Ginger Root Design, where Erin took a gander at it and quickly decided it could be made even better.

Before...sorta grumpy

A bit of hemming and some tucks on the side, and it looked as if it was made for me. Check it out:

You can't even tell I was recovering from the plague!

MC looks dapper too!
Dress: $20. Alterations: $80. Shoes: $10. Jewelry: borrowed. Handbag: old as heck.

Piece of cake.
