Leather and lace

DIY open-back lace dress, uo shorts, DIY leather clutch, jeffrey campbell boots

Rainbow lens flares for the win! With summer at my feet means a lot of time on my hands.  So I got busy. With my sewing machine of course.  I picked this dress up some time ago from a local thrift store and have been itching to do something with it ever since.  These recent heat waves called for some skin exposure which proved to be extremely efficient for those summer breezes and extremely painful for sitting in a smoldering leather car seat. No bueno.

Jeez, where do you find all these cool places to take photos?! So jealous of your super artsy area. I live in the definition of Suburbia, USA.

You always have the most unique shoes. Love these.

The back of that dress is gorgeous! I can't believe you did that, it's definitely something I would attempt to do and end up ruining!
