Wardrobe project: Beaded dress

Apr 10, 2009 in Wardrobe Project


I took these photos because I was thinking of selling this dress. It’s one of my most beautiful dresses and definitely the most intricate one, but I had only used it once since it was just too big for me. The beading makes it close to impossible to take in without removing beads so I thought it might be time to let it go.

When I was taking these photos I noticed that it suddenly fits me perfectly, which makes me happy both because I can wear the dress and because it means I’m actually not quite as skinny as I was a couple of years ago! I don’t think I will be selling it now.

Dress: Ebay. The brand is Jack Bryant.
Tights: Gift from Lisis.
Shoes: Gift from Henrik.
