We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.

Yeah. I've been gone a long time. A lot has happened. I could go into it, but I think I won't. Just know that I'm back now.

And I am going to return with a little refashion and outfit post. It has been really chilly here in Texas this week. Which has been kinda nice. I'm not ready for summer. I've enjoyed wearing my tights, boots and sweaters one last time. I found this dress at Goodwill ages ago. It was mostly okay. But it did have this weird ruffle at the waist. And if there's one thing I don't need, it's anything extra at my waist.

I just did a few minor tweaks and it ended up looking like this.

I love it. You can't really tell from these pictures but I made the hemline longer in the back and shorter in the front. I saw that same look on a dress at UO and thought it would be fun to try with this dress. That's the really great thing with buying things second hand. You can take risks with the refashion because you haven't spent that much. So if it all goes wrong, it's okay. Because you didn't spend a fortune on it.

Thanks to my faithful few who read this little blog. I'm back. Pinky Promise.
