If the Dress Doesn't Fit, Buy it Anyway

As you can probably tell from the umpteen posts I have created about the topic,  I simply adore vintage clothing. I also adore actress/fashion icon Tracee Elis Ross' unique style, so naturally I found her vintage dress video inspiring. Too many times I've passed up stunning thrift finds because they weren't flattering on my body... In this video, Tracee proves that you can buy those pieces anyway and just have them altered to fit.




Have you gotten any thrift pieces lately? Where are your favorite places to thrift shop? Leave your comments below.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Thrifting is really fun, it's like treasure hunting... If you ever visit the States, you should definitely do it

  2. But that is usually the problem! I buy it and then never alter it so it just hangs in my closet ;-)
