Summery, Purple Thrifted Dress

I mentioned in my June 27th post that I picked up a cute, boutique-y looking dress during our shopping excursion. 

When I tried on this dress at Goodwill (Lilburn), something just didn't feel right. I eventually realized it wasn't the length, but too much fabric in the skirt that made it fit funny. I took it over to Sunny's and asked if she could take out triangle-shaped pieces from the skirt at the hips (with the top of the triangle being the hemline). As expected, she said "no problem" and quoted me $10. 

The dress ended up making a comfy and casual swim suit cover up for the July Fourth festivities down in Orlando. The picture isn't great, but you can tell I now have a fine-fitting, unique summer dress with a decent price tag ($12 with tags-on from Goodwill plus $10 for alterations). By the way, forgive this sweaty photo.

I'm thinking my brown cowboy boots would make a good match with this dress come slightly cooler weather...
