Sharp shoulders, baby.

So here's the dress I talked about yesterday. I found it at a thrift store quite a while ago but only managed to alter it yesterday, whilst watching some mind-numbing tv show. I made it a whole lot shorter than it originally was and changed the hem to it. I also (accidentally) managed to alter the complete shape of the dress. No, I don't know the specifics of that any better than you do :)

But. I adore it! I have no idea where the hell I'd wear something like this (office Christmas party, anyone?) but am absolutely taken by the breath-taking shoulders and huge gold buttons. Ahhh, eight dollar love :)

I still need to find shoes that match the bright blue shade, these grey pumps had to do for the clothing trial shot.

In other news, I've finally managed to complete my Christmas shopping (for now, anyway). Bring on the festivity!
