Lots of Lavender Ribbons

Blouse: H&M (men's), Dress: Target, Ribbon: Michael's
Today I wore my new corduroy overall dress from Target over a white button-up that I rolled the sleeves up on and tied a ribbon around the collar. I also wore matching lavender ribbons in my hair and some maroon-y striped socks with my lavender tulle-laced oxfords. I tried to make my eyebrows lavender to match my ribbons but they turned out either too dark or too gray, I can't decide.
The dress had really nice pockets though! I put all kinds of things in them all day and also I like the little pink flowers all over it.
I hope you have a lovely day!

Unicorn Dress

 Dress: Vintage (Modified), Tights: H&M, Shoes: Forever 21
On Tuesday I pursued higher education wearing a pale green unicorn-print dress, striped tights and oxfords with lavender tulle for shoelaces with pink roses in my hair and pink iridescent glitter around my eyes. I did some alterations on this dress on Monday because it was just about an inch too small around the waist but it had a bunch of interfacing on the top half and also a neckline I didn't really like, but I loved the fabric.
I ripped a whole bunch of seams and cut out almost all the interfacing and excess fabric and put in panels on the side (which ended up making it a bit too big but I don't mind). Then, I cut down the collar by a few inches in the front and used some light aqua fabric and made 3 inch wide and about 1.5 ft long tubes which I pinned into pleats and sewed on as a collar. I used some ribbon in a slightly darker aqua to disguise where I attached it and also as a tie in the front because there was still a little keyhole that I hadn't closed up.
I think the dress turned out very super cute!
I hope you have a glitterific day!
