What I wore: Restyled Floral Dress // Vintage Dress Makeover.

Dress: vintage, restyled
Bag: Roland
Hair bow: handmade
Earrings: unknown
Sandals: h&m

Hello! You know I love vintage clothes, right? :) At the beginning of the year, I found this pretty dress at a thrift shop for just a few Euros. I didn't like its shape, but I immediately fell in love with the beautiful pattern. I love this floral print and its colors, so I had to take it with me. Then the dress has been hanging in my closet for a few months before I finally found the time to restyle it.
The original dress was long and had nice sleeves, but I didn't like the shape of the dress.

I cut off the top of the dress and inserted a rubber strap. Now I have a super pretty strapless floral summer dress, it didn't cost me much (just some time to alter it :)) and it's really unique.
When we recently went to the Mauerpark in Berlin, Anja afterwards took those photos of me. :*
How to you like my dress? Or do you even like the original one better? :)
Happy day!

  1. I like both, before and after. But I think the altered dress fits you better. Great job!

  2. Das Muster ist wirklich wunderhübsch. Und es zu ändern, war die richtige Entscheidung, finde ich. So wirkt es einfach moderner und sommerlicher.

  3. wow, that is really beautiful I see why you couldn't leave it behind. I think I prefer the restyle, the original is a bit too peasant style.

    cheers.

  8. Supertoll ist es geworden! Mir gefällt auch das Vorher, aber nachher wirkt es moderner und passt besser zu dir. (: Ich liebe auch die Kombi und die türkisfarbene Tür - und die Frisur steht dir total super!

    Alles Liebe,
