Black to Winter

scarf, floral, dress, leather, jacket  Even though these photos are some of my stockpiles from long ago, this is pretty indicative of what i’ve been wearing lately. You cannot get me out of leggings. And what better to throw over the leggings that I haven’t taken off in days than a simple, no-fuss printed dress. We had a few days of sunshine & happiness when I was running around with barely a cardigan on.  Forty degrees feels so warm in the dead of winter. But in no time I was back to whimpering under 3 blankets and never taking off my leggings. I am such a cold weenie.

I love the simplicity of this dress, but have always struggled with its pattern. I found it at target a couple years ago, on a sale rack, in a size too small. The tiny florals reminded me so much of the elusive 90s vibe that I am constantly hunting that I just had to have it. I solved the fit issue by cutting and removing the elastic string inside the waist seam. Instantly it fit perfectly, no more cutting me in half.

Would you buy something that doesn’t fit perfectly? What are your tricks for fixing a pieces fit?
