1 10 08

Why is it that when you have no money to spare you find so many things you want to buy, but when you have money there is nothing at all that you would spend it on?! Well, this is the former. I've just found this gorgeous 1930's evening dress on Etsy, but there is no way I could afford it!

I love everything about it - the sheer fabric, the white edges and most of all (of course) the huge bow. Oh well, I guess I'll have to let this one slide. I keep telling myself I probably wouldn't have somewhere fancy enough to wear a floor length gown to anyway, and I wouldn't have the heart to cut it shorter. If you can afford it, you'll find it here. How do you feel about cutting up vintage dresses? Yay or Nay?

that dress is gorgeous! i would never wear a floor length gown though.

i say yay to cutting up vintage dresses, if you get more use of it. clothes are made to be worn. i say.

Amazing dress!
Cutting up vintage, that's a tough one. For me it depends on the dress, if it is some amazing museum-worthy very old one then no... but them I wouldn't own something like that in the first place!
It makes sense to alter things, they are meant to be worn after all...

that dress is beautiful - you would definitely get more wear out of it if you cut it shorter.

i'm not sure about cutting it if it's that old though...it's difficult to tell because it's made it this far.
