Spoiled Diva Remix: Frumpy to Fierce

Hey Diva,
So…on my last thrifting excursion, I spied this floral print dress and decided to give it a home.

Now I know it has somewhat of a “granny” flavor to it, but I looked past that and saw its “diva potential”. I really like the mock turtleneck, padded shoulders and long sleeves which are some of my FAV design elements. It even has a matching belt which was unfortunately about 4" too small for my waist.

But with a simple snip snip here and a nip tuck there, I transformed this frumpy frock into something super HAUTE. I was even able to increase the length of the matching belt with the fabric that I cut out of the dress!
