Thrifting: The Little Black Dress


I don't know any girl that doesn't love a Balmain dress. Sparkles, bodycon, and short...yes please! But since my budget isn't exactly in the Balmain ballpark I decided to do some hunting at the local Good Will to see if I could find something along the same lines and here's what I found:





the dress started out as a long sheath dress, I'm not really a fan of mid-calf length dresses I either like them to be long or short, so I adjusted the hem of the dress and add a belt to make the fit a little tighter. I'm really happy with how it turned out!
