Transformation Tuesday 

Bonjour! 
This post is SUPER late, it is almost Wednesday where I live! But, I needed to share with you my vintage formal dress for my transformation Tuesday. 
Stare in amazement:


It is a vintage black formal gown with gold, black, and silver beading on the top that stops at the natural waist. 

In its full glory:


This marvellous piece of clothing was given to me by a family member in great condition! All it needed as a few extra beads added on, some re-stitching of the hem where it has been stepped on and ripped out, and finally some adjustments to the elastic that helps hold the dress up.

This dress is by far one of my favorite finds and pieces! It is by far more stellar in person! I mean who can go wrong with a black dress?! 

If you enjoyed this thrifty find and want to see more hit up that like button and follow me!

Stay thrifty my friends!
