That was the inspiration to throw on these gowns. After all, we don't have any Oscars to attend...yet.
Tanya's dress had been languishing in her closet, (the victim of dated design) and mine had been quietly awaiting its exit from a Hollywood costume house. We got together, made a few creative alterations, (mine to fix a busted seam, darts, and zipper, hers to re-cut her cream number into something more contemporary by slashing the front, raising the waist, lifting the hem, and adding the tie).
And here's what we got!
It's awesome to have a friend who loves to play dress up and will indulge in those moments with you. If you get the chance, go buy something unique, and even a little silly and see what you can do with it! And if you have a "bestie", take her with you and make her buy that crazy, lamé dress. You never know what will come of it. It might be the best investment you both make this season.
