Fashion Tweak! BCBG Striped Maxi Dress (After)
5 Ways to Wear Stripes posts, I have waaaaaaay too many striped things in my wardrobe. So I probably didn't need another one, but this BCBG maxi dress reminds me of a piece of Fruit Stripe gum, so ummmm yeah, I had to have it. And it didn't hurt that it was on clearance for $55.50 at Nordstrom Rack, marked down from $198. The problem, and there's always a problem with stuff on the clearance rack, was that it didn't fit me! The top was way too big and the whole thing was too long. So I put on my "tweaker" hat and cut 3 inches off of the bottom and turned that fabric into straps to hold up the top! It was a great solution because, well, baggy and saggy is not a good look. See step by step how I did it here!
