Boston Wedding – Dramatic Shirt Dress

…I easily “click” with, yet somehow Jean’s warm personality and quick wit immediately won me over. Despite being located on opposite ends of the country, we’ve somehow found plenty of occasions over the years to catch up over brunches, double-dates, and late-night iMessage flurries. It was so special to celebrate with Jean and Nick on their wedding day! Here’s what I wore to the wedding…a dramatically cut cotton poplin shirt dress from Theory. I p…

Adventures in Altertions: How to Shrink Clothing

…forget the weird scrunching/shrinking that can happen to the details of some garments, like button plackets, or decorative accents.

Now they measure 6″ in length, and fit perfectly on my wrist. All they needed were a little bit of alterations… One of these bracelets has been sitting in my jewelry box for literally years. I would pull it out every now and then, thinking I could just we…
