Project Restyle Numero Uno!

Ok, So I have begun my own project restyle.. and I must say, it is SUPER fun.

I have this dress that was just a little bit too tight on my chest, so I decided to make something out of it.. Kinda reconfigure it into something amazing.. The dress had an empire waist, and it buttons all the way down the front. On the back it has a lace panel, that I really loved. So, I cut out the part on the front that went over my chest, then I lengthened the straps so that I could wear it like a a skirt, but still keep my lace panel in the back. I absolutely LOVE it now, even more so than when I first got it!
 The whole time I was working on this lovely dress, I was gathering inspiration from a great movie..... Pretty In Pink.
I took TONS of pictures, most of which were blurry, or I wanted to put in.. but that would've been obsessive. My dad thought that I was crazy the whole time, cause I kept on getting up closer to the screen every 30 seconds to take a picture. But hey, it's all for the love of the blog, right?

So pretty. She looks alot like my mom, but then there are times when I feel like I look like her.. maybe if you combined me with my mom... then it would equal Molly... hmm.

I just love her style, it inspires me to create pretty things, and to be myself and secure in my style. Cause it's unique, and that's good. 

"I love this woman, and I have to tell her.... She's gonna laugh."

The scene where Duckie comes into the record store and lipsings/ dances. Great scene, not so great for someone taking pictures of the tv.. But, I did snap a picture of the famous shoes. 

Oh the giddy in-love feeling. Going through that right now.. 

Don't you just love Iona? Shes just too cute. What's not to love? 

They should've TOTALLY ended up together. It slightly upsets me. Alot. 
NOWWW. I have more!
I have actually (and you guys will be proud) on my............................ SECOND PROJECT RESTYLE!
I am super super super excited about this one... but I'm not going to tell you what it will be... but I will show pictures of what it is!! When we went to lunch last week with my grandparents, we convinced them to swing by Claremore to go through some antique stores. While we were shopping, I found this lovely gem...

A super pretty green vintage suitcase.. The inside is a little bit rough, so that's why I'm restyling it!
I'll put up pics of it when I'm done!
Anywho, it's time for bed.
xoxo, abs.


  1. I love what you did with the dress! Before you even mentioned Pretty in Pink I was thinking that you reminded me of that movie! LOVE it! One of the best movies ever!

    I agree, Andy and Duckie should have ended up together.
    "I will always be.....the Duck-man." and points to his awesome shoes!

  2. Oh, and I also LOVED Andy's hair! I secretly wished I had her hair in this movie!
