Big Pink Polka Dots



My friend Julie Ann (and boss lady) gave me this pink polka dot dress by Living Dead Souls (pictured above), but I wasn't too crazy about the halter straps. So, I decided to make a change and cut off off the straps and reattach as regular straight straps. I didn't want to bore everyone with another tutorial, but a few snips and voila!, it looks like an 80s rockabilly dress. Can I please be in a Stray Cats video?!

I'm not really a pink girl, but this dress makes me smile! I even made a matching hair scarf with the remaining material from the halter straps.

Straight straps are more my style, more comfortable and I can wear a regular bra!

Weeeeeee!

Since I'm wearing so much pink, I decided to put on my Pink Flamingo lipstick by Too Faced. I made this dress a little more 'me' by pairing it with some spider web earrings, bat necklace and wedge booties.

It's the little changes here and there that can really make a difference in terms of a garment. You can say I've been on a DIY rampage! *Wink*

Thanks for reading!

  2. I quite like halternecks, but I'd agree they're a bit impractical for every day wear. I absolutely love fifties dresses, so nice one! :D

    1. Thank you. The straps on this dress were bulky and were made of too much material, so that was the real motivator for the change....and I didn't want to wear a strapless bra. Hahaa!

    1. I was looking at the photos and I thought, "Wow I have a lot of tattoos!" Hahaha, I was surprised as I've been so covered up due to it being winter here ;)

  5. Cute! The dress is gorgeous. Yeah! Stray Cats video! I can hear the stomping and slap base :D
    I'm more a fan of halterneck since my shoulders are so narrow and slopey (dont know if that was correct ;)).

  7. Wow *_*! I love pink, so I can't not appreciate this dress. I like how you paired with that waistbelt and that necklace, it's less 50s and more gothabilly :D and you did a very nice job with the straps, it's a lot prettier now.
