As I’ve gotten older, I have learned the importance of a good tailor. And that just because something doesn’t fit you off the rack, doesn’t mean that it can’t still work for you. And the dress in today’s post is the perfect example. My mom and I stumbled on this gem at Anthropologie when my parents were in town a couple of weekends ago. It was originally $228 and we found it on the sale rack marked down to $48 (um, WOW!). It was the gorgeous fabric that initially drew me to it, but the original length was tea length and it just swallowed me up and was really unflattering. But neither of us could get over the fabric (you should see it in person!) so we hatched a plan to have it shortened and I took it to my tailor (who also couldn’t get over the fabric), and he shortened it for me for a mere $20. And I have to say, I think it is one of my very favorite dresses in my closet right now. I guess it goes to show that it can be worth it to think outside of the box a little bit. So if you don’t have a tailor, I would definitely suggest finding a good one in your neighborhood-you just never know when they might come in handy!
