The challenge is to take a piece of vintage clothing or shoes, accessories (the possibilities were endless!) and give it a bit of a new look using your imagination.
Since I love vintage HOLLYWOOD style glam, I decided to use this lovely vintage dress and jacket set. (Purchased from an antique store that was going out of business for 1.00)
Although stunning already, I thought it could use a little, well, you know... REVAMPING!
This is the dress. Just your basic sheath, zipper in the back.
The top or jacket with the feathery cuffs really makes the outfit. Note the bow in front. But, still, it could use a little something extra.
Here is what I found in my vintage stash to revamp it with. A broken 4 strand necklace, some rhinestone bling earrings, pins, and one of my old dancing costume pieces.
The dress was vintage so I knew I had to keep the theme going. I gathered my supplies and went to work.
The matching rhinestone earrings give the shoulders a bit of an epaulet lift, too.
