This outfit began one way and then changed completely, all because of a zipper - something so small, yet so important. I started off the day wearing this:
I fell in love with this dress at first sight. I love the pattern, the colors, the length, and the way it ties in the back. Since it's a bit low cut, I decided to wear the t-shirt under it, since I was just running around all day. I paired it with my ballet flats, which are deceptively simple and super comfy.
I especially love the lacing up the back of the shoes.
And then...disaster struck! When I tried on the dress, I noticed that it didn't have any hooks to hold the zipper together, but that's usually not a problem. Unfortunately, this time it was. While I can zip up the dress without any problems, once I start moving, it does too. Down.
I pulled the t-shirt over the dress, then knotted it in the back and tucked the knot up inside the shirt. I had a little trouble with the tie at first, since it's so high, but managed to get it to cover the bottom of the t-shirt. Then I looped it around my waist and tied it in the front instead of the back. I think it turned out pretty well, don't you?
What would you have done?
