I bought this short-sleeved cardigan (vest?) a few years ago ... somewhere. I don't even remember buying it. I suspect it was at a bag sale, during which I often just grab things based on texture and color with an "I can make it work" attitude. Fast forward a few years, and I've worn this thing maybe twice. Time to either get serious about layering, or pass it along to another loving home.
And this dress? I was married in it. I've been wanting to find a way to restyle it so that I don't just feel like I'm really, obviously, wearing my wedding dress to work (which would not be as much of an issue if I didn't have a wedding photo in a prominent place on my desk), so I thought today's challenge was the perfect time to go for it.
