I always want to be there... Playing kick the can, watching lightening bugs. Canoeing through the other side to the Bowen Mill. I miss it... But alas, apparently this is what is like to be an adult (rotten).
So anyway despite the fact that I'm incredibly sad that I can't be at the lake this year (cue listening to granddaddy's the crystal lake now)...I figured it's just as good a time as any to talk about an outfit that my mom recently got into altered couture. The theme was "Marilyn Monroe," and I got to help inspire this outfit (last summer... When I was visiting her at the lake... I think I've adequately conveyed how much I miss the lake... But just in case... I miss being at the lake). This is the magazine cover that we are featured in... Although please note that the cover is not our design.
At first my mom thought this would be a difficult challenge but I assured her it would be easy. We quickly went to salvation army and I found the perfect outfits to alter (don't you just get a vision of what could be with these... No!?
Anyhow... This is what we ended up with.
