Revival Files: Dress Makover

Total Cost: $6

You.guys. I'm about to bust a fool. I don't necessarily know what bust a fool really means but it sounds completely appropriate for this situation. Here's the deal, the 411, the low down. I'm a really trusting person. I like to think the best of everyone. If someone has wronged me, I try to think that I've been misinformed before I go all crazy eyes on 'em. If a stranger came up to me and asked if they could take my firstborn to their candy shop...nah just kidding I'm not that much of an idiot. The point, I trust people.

Well the bubble has been bursted.

Yesterday in the bubble of all bubbles. Brigham Young University, the place where people breathe sunshine and rabbits poop rainbows and lollipops grow in fields, my bike was stolen. Yeah it sucks that my bike was stolen and all, but the worst part is that now I'm all suspicious of the man. Yesterday someone tried to hug me and I kicked them in the shins because I thought they were trying to lift my wallet, I saw some guy chasing another guy and I told Matt someone was being followed outside and made him go check it out. Turns out it was just a boy trying to catch up with his friend and Matt ended up looking a little odd. 
What has become of me???

I think I need to buy a kitten or perhaps befriend an elderly woman named Ruth to cure me of my suspicions. In the mean time, I made some shots of what the thief might look like, you know just take my face out of the equation and I think it should be right on the money.
So have you seen the thief?!

  2. I'm so sorry about your bike! The world will gain your trust back... it just takes time.
    But, oh. my. gosh. Your clothes makeovers are so amazingly fantastic. I just can't believe it! How long did this dress take you to re-do? What was the hardest part? The armpits?

  17. Awww, that sucks! I cannot imagine the horror of having my bike stolen. Which is why I kind of rarely ride it to go places. I'm not trusting.
    That dres is fab! I am so so impressed by your skills. This looks like a dress Rachel Berry would wear, which I mean as a highest compliment!

  19. The dress is so amazing! I love how you rework otherwise frumpy 80's/90's frocks into outfits that are totally wearable. It also reminds me of this little lady, http://bit.ly/mSjt0S
    I'm also sorry about your bike. I would think that's the last place where a bike would get stolen. Hopefully it will be found. :)

  26. Lame about your bike! You crack me up though.
    And I LOVE the dress. I have a million thrifted dresses to repurpose, but I don't have the creativity you do, so they've just been sitting there. I would have never thought something that cute could come from something.... like that. :)

  45. Awww that's awful! I'm sorry. The suspiciousness sounds pretty awful too. But your dress is super amazing! How in the world did you manage to make it so adorable?!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm going to show these pictures to my Sewing Pile and say "See? See what you could become if we could only work together?! Soon my pretties, soon."

    I'm sorry about your bike. I'd love to have a bike but I live in a particularly hilly and cobbly-streeted park of the world. I hope you regain your trust in the world - people have told me I'm too trusting (OK, gullible) sometimes, but I think it's way better than being scared and cynical.
