I’d love to see a photo of the dress. It sounds adorable!
But the two adjustments you mentioned, although they sound minor, I think would definitely help a lot. The length of a dress is a huge determinant in how it can be worn, and I think shortening it might lessen the formality of it.
I agree that the littles changes really can help, because even if it isn’t much, it still change the whole dress a lot. But otherwise, I think it can look really cool to wear a vintage dress together with a pair of sneakers (like Converse or something like that) to give it a more casual modern style. Or a pair of high-heeled shoes in a strong colour (maybe a darker kind of blue), and accessoaries to match the brighter colour. Hopefully it will help, because it really sound like an adorable and very pretty dress!posted over 2 years ago
I’d love the see the photo too because I loved Zooey’s dresses in that movie! I love vintage dresses and like you said, they can be a little too dowdy or formal for everyday wear. Shortening the hem can really make a difference. If the sleeves are baggy, but you still want sleeves, you can tighten them up a bit to make them more fitted.
But if you don’t want to alter anything, the best way to make it modern is to add a great purse or clutch, and a cute pair of heels or jewels. Sometimes though you can work the vintage aspect and do your hair in a vintage way with victory rolls or a faux bob. It just depends on what you want to do!posted over 2 years ago

Good post. I study something tougher on totally different blogs everyday. It should at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and follow a bit something from their store.
