Old Boheme

This dress used to be long but not long enough to touch the ankles. I would not have had this cut but unfortunately the mid-calf length was so unflattering  I had no choice but to say goodbye to the extra inches. The cut-off cloth was then converted into a head scarf.
I love how flowy this dress is and how it makes me feel so 70's bohemian.

It's almost Christmas! I'm giddy like a child.:)

wearing:

Electric-pleated paisley print dress - thrifted 
Brown belt - Louis Vuitton (thrifted)
Black booties - People r People 
Shoulder Bag - thrifted 
Sunglasses - Mongkok night market
Shell earrings - Bazaar find

I love the look of this dress especially the high neckline. I think it was a good idea to shorten it and make a headscarf. I always think it looks super chic to have a matching accessory
