Enjoy my photos with my refreshed red dress. I think it’s equally great with basket shoes or with high heels. I’ve changed the bags too, the second one is also remodeled by me. I just added a piece of fur to a very basic purse that I would probably never wear otherwise. I stole the fur from the sleeve of my mom’s old winter coat. I grab it when I’m going out clubbing or on special occasions – the only inconvenience is its small size.

From ZARA to ZURA – DIY :)
I have this red dress for several years now. I’ve always loved it, but as it’s red and very noticeable I am quite bored of wearing it. Also, what I don’t like in it is that it tends to fall down all the time and it’s not the most comfortable model of dress, let’s be honest.
This is how I combined it a year and a half ago for a night out with my colleagues. I still remember this night – it was tragical… 🙂
And another red thing – this top, which I have from a second hand shop in Kazanlak – my hometown in Bulgaria (as lots of other stuff).
I’ve taken this one with me to Paris hoping that I will find something to combine it with, but actually as I’m fat now, lol, it is a challenge to put it on at all. Here’s how it was looking in… em… (counting)… 2007! 🙂 I had to put another top under it, because otherwise my boobs would be outside.
So here’s what I came up with:
After I measured how much of the top I need, I’ve used an old white eye-liner to mark where to cut and used scissors.
Then I had to sew it to the dress but it didn’t have to be visible, so I made the stitches on the inside part:
I used bobby pins to steady the pieces
And here’s how it looked after my amateur sewing
And voila – the result!
Photos of me wearing it are coming soon. Oh, and there’s this part that left, I don’t know what to do with it. I’ll keep it, who knows what I can use it for ;). Maybe a pillow… Anyway, let me know if you need it…
