Turquoise Disco

{Photos by Love K; Wearing Dolce Vita shoes, Modcloth dress, Halston Heritage clutch}

Initially this Modcloth dress looked frumpy on me as it was a little too long. But nothing a few saftey pins can't fix. I love the copious ruffles on the dress and of course the DIY headpiece I made for $5. Yeah, the steps will be orchestrated in an upcoming post, and yeah, this shiny goodness is cheaper than a Big Mac. Eureka!
