Accidental Swap

swap6

Once upon a time there was a tall girl who bought an amazing vintage dress for $10. In her excitement to wear it the very next day, she went scissor happy and hemmed it a wee bit too short. She said a few bad words, recovered and decided to share the dress with her shorter friend.

The day after once upon a time, the shorter friend discovered a pair of 7fam jeans in her cupboard that she had not worn in a long time. They were way too long and didn't fit quite right. So, she gave the jeans to her tall friend who fit them perfectly (like Cinderella and her glass slipper but these pants thankfully didn't come with a prince... that would have become an awkward situation) and threw some bleach on them. There might be more bleach in the future because the tall friend likes her jeans bleached and damaged, much to her mother's disgruntle.

And then the short friend with her cute dress and the tall friend with her new favourite bleached jeans lived happily ever after*.


* except for the moments of regret that the tall friend had over her stupidity at cutting the dress too short. One day she hopes she will be much wiser...

From looking at the picture of tall and short friends, I would say that the dress is barely long enough to cover a swimsuit on tall friend. Correct?

The shoes, the bleach, the accordion pleats, what a wonderful story they make!

I love the jeans. The bleach makes them much more interesting. I had never realized how tall you are. Lucky girl!

Anon- ha. yeah, I like a short hem but this one was mayyybe a little short;) The pleats help make it feel even shorter. All I can say in defense is 'whoops?'... so dumb of myself.

If I might speak in your defense. I find, through personal experience, that pleated skirts become awkward and unruly when I am attempting to determine their most flattering length.

Very cool upcycle to the jeans by the way! Tall friend and shorter friend...very cute together!

This makes me so happy and it reminds me how incredible it is that we're all women and our bodies are all so different. So cool.

I just love a happy ending! :)

But, jeans and bleach? How do I do it? Just pour bleach over jeans or are there any secret tips you might want to share?

Jackie said...

Awe how sweet. That's good "clothing karma" right there ;)

newpetite said...

That is one pretty dress! Even I would have listed out a few bad words and held on to the dress even if I could no wear it :( Loving the destroyed jeans and how you paired it with a simple tee and a structured jacket! I never realized how tall you were until the last pic!
