First off, isn't this lady the greatest? This is Lorraine, who works as a volunteer like me at the Veteran Medical Center of Long Beach. She is one of my favorite people!
I found this dress at DI, or Deseret Industries. It's a Mormon version of Good Will. Anyways, It came with a twisted strap and without any embellishments. I untwisted the strap to set it straight. I also added the trip down the front and the lace on the bottom. And of course, like most of the things I get at a thrift store, I sized it. I think it turned out cute!
