Cocktail Dress Hour : Marc Jacobs Feather Dress

I haven’t done one of these posts in forever so I thought I’d go shopping in my closet and see what I can find. I had forgotten how much I adored this dress, unfortunately it’s never been worn outside of my closet (not hard to figure, it’s WAY too low-cut). I plan to get the front altered so I can feel more comfortable in it.

I found this beauty on ebay and fought tooth and nail to win it. I figured I would never allow myself to pay the $4,200 it supposedly retailed for but I can at least afford it on ebay. I don’t exactly know what I can do to make it more conservative (therefore more “me“), any ideas how I can remedy this?

And here I am wearing the Theory Darlin set. Jean had asked if I planned to wear it as a set so I took a few pictures of me wearing it to see how it looks. I hadn’t realized this when I was in the fitting room but the waist and hip areas on the pants are too loose but the legs are tight. I don’t know if that’s how it’s meant to look.

I don’t think it looks too bad as is, but I do think a trip to the tailors is in order. I have a few other things that need to be altered as well. My wallet already hurts.

Hi, I am Elle!
