Ok. I rarely purchase clothes on eBay because I am obsessed with trying items on before buying them. Still, I took a chance bid and actually won this festive black and red plaid belted dress. With chic details like a square neckline, perfect cap sleeves, and a standout print, the dress is a winner. The straight cut of the dress, however, made it impossible to pull over my hips. Darn.
Luckily, I recently met my new favorite tailor—Julia of Adonai Custom Tailoring & Alterations in Lexington. She took one look at the dress and assured me that she could salvage my spoiled eBay buy. And, she did for only $8!
Today, the plaid dress is worn with a black leather belt. Black tights and t-strap pumps complete the work look.
