To clarify: no I did not and am not going to (in the immediate future, anyway) get married. I just shopped this little number out of my closet; so it's "old" and technically it's blue.
I actually adore this dress. The only reason it made its way into any maybe territory is due to the minor sewing it currently requires. It's only been out of the house on one other occasion--to work, and that day literally half of the buttons fell off! Since then, I was worried I'd lose all of the other ones too if I attempted to put it on again. And in the meantime I completely neglected to sew any of them back on.
This morning, while browsing through my maybe rack, I stumbled upon it and brought it back to life with the help of a few safety pins. I still haven't sewed the buttons back on, and you can see how some of them are pinned in place in the last photo.
The pins actually seem like they'll hold better than the thread, so for now I have a makeshift shift dress. But atleast with the minor alterations I can reclaim it instead of hoarding it. Welcome back, dress! I saved a spot just for you.
