When I first saw pics of Jennifer Lopez and Kelly Ripa in this yellow Juicy Couture mini dress, I thought it was the cutest! And as most of you already know, I'm a huge fan of all things "cute". Chances are, if it's cute, then I'm probably already in love with it. I liked the bright yellow color of the Juicy Couture dress, the length and the fit, all of which inspired me to create my own, with pockets! And as most of you already know, I love pockets.
I did a total of 3 do-overs (or 3 seam-ripping sessions) of this dress before I finished it because I'm notorious for not taking my time and skipping steps when I sew. Thinking back on it, that's ridiculous... I'll learn one day (probably won't). But that being said, I'm super pleased with it, I've already worn it out twice, once out to dinner with my husband (where I got lots of compliments on it..) and another time just out running errands. It's fun to wear! Some of you may not be used to wearing such bright color, but I'm here to encourage you to try it! Embrace it! Bright color lifts your whole mood! Need a few pointers on how to pull off the look? Fabsugar recently had some great tips on how to harness bright color and wear it well. Check it out when you have a chance!
