this past weekend, seth's cousin got married. (more on that in a later post...) we've known about their wedding for almost a year now but, for some reason, i waited until the day before to find something to wear.
i had an errand to run in the east village, so i stopped by hill vintage to see if my friend jessica had anything i could wear. she pulled several dresses for me, but there was one that fit like a glove (albeit, a snug-fitting glove) & seemed like something i could wear on several different occasions.
in my opinion, one of the best things about hill vintage is that they have an on-site seamstress who can alter your purchases. if you're familiar with vintage clothes, you know a lot of the gems you find need a little tweaking here & there. i needed about a foot taken off the hem and it was so convenient to not have to take it to a separate tailor. i walked around east village for less than an hour before jessica called to say my dress was ready!*
dress//hill vintage & knits
bracelets//j.crew & jessica fox
*note: the alterations were simple and they knew i needed the dress by the next day. please don't assume they do all alterations in under an hour, but they're still fast!
