Old is New again

Soccer Mom's really cute friend always passes down her old Lilly dresses, skirts, and polos down to me. Seriously, it's the best!

Some of the things don't fit, but they go in the Lilly scrap basket. (I'll have to do a post about all those scraps. The basket is a bit of heaven.)

Other things can be easily altered, like this super super super fabulous dress. Soccer Mom and I just picked it up from the tailor. Speaking of tailors, everyone needs to find a great one. Tatiana is THE tailor of south Tampa. Walk into her store and you're bound to see at least two people you know. She is the absolute best and extremely kind.

How cool is the print? I have NO idea what the name of it is, but if you do leave a comment! I'm kind of in love with it!!!

xoxo
