I always love a colorful in-your-face print on clothing. This ASOS artwork dress I bought while in Chicago from my favorite fashionista-on-a-budget store Crossroads Trading Co. fits that description spot on. I purchased this dress a year ago and was waiting for the perfect event to wear it too, and finally I wore it to Art City LA. But a week before I wore it out, I stared at it and felt I needed to alter the dress by changing the long sleeves to short sleeves.
Living in LA has me spoiled all year round with the beautiful sunshine and warmth. Seeing long sleeves on this dress didn’t feel right, and I wanted some arm exposure and room to breathe! Once the change was made I was so glad I did it! I enjoy wearing bracelets, so this allowed me to showcase some fun silver jewelry. The sleeves were now the perfect length and I was ready to wear it out and feel my best. My takeaway from this is, if you feel an article of clothing needs a change to adjust to your lifestyle or fashion sense, go for it! Now what else should I alter in my closet?
