i missed blogging...
i missed my daily reads...
i missed commenting on awesome posts...
i missed my daily routine...

last week we went to the mall to look for some stuff for my husband and i chanced upon this dress from Pull and Bear which is a left-over from the recently concluded (hehe) sale season here in Riyadh. I got it for 59 saudi riyals which is still a bit too high for me but considering its original price at SR119, it's still a good deal, right?

note: gray fabrics were originally not part of the dress...

as soon as we got home i noticed its a racerback dress - which i'm really not comfortable wearing . i don't wanna return it nor have it exchanged because i really love its floral print and color...so i worked on a little magic..haha

i took out an old tank top and cut out the edges and hand-sewn them on the back part of the dress..

then to make it appear really part of the dress, i attached a piece of the front part of the tank top to the neckline of the dress and voila! i'm more comfortable in it now, hehe.

don't mind my stitches...  =)

oh, and it's also kinda short for me so i would probably (or definitely!) wear leggings with it, unless i'd wear it to the beach - in the Philippines, that is..or any country other than Saudi Arabia, lol...

it's good to be back!

  2. Thank you for following and visiting my blog. I just realized that I started following yours on Thanksgiving Thursday. What a pretty dress! Yes, I'm very tall and find that most of my dresses are pretty short. It was fine when I was a teenager, but now that I'm in my 30's, I need to wear leggings of something of the sort too. (Not because anyone would frown on me but because I'd feel somewhat embarrassed.) I can't wait to read more of your blog. Have a great day!

  3. Good job on the dress! Oh, and the mid-season sale is coming up! Lol.

    Ms. Jeel, you should join the Pinoy Expats/OFWs Blog Awards (http://www.pinoyblogawards.com/) this year. The theme is centered on "family." ;)
