My recent fashion faux pas!

I decided to wear my new found combo of a sundress dressed down over a plaid shirt with a pair of tan loafers. For some reason, I did not consider the windy weather so when I stepped out of my car, the wind picked up underneath my dress and I managed to pull off a comical version of Marilyn Monroe’s iconic subway dress scene!

Sadly for the two people who witnessed my performance, they got a free show! Per my usual, I laughed it off and decided to proceed with my errand, shashaying away with what’s left of my dignity. It didn’t help that my two witnesses were doing the same errand as me. Ugh!

To avoid future “wardrobe malfunction performances,” I decided to DIY the hem of my dress with four foreign dime sized coins. (Thanks to YouTube for the inspiration!)

I then armed myself with a needle and thread. After strategically placing the coins one on each side and one to the front and back, I roughly stitched the coins in place with bold X’s.img-20190105-wa0001

To make it more secure, I used fabric softener cutouts over the coins. Again, I roughed stitched over each coin so it can last during normal washing and drying.

After further thought, I would not recommend wearing it when flying to travel or else my next perfomance is with TSA agents!
