A Little Burn Won't Hurt

Thrifters know that items from the second hand stores aren't in it's pristine condition all the time. Perfect example is this sequined summer floral dress i got two weeks ago. I have a feeling the first owner didn't know how to use an iron and burnt the front of this gorgeous dress. I was a bit hesitant getting this, but wow, i LOVE the sequins. So cute. I know i must get it and think about later how am gonna repair the little damage. Well it's not that hard to decide cos the thrift shop owner sold it to me for half a $. YEs ladies, that's one trick you can do, you can bargain much lower than the asking price for items that has some little rip and holes that can be repaired. That's just okay. Or items that can be altered to make it more in style. So for the meantime, i covered the burn with my huge necklace. hihihihi. Hope it does the trick.

Have a great weekend everyone!
