Clarisky Piece of the Week - Spotted Peplum Dress

I know I'm a little late with the Clarisky Piece of the Week, but better late than never, right?....

Today I show you what I created to wear for Eco Fashion Week.  In the spirit of eco-fashion I decided to re-purpose one of the fun dresses I found on my vintage hunt in London to create......

The Spotted Peplum dress

The dress originally looked like this.

It actually wasn't all that bad except for the extreme length and the interesting shoulder boat neck.  I took the top part off to create the peplum around the waist, shortened the hem, took in the sides, and voila!!  

Do you likey?  I've bought a years pass for the polka dot and peplum train, how about you? Are you on board to retro town?

PS. do you have plans this week?  Check out Re-Fashion Vancouver on Saturday, I'll be there selling some great pieces for cheapy-cheap!
