OOTN: Vintage 60s Wedding Dress

Last night I went to my boyfriend's friend's wedding and wore modified vintage!! This dress was my grandmother's, but she gave it to me a while ago. I'd not worn it before because it's too big for me. It normally has straps, a bow at the waist, a matching wrap and it's too large so I cut off the waist bow, tied the wrap around my waist really tight to hold it up and tucked the straps in! Here's the results

 





What I'm wearing:

Dress - Frank Usher

Necklace - Chapelle

Shoes - Primark

 

And here's the befores:




Bit Big!


 

What do you think of my vintage wedding look?

  11. This is quite brilliant! It suits you well and you look nice in this dress! I bet you must have been an attractive girl in the wedding and gives people a kind of good mood! How did your grandma react? She must have been glad to see it!
