Funfetti


Short sleeves are awesome, but sometimes, I wish all my dresses were sleeveless! I found a quick trick to solve this problem: ribbon. I rolled up the sleeves of my dress and tied them to my bra straps with two pieces of ribbon that matched the fabric. So cute!


I love how the tied sleeves give the neckline a more retro shape. With the confetti print, it looks like a fun mid-century party dress! I put my hair into a low bun to draw attention to the little red ribbon bows.

  2. Really creative. i would have never thought of something like that. It looks really good and natural like that. I think with the sleeves down would look really good too paired with one of your collars if it fit the neckline just right. The print and colors of the dress are great.
