Then I saw Janis Thriftday post.
This is the before picture... cute within its own rights.....
This is the after.... I think its just lovely.. not sure if I can give it up to the boutique.... hmmm

Another idea I 'borrowed' from Janis... I LOVE her style. It's so elegant & glamorous... I still have a ways to go... ahhahaa
