Pegasus Dress...

Pegasus Dress

My old cycling team, Pegasus, has the greatest pink and black uniforms. Katy, a graphic designer, designs them and they get more and more amazing every year. Even though I'm not racing bikes at this moment, you can bet that if they ever put a branch in Colorado or if I move back to Wisconsin I'd be bike racing in a second because it's so much fun to be on that team!

I found this dress completely trashed at the thrift store - someone had cut the closures off the front, and it was hanging sadly on a hanger. I sewed nine little hooks and eyes on it, and borrowed a belt from a different dress, put on a vintage slip and it's good to go! I'm thinking about adding a bow to the collar, too, in the same pink as the details on the dress.

Since I'm not racing and don't have the latest pegasus kit, I'm going to let this ridiculous pink and black dress fill the pink and black void in my heart...

  3. Such lovely pictures! And I'm in love with this bow dress! It is so pretty and looks perfect on you, and it doesn't look like it was in a miserable condition at all!
