Refashion: H&M Floral Blouse
I found a sweet floral shift dress (similar to this one) on sale at H&M over the summer. It was marked $7 with a 'take an extra 50% off lowest marked price' tag. Even though the dress was too short for me and hugged my bum a little too snugly, I was in love with the print, and even more in love with the price.
I took it to the counter at which point the employee rang it up for $7 & proceeded to try to tell me the tag meant either half off the original price or the lowest marked price. I tried to explain what a discount off the lowest marked price actually meant. It was a losing battle. Was I really working that hard to save $3.50? On principle, I was. But I let it go, because the dress was worth $7 to me. I still shake my head at that poor employee that really didn't understand what was going on. I wanted to pat him on the head and say, numbers are hard, huh?*
Anyway. I brought that shift dress home and chopped off the skirt. I gave it a curved hem, and I think it turned out pretty well.
What do you think?

*I would never actually do such a thing, I just have a very snarky personality in my head.
