Tessa was shopping one day at Goodwill, when she spotted a 1950s style wedding dress. It had a full skirt and a fitted bodice, along with long satin button sleeves and lace up to the throat. She saw the potential immediately! She removed the sleeves and lace collar and lowered the neckline to a sweetheart cut. Her date's pants and tux jacket were also purchased at Goodwill. She added a black satin stripe on the pant legs and then added purple to both ensembles. She loves to shop at Goodwill all the time to create her own quirky sense of style.
