Outfit of the Day | A Weird Thing Your Tailor Can Fix

Jacket: Ali & Kris | Tee: The Limited | Skirt: F21 | Sandals: Target | Monogram necklace: eBay | Watch: Fossil | Bracelet: J.Crew

Y'all, we blew up on Pinterest yesterday. Hi everyone, if you're still around! If you came looking for a tutorial for this post, hi, I'm Sam, welcome to my life... we're crossing our fingers for being able to start sewing again after the bar exam. (We're also crossing our fingers that I don't sew my actual fingers. Again.)

So do you guys hate the exposed zipper thing as much as I do, or are you into it? It's cool if you're into it, this is a safe space. And since it's a safe space I can tell you that exposed zippers make me want to gently apply a fork to someones eyeball region.

They're dying off a little now, but if you're also part of the fork-in-eyeball camp and you come across a skirt or dress that is otherwise delightful except for the fact that someone put the zipper in inside out, don't despair! Size up, take it to a tailor, and have them put in a normal zipper (you need to go up a size to make sure they have enough extra material to replace the zipper with an invisible one). I know, it's pretty commonsensical, but it blew my little mindhole and so I had to share.

  2. I actually like the exposed zipper on some items. But I like the idea of changing out the zipper too. I really need to find a good tailor!
