Mama’s Gonna Move You Uptown

Mama’s Gonna Move You Uptown
Who knew this dresser possessed so much elegance?  She’s like Eliza Dolittle!  (Confession: I have never actually seen My Fair Lady, but I’m pretty sure it involves a country bumpkin type girl who gets all refined and stuff?  And then becomes a prostitute? Wait, maybe I’m thinking of that Reba McEntire song Fancy).  Um, yeah.  Either way, what I’m trying to say is this dresser looks fabulous!

    Beautifully done – love that dresser. BTW – You MUST see My Fair Lady! And NO Eliza Doolittle (Audrey Hepburn) is not a HOOKER! LOL

    Nor is she a country bumpkin. She’s more like an inner city street urchin. The Victorian kind.

    ha! Funny title. It looks awesome!

    And now “Fancy” is stuck in my head. Dang it!
    So happy to see Samaa’s work on Better After! She’s a sweetie and so talented!

    That’s a beautiful makeover! Just wanted to clarify also that you are confusing My Fair Lady and Gigi. Gigi was intended to become a mistress but ended up marrying the confirmed bachelor at the end.

    Beautiful crisp, clean black. Love it. I just recently did a rehab project on a free dress donated by my landlord (very nice of them) and it turned out almost exactly like this. I added some lilac damask print wallpaper as liners with some distressed hardware.

    P.S – ‘Fancy’ by Reba is my go-to ladies night sing-a-long after a few Mojitos! 🙂

    Lots of love from Vancouver, BC! xo
