This dress *might* be one of the oldest things currently in my wardrobe. You can even see it featured in this post from 2012 (which is honestly still one of my favorite outfit posts on here. I sure miss taking photos with my BFF!) I guess four years isn't really very long to keep something but I tend to get bored of things quickly. Just couldn't let go of this silly striped dress though. Although I refused to get rid of it, I also really wasn't wearing it much either. It's a heavier fabric and after a few washes it was covered in pills. I know it's not a huge deal but it just looked so messy. It drove me crazy, especially with how bad it was on my hip from my camera bag constantly rubbing.

I was organizing a basket full of random things in my laundry room last week when I found a fabric shaver.* I immediately threw on the dress and got to work. Ten minutes later I basically have a brand new dress!! I want to go through every single thing I own and get rid of pills. Off the top of my head, I'm not sure I can think of anything more satisfying than shaving the pills off your clothes.

*I have this exact model. It's under ten bucks, and is basically a lifesaver!

  1. Ahhh! I looove removing pills. I have had a fabric shaver for years but recently discovered the "Gleener" and it's all I use now, so great for delicate sweaters. And thank you for validating another of my obsessions ;)

  2. I LOVE sweater shavers! They're so cheap and so, so satisfying to use :)

  3. So cute and LOVE your hair!! Great curls!

  4. Ahhh! I miss it too. I still have my dress as well...although it probably doesn't fit at the moment. Ha!
    I am with you on the fabric shaver. I lost mine but it was soooo satisfying shaving off pills.
