I was working in Orange County last month with I Love to Create and Joann’s getting my tie dye on with shoppers, and I stopped at a sample sale on the way home.
First thing’s first. I LOVE myself a sample sale. It’s the one place where you can get your hands on more expensive branded gear for wayyyyyyy less than retail. This sale was at the Dainty Hooligan warehouse in Anaheim and I took advantage of the $1 bin that housed a ton of “damaged” items! I’m going to show you all the pieces I scored for a buck this week that I transformed into new, non-“damaged” items that look like they came right off the rack!
First piece I scored, this fab romper:
I couldn’t find the exact one on the site, however I found something similar for $42.50.
So, I’d say I got a steal! But, the downside was that there were spots EVERYWHERE!
There’s a spot…
…and there’s a spot…
…and there’s another few spots!!
So, what do you do when you’re stuck with a slew of spots on an ivory romper???
You know what to do. When in doubt, DYE IT OUT!

Hi friends! The reveal has finally arrived. This lovely white jumpsuit has gotten a bit of a makeover
It started off a bit too tight (merm, not comfortable in certain areas fo sho!!) and it just wasn’t something that I was going to want to wear in the current state.
I pumped myself up, did some kicks…
(I always think of Molly Shannon and her SNL, Sally O’Malley sketch)
…and got this jumpsuit ready to be DIY’d.
You guys. I scored the most amazingly ridiculous vintage jumpsuit that is in the process of getting adjusted as well as a shade change. Color thoughts?
I couldn’t decide, so I started on another DIY to tide me over in the interim that involved a little tie dyeing! I can’t wait to show you this project
Rubber gloves are on this week, because there’s a whole lot of color changing on my agenda!
I’ve been obsessed with Pom Pom shorts since I saw them in Bali last year and now I’m seeing pairs pop up everywhere! So, why not DIY a set to rock this summer? (PS, it’s so easy!)
I’ve been seeing a slew of different styles online, with all different price points, but the DIY pair I’m going to show you is only going to cost around $5. Seriously.
Pom Pom Inspiration Shorts:
$52: Raga via Threadsense
$125: Gypsy 05 via Revolve
They’re going to be my poolside, road trip, Sunday afternoon shorts ALL SUMMER LONG!
Check out the easy steps…
I hope everyone had an amazing weekend! I was in San Diego for Father’s Day and couldn’t resist pulling up a little archived Kodak shot of me and my dad.
Here’s a little teaser of an easy and adorable tutorial coming later tonight that involve two very special words. POM POMS.
Eeeeee! I can’t wait to show you how SIMPLE my new summer staple is.
