My birthday is coming up, so when I saw this submission I not only thought it was a fun birthday ensemble, but got me thinking about what I’m going to wear!
Here’s Kerry’s message…
My daughter had her 16th birthday a few weeks ago and her friends “gifted” her with this delightful, plus-sized sequin and beaded top. She liked the funkiness and quality of the fabric but a top was not something she would wear.
I think I need that top for my birthday! Let’s see what Kerry did…
Leanne got her hands on a muumuu!!! I had to share this one with everybody stat.
I’ve been following your blog for a while, and have been super inspired by all the recreations! Since things have been winding down at the end of grad school, I’ve found a little more free time to try out some of my own recreations. I’ve also found that my creative juices, which were piled under homework, are now starting to resurface! So, I went shopping at a local thrift store and found this beauty for less than $4.
I loved the print, and it reminded me of the many hideous nightgowns/robes you have fabulously remade, so I decided to give it a go.
I love the print too, Leanne!! I would have for sure snagged this piece as well. Let’s see how she transformed it!
It’s a break from clothes today, yay!!
I’ve got a little project that I’m working on and needed a bunch of goodies like these for it, so today we’re doing coasters!! Hello cork that isn’t coming out of a wine bottle I’m opening!!
The last apartment I lived in had cork flooring in the kitchen that I was just obsessed with, and these coasters reminded me of it because of the thin, tile-y feel! I’m not re-laying my floor if you’re wondering….still keeping them as coasters!
OK, this sweater was a no brainer when I snagged it at a garage sale. It’s H&M, a thicker black knit, and was virtually brand new because the tag was still hanging from it. The only issue…
…a BIG snag leaving half the sleeve open!!
I’m a novice knitter, but the beauty of this piece was that the unraveling happened right on the seam! It just looked way worse than it was, and I knew that an easy hand stitch would make this look brand new.
It’s denim day!!
There’s a whole lotta denim going on, however I’m loving this lighter shade, so that’s the good part!!
I love this Stella McCartney piece that Kirsten Dunst is wearing, so I’m using this as my inspiration!!
I kept telling myself, “we’ll get there Maris, we’ll get there!!”
