I fell in love with this ASOS dress when I first saw it featured in a Teen Vogue spread. I was totally into the colors…
…but I think I was even more into the texture of the piece with what looked like a tie dye of sorts. I had the perfect piece to use for this DIY…
…a dress that was shot for the book but didn’t end up getting used!
There were lots of these discolorations on the piece…
…so it really was the perfect candidate to try this ASOS lookalike out!
I’ve been playing with some color mixing/painting/dyeing and when I saw Stacy’s piece, it fit right in with all my work-in-progresses You’ll soon see them here, promise!
I have been a huge fan of your blog for a while now and I have been inspired to do a few of my own remakes (with the help of my best friend Jen who makes fashion accessories, purses, etc. – and who taught me to sew last year). This piece was adventurous…
Wonder what she’ll do? I’m loving the sleeves
The featured piece for today comes from Amelie!! Such a pretty name from one of my favorite movies!
Hi! I just wanted to say that I really like your blog, and you’ve inspired me to start modifying clothing too. I ended up buying a somewhat ho-hum paisley sundress for $4.99 at the Salvation Army.
The print on this long dress was a little too much for me…
…and the cut was definitely not flattering. The skirt was torn, and there was also a little tear near the bottom of the zipper in the back, so I decided to make this into a shirt!
My time in the South has been such fun – lots of family to visit, BBQ to eat, and vintage wares to find! I scored some goodies at the Goodwill outlet and let’s just say took advantage of their pay-by-the-pound system and scored some super fab clutches in addition to some more formal pieces!!
Because I was so lucky with my clutch finds, I figured a giveaway would be in order. Just want to share the thrifty love!! Today, I’m giving away this lovely black satin-y clutch (it’s also in the pic above!) with something else super fantastic…a pattern from my mom’s collection!! It was the one that I couldn’t stop giggling over. “Show-Me! Patterns” in their Reversible Vest variety?!?!? I know you want it!!
To enter, leave a comment below with something you remember loving/wearing/needing to have that you would totally take back now if you could. I remember ‘needing’ a Hypercolor T-shirt when I was a kid and when I finally got one (after the initial hoopla wore down) it didn’t change color!! A winner for this (as well as last week’s earrings) will be picked early next week! Can’t wait to hear all these gems.
Another remake from the Carolinas!!
PS, apologies for the tragicness going on on my head right now. Quick pre-shoot barrette move, not so good.
Pink jacket time!!
I got it mostly because of the Carmen Marc Valvo tag.
For a buck I just couldn’t resist. It fit me well, but it wasn’t something I’d actually choose to wear. It needed some punch, so that’s what I gave it. To the moon, Alice!!
