Being that it’s my birthday weekend…
…I had to share this creation with you guys that I got from Emily for her daughter. (My fun bday outfit will be shared tomorrow!!)
This is what she sent!
“Way back in early-ish 2010 when I first found your blog I thought, “I should try this!” but of course, never got around to it until now. I actually used to re-make thrift store clothes into garments for my younger sister when I was a kid, all by hand – not so much to wear, as to play in, but I identified with your blog right away.
Did someone say party dress??
Today’s piece comes from milady Sarah.
She writes…on pretty stationary…
“I found this at a resale shop and intended to make a shirt, skirt, or something out of it (but never did!) I know that you will turn it into something great!”
I mean it was from Daisy Fuentes’ line for Kohl’s…
…and she was legit back in the 90s (when MTV actually played videos) VJ’ing with Dan Cortese and Eric Nies…
…so I had to do her justice along with Sarah.
Let’s do it!! (Insert Jock Jams here…)
I came across this atrosh piece and just couldn’t pass up. I spent $1 and looking back I think this one is a piece where I should have bargained to get it a little lower. Thoughts?
Clownish, sure. Bold and bright, absolutely. A ski-unitard, totes. Something I can’t imagine anyone wearing, ding, ding, ding! I’m totally determined to make this work because neon pink is totally the rage.
If Rihanna can do it, I’m gonna try my hand.
I’ve been in a slight bridesmaid mode as of late, from all the wedding’s I’ve actually been attending and the fun b’maid dresses I’ve been getting down and dirty with for the book…there will be some total winners, I promise!! Natalia’s dress fit the theme, so I had to post it today.
Little sidenote…her subject line of her email was especially catching – College budget = 0 money for winter formal dress!
“So I thought I would send you some pictures of the dress I altered for my college junior year winter formal.
What I have to say is that the only sewing I’ve really had was when I was really young and my mom tried to get me to sew pj pants – I hated sewing then. When my roommate showed me your blog I started getting excited to sew, but the problem was I had nothing to start with. I went to a second hand store and bought a $25 dollar sewing machine and started asking people for donations for clothing.
Let’s see how this winner turns out!!
Apologies in the weak posting over the past few days…I’ve been shooting all the after pics for the book and it’s been lots of sewing-long hours-shooting in the rain days, putting me a bit behind schedule!
I’m taking the weekend to regroup and get all my outfits in line for next week!! In the meantime, enjoy these candids from the past 72 hours!
I got a fishtail braid, which was necessary. I loved them as a kid and thought they just had to make an appearance!
Perhaps you may see a wig in the final product…
I had some shimmery glitter added to my lips with glue and then had fun peeling it off in-between looks…
Last look of the day (with my awesome hair and makeup artist Natasha)…
Red lips, check!!
Can’t wait to share everything with you guys Fun new outfits coming up in a few days!! Happy Friday
