I absolutely LOVED this dress when I first laid eyes on it at a garage sale. The colors were fun, the crepe-y cotton was flowy and soft, but there was a pretty large issue. (I even wore a nude tank to really hit the fact home.)
This is going to need a little adjustment. I just don’t think that this would be appropriate if I wore it as is, you know :) Check back for the full post later today!
I received this piece from one of my favorite people in the world – Melissa of Shoestring Magazine - and she outdid herself.
Now if a “friend” gave you this piece as a present, I might want to rethink the friendship, however Melissa is my thrifting kindred spirit and knew this shirty-dress-kaftan would be right up my alley.
So not only did my sister from another mister give me this rockin’ ensemble…
…but also sent a Richard Simmons coffee table book in my package. This snail mail day was one for the records, because…
…Richard Simmons happens to be one of my best pals.
OK, well “best pals” probably is a bit of a stretch, but I did get my “sweatin’ to the oldies” on at his class a while back and that’s pretty close, right? So, want to see how this peachy piece turned out???
This could be my new favorite piece! Faith knocked it out of the park. Just wait until you see what this shirt looks like now!
As a brand new first time mom, I didn’t have time to scour the stores for the perfect outfit for my baby girl’s one-month pictures. I wanted something feminine but not too girly, so instead of turning to expensive outfits online, I decided to make a cheaper option for this one time wear.
I scanned my closet for ideas. I found this top which a friend had given me to wear during the pregnancy. I loved the detailed stitching.
I noticed the shirring on the back and knew it would make for an easy fit.
Just wait until you see Faith’s transformation…
I love outfits that get more than one wear in different styles! This dress got cut up a bit…
…ok, maybe a lot…
…and got turned into this lovely piece.
For the second wear, I turned it up a bit!
The best way to give a white backpack a little face lift for school? TIE DYE! I wanted to put together a fun tutorial that shows how to transform a basic white canvas backpack into something chic for campus.
A little DIY action will make this budget backpack look like you spent beaucoup bucks! The hardest part was picking the dyes!
All you need is:
Dyes: I went with an assortment of brighter colors, but pick any palette that suits your fancy!
Rubber bands/gloves: Gloves are a lifesaver for your hands when you’re dyeing! Make sure you protect those fingers.
Time to get to work!
