For today’s remake, I began with two things I already had in my collection – they were old H&M sweaters that I wasn’t wearing that were in my donation pile.
However, for my trip to AZ I needed a couple of sweaters for one of the TV segments that I was doing, so I went right to these both.
Exhibit A (sweater which has an annoying neck):
Exhibit B (sweater which is overly pilly):
Check out and see what I crafted these two into!!
If my mom wore this dress in the 80s, it would have been one that I coveted as a kid!
The teal suede sash in front? Better than Miss America!
And that print! It’s like an abstract piece of art – brush strokes all over.
It’s a little much as is…
…but I’m going to make it winter ready in just a few steps!
I loved this sweater when it was given me to play around with! It was oversized and comfortable but there were lots of areas of discoloration.
Because it was light beige, the spots were super pronounced.
You can see here on the neckline:
I went to my trusty bottle of Dark Green Rit Dye…
…and changed the color!
I’ve arrived to the wintry Colorado temperatures to spend some quality time with some of my favorite people. It feels amazing to have a little taste of the cold weather right now! I couldn’t have packed more sweaters and coats for this short trip, though. The amount of pieces that I fit into my check on bag…astonishing. A girls gotta be prepared, right?
These are just a few pieces that you’ll see over the next few days…
Loving this 80s dress with that aqua suede panel front and center. It’s like my Miss America sash!!
Yep, those are screen printed feathers.
This is one of those pieces where people were shaking their heads and saying to themselves, “does that girl know what she’s buying?”
Basic sweater with some not-so-basic discoloration. I have plans for this glorious oversized sweater that’s going to be perfect when paired with my snow boots!
I hope you all have safe travels these next few days! Let the winter wardrobe week begin!!
