You guys got a little teaser of today’s remake, yesterday. Oh just wait…there are more pics.
This housecoat had a lot going on.
The mix of patterns, the ric rac, the bow-like pockets.
I loved the color and saw this as a total challenge, so…
…I had to take it home. Those stripes, dots, and ric rac were counting on me.
Oh, I think you’re going to love the piece that I’m currently working on.
There’s some stripes going on, some polka dots going on, and some ric rac going on. It’s a fierce triple threat going on right now!!
Check back later today for the after look!!!
So today’s remake wasn’t originally a “remake” because it was in really great condition…so I thought. I went down to San Diego for the Chargers/Broncos game yesterday and toted this piece along with me to wear. I was in the company of Broncos fans, so I thought I’d cheer along with them in shades of orange. I borrowed a Denver Broncos t-shirt to don and thought this piece would complement it nicely. Who doesn’t love a little orange polka-dot business?
I was so excited to have a little cover up (for cooler temps and sun blockage issues) until I saw these.
HOLES!! There were a few on the back and one big one on the shoulder. I got this piece a few months ago and washed it right away, however I must have just missed these little suckers. Luckily for me, I always come prepared with some needles and thread in the purse. (I know, it’s nuts, however if you ever run into me and are having a wardrobe malfunction, guess who’s gonna get you out of it?? Needles, thread, safety pins, double stick tape…you need it, I got it!) So, I got stitching…
Today’s post is another fun one that I created just for HelloGiggles! The “As Seen on TV” copycat piece comes from “2 Broke Girls” this time around. I remade the fab Chanel necklace that Beth Behrs dons each week, as I’ve been obsessed with that piece since the show began.
With these supplies…
…and just a little elbow grease getting the pearls made and connected…
…I had a brand new necklace that really rivals the original piece!
I think I know what I’m making my mom for the holidays!
PS, keep me posted on any outfits that you adore from your favorite TV characters – I have a lovely list going with lots of your suggestions!
I received this lovely donation from Cathy in NC!!
The blue/black dress is one I loved forever, wore several times, lent to friends to wear, and still could not part with it. It is probably from the 80s (I can’t remember exactly because I’ve had it so long) and I especially love the low back on it and the handkerchief hem. I WISH I was still a size 8 to wear it – working on that! Please see what magic you can make of it and have fun!
Just take a look at this number! It’s got little beads of glitter all over the bodice and the arms.
“Where there is glitter, I’ll be there.” I mean the Jackson 5 could have totally wrote that as an alternative lyric! Time to bust a move.
