Amber’s NDAD Creation

Mar 15, 2014 | 9 Comments

My girl Amber submitted a piece a while back (refresher HERE!) and I have to say that I’m obsessed with what she does. Her before looks are totally on par with mine as well, which cracks me up! I love the “let’s give sour face when we’re wearing something not so pleasant” move. It’s my go-to when I’m shooting the before looks – I live for the sour face and she totally nails it. Also, her recreations have been über chic. See what she’s up to today!!

My roommate was cleaning out her closet and was tossing this shirt, so I got it for free! Obviously it doesn’t fit my bust region, so I’m going to turn it into a skirt!

Olive’s NDAD Creation

I just love this dress that Olive repurposed – the before look is fantastic and what makes it even more special is that it was a dress that her mother had purchased years ago. It’s Olive’s turn now to work some magic!

Hello from New Zealand! I discovered your blog a few days before the start of my first ever uni exams, and it provided a fantastic distraction from study. It also gave me something to look forward to after exams, so as soon as I was on holiday I headed to our basement to see if I could find anything with potential. The dress I found is one that my mum bought in Paris with my dad when they were newly married.

Olive – Before

Even when she stopped wearing it, she kept it in the hopes that one day her daughter might make it into something else. This made it the perfect dress for me! 

Time to see what the second generation does with this dress!
