I really loved the print of this muumuu.
The floral print at the bottom was my favorite part, so I started to think about ways to upcycle this into something wearable!
While wearing the piece and looking at all the seams, I knew exactly how I was going to upcycle this!
Time to get out the seam ripper!
Today’s rewind outfit comes from a little over two years ago! This white and blue floral dress was one of the pieces that I shot as an option for my book, hence the full make-up in the before shot!

I scrapped the sleeves and took it in to make it a dress perfect for summer.
For my second wear, I went a totally different route!
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???
