I’ve been playing around with a bunch of fun pieces that you’ll see over the next few days!!
This one looks like something that I would have worn when I was six as my nightgown. This is like the grown-up, adult version! PS, it’s velour!!!
This one feels like I should be in Annie. You know, if Annie gets remade again and it’s all adults playing the orphaned kids?
And this might be the piéce de resistance. HELLO, too big jumpsuit!!! The before shots that go along with this one are AMAZING. Just you wait…
All coming soon to a screen near you!! Stay tuned
There’s nothing more uncomfortable than a tight neck!
I feel like I get neck-claustrophobia (yeah, that’s a word I just made up) when I wear things like this. The color was fab…
…but the dress needed a little more something added to it, you know?
Plus there were some major shoulder pads that needed to get removed.
I should stuff new pillows with all of the pads that I’ve accumulated Ready to see how this dress looks now??
I’ve unearthed a few of my boxes labeled vintage (yay!!!) and it was like Christmas all over again as I began to unpack. I’m only one extra-large Home Depot box in, and already it’s a season’s worth of remakes.
It’s also solidifying the fact that my memory isn’t serving me as well as it used to because a half of the pieces I don’t even recall purchasing Is there such a thing as “moving brain?” Because if so, I’m self-diagnosing myself with just that.
Didn’t remember this cute top…
Same goes with this 60s dress with an amazingly sick collar!! (Love me some collars.)
Totally forgot about this aqua dress…
…as well as this French polyester shirt with “bonbons” and “Paris” written all over it. Definitely not sure what my original intention was for this one, but I’m determined to make it work!
I shot a bunch of pieces before I moved, so the before looks are pretty much ready to go. Tomorrow, I’m going to turn this dress into something a little more updated!
And preferably something with some more room at the neck!
Those shoulder pads are going to get removed as well…
Hello everyone! Apologies for the lack of posts this past week – my impending move has me working overtime! It’s a go to work, get home at 7pm, and pack routine before crashing a few hours later. The next two weeks are going to be crazy/fun/exhausting/cathartic as I get everything I want to hold onto boxed up and the rest of the things off to Goodwill.
My new place has bookshelves in the walls, so I’m excited to have a place for all of my books! I did put a stash together to donate, though. Do I really need two copies of the first Harry Potter book? (It was a toss up, but…no.)
I found this new style of bracelet the best for holding onto tape without losing it or forgetting where I put it.
I’m certain that a roll got put into a box
Like my new chair??
I’m taking my break moments where I can get them! More to come and you’ll be seeing a bunch of your own creations getting posted while I’m working away.
Anyone have any great packing tips?? I’ll take whatever I can get!! xo
I love it when this happens.
Yeah, I’m talking about when that dress just won’t fit. In this case, I couldn’t get one of my arms into the sleeve nor button up the top portion of the dress.
This just wasn’t going to work…
Time to make this something wearable!
