Upcoming Outfits!

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?

Remake: Vintage Purple Pleated Dress

Feb 19, 2015 | 20 Comments

There’s nothing more uncomfortable than a tight neck!

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…

Make me more fun!

…but the dress needed a little more something added to it, you know?

Hey, now!

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??

Boxes O’Vintage & Purple Satin Dress Teaser

Feb 17, 2015 | 3 Comments

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…

Perfect summer top!

Same goes with this 60s dress with an amazingly sick collar!! (Love me some collars.)

Dye job on the horizon for this one?? What are your thoughts???

Totally forgot about this aqua dress…

Love that applique!

…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!

Oui Oui!

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!

Tight neck!

And preferably something with some more room at the neck!

Those shoulder pads are going to get removed as well…

Packing Update!

Jan 19, 2015 | 18 Comments

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.

Box O’Books!

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.

Arm party!!

I’m certain that a roll got put into a box :)

Like my new chair??

Break time!

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

Corduroy Collared Dress

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…

My arm just won’t make it in!
