Day 94. 271 days and $267 left to go.

It's hard to have any other words beside gross to describe this one. Day 94 - Before

Now, the color was pretty bad. Not one of my favorites, that's for sure. It definitely looked like I was ready to host a tour of the Jungle Cruise at Disneyland. All I needed was a pith helmet and some cheesy jokes. "Hello, everyone. I'd like to welcome you aboard the world-famous Jungle Cruise. My name is Marisa and I'll be your skipper for as far as we get." Ba, dum, bump, chhhhh

I definitely thought the safari could be rocked in a chic-er way than the original, as found, condition. What was needed was some hiking up and taking in of the sleeves and body.

Stitchy Sleeve!

After the taking in was done, I cut off the excess fabric from the arms and body and trimmed the dress to hit me above my knees. There were also shoulder pads (yes, they're back!!!) that needed to be taken off, but I thought I'd save you from more imagery. Next time, however, it's on! I took my new dress and unbuttoned the top so I could add a fun aqua tank underneath. I love the turquoise/brown combo, so my tank was the perfect addition. There were also belt loops with no belt, so I grabbed my copper one from the Targe, added some silver bangles along with a vintage beaded necklace that I turned into a bracelet and we were good to go.

Day 94 - After

In my newly revived safari gear, I shot a pic next to a bush of some Birds of Paradise as it made me think of the tropics and not mid-city Los Angeles. And, clearly I had to channel my inner Bindi Irwin...

Jungle Boogie!

So did someone else this evening...

Ellen's Jungle Boogie-ing too!

Clearly me and Ellen were thinking the same thing when we got dressed this am.
