I got a fabulous email from my gal Josie and loved what she sent my way... "Inspired by your blog, I bought a cheap sewing machine the day after I first read it (through Yahoo news). Almost a year later, I can proudly say I haven't bought any new clothes - I just take my mom's oldies but goodies, or incredibly cheap stuff from thrift shops (even 'shopping in my closet' for clothes I don't wear anymore and thus have freedom to alter). This is a very big deal, as I'm a graduate student with not much money but a huge penchant for unique clothing; this is probably the kindest I've ever been to my credit cards in a long time.
Anyway, I had the confidence to apply to the New School's Recycled Runway fashion show; mostly Parson's students were designers, but I had new-found confidence that I could do just as well as any fashion student.
You go girl!! Here is Josie's before...
Yikes, stripes, fruit stripes gum!!
Here is the after pic of one of the dresses I entered (even using some famous 'Marisa' tricks).
I can proudly say that they 'walked down the runway' on April 17. Hope you like :)"
Me like, me like!! Way to go - chic and sassy and I'm so proud of you lady!!
