Little Miss Weird...

I love doing weird things with my clothes...

Like taking things that don't fit and turning them into something highly doable.

These pants, for instance...


Were found in my sisters 'my trash is your treasure' bag. She was throwing these babies away. I loved the light denim wash and the soft texture of them so I fetched them out and decided that I would keep them. Then, I looked at the size....10. Nevermind that I'm easily a size 4, I figured I would take them anyway. So I cuffed them at the bottom....And in an instant, they became:


Tank-Target/Oversized Jeans-Gifted/Belt&Pumps-Thrifted

My favorite pair of boyfriend jeans.
What I love most about them is that the bagginess makes them appear really hippie-esque.

YES!!!

 Just the look I was going for. Now all I need is a turban. Ohhhh....and these lovely thrifted brown pumps


They make me die!

 What types of 'weird' things do you do
 to your clothes to make them fit?

  2. I just had my mom take in 2 midi pleated skirts for me... One was a 3X and one was a size 16... However, both were from the thrift store and were 40 cents each, so I figured even if she couldnt alter them, the fabric alone was worth more than 40 cents! So all she had to do was add new elastic wasitbands to each of them and it dramatically took them in! Wore one yesterday and got TONS of compliments! SUCCESS!!

  4. It's sooo fun to refashion things that people no longer want! I love seeing the faces of the people who gave the stuff away when they see what you've done with their 'trashed' items!!

  6. See that's amazing. I would buy lots more stuff from the thrift store if only I had the time to alter them. You're right though, 40 cents is a steal...even if you only use the fabric to make something else. It will never be that cheap in a fabric store!!
