ReFashionista: Year 2!

Day 1: Sunny and Sheer
My Drapey Halter Top

Oh my!  My little blog is about to turn one year old!  I’ve had a blast sharing my refashions with you guys, and have learned a good bit along the way.  Thanks for following my adventures in DIY Fashion.  :)

This brings us to (drum roll please!)…

ReFashionista: Year 2!

It all begins July 1st.

For one year, I’ll be wearing your rejected rejects…clothing that was donated, but too damaged to sell, and destined for the landfill.  The lovely folks at Revente’s Last Call, Revente, and Sid & Nancy have been kind enough to donate their damaged stuff to make my wardrobe for a year.

That’s right…I will be remaking something new every day for one year.

It doesn’t end there, folks.  I’ll be donating everything I remake to Revente’s Last Call, where all profits go to the Women’s Shelter.

Did I mention I’m getting married this year?  Taking this pledge means that I will be making my own wedding dress out of donated and damaged materials, and selling it for charity when I’m done.  Wowza.

In a nutshell:

*Yay!  I’m helping keep clothing out of the landfill!

*Yay!  I’m helping women in need!

*Yay!  I’m using my creativity to do something more than a little nutty!

I really hope I’m clever enough for this.  :)

Year 2: It’s gonna be awesome!

  1. What an AWESOME idea! If anyone can rock this challenge, it’s YOU! Can’t wait to see all the great ideas and inspiration you provide! Fabulous!!

  2. If anyone is creative enough to do this,you are. I’ve been following you for just a short time, but you amaze me with the stuff you create.

  3. I’ve been following your blog almost since its inception. I think you’ve got an eye for design, a great sense of color. Now that you have the dress form I feel that you will really branch out in your refashions. This self-imposed challenge will spark your creativity even more so. Go for the gusto! You can do it :-)

  4. First of all, Congratulations! Secondly, Bless you for all the good that will be coming out of your remakes. I so enjoy seeing what you do with what would otherwise end up in a landfill!

  5. Wow! I’m a bit behind on your blog and then I come back to this… stunning news! Fabulous stuff and you are more than capable. I love the stuff you come up with.
    I’ll be watching closely, this is a fantastic idea!

  6. Absolutely fantastic idea, too many people throw out clothes nowadays as a normal thing, clothes aren’t made to last as well as before but still, they can a lot more wear out of them than they get.

  7. I just love following your blog. Just for fun maybe you could have a “upload your photos” button so your followers could show off their creations. Just a thought.
