When fellow Columbia blogger, Haley Sprankle created a Kylie Jenner-esque denim dress ensemble with a thrifted men’s denim shirt and challenged others to do the same, I decided to hop on board.
I couldn’t care less about Kylie Jenner and her ilk if I tried, but even I had to admit this was a really cool look, and I wanted a comfy denim dress of my very own.
I also haven’t sewn a frock in a while and was craving something fun and new. :)
I ran to the thrift store and found this large men’s shirt for $1. I was kind of hoping I could do what Haley did, and just wear it as-is. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.

Whew! What a crazy few weeks it’s been! I’m happy to report that I’m all moved out from my old apartment (yippee!) and all moved in to my new house (huzzah!)! I have some pics of my new digs further down in this post, but I know what you’re really here for…a refashion of course! :)

I’ve also been working on some pretty awesome home décor projects that I’ll be revealing when they’re in their proper home. :)
Okay…back to the refashion! Continue Reading
I simply could not believe my luck when I found these jeans in exactly my size at the $1-a-pound Goodwill Clearance Center!
Not too shabs…buuuut…
I was relieved when the friendly-ish clerk at one of my favorite thrift stores only charged me for one piece, rather than 3 when I purchased this…outfit.
3 easy pieces!
I LOVE that print! But I HATE this outfit. However, I was excited to have a good bit of fabric to work with between the skirt, shirt, and sash.
And I couldn’t help but giggle a little at the label: Continue Reading
