ReFashionista 2013!!!

First Ever Thrift Score Thursday!!!
Welcome 2013!!!!

Hello friends!  2013 is here!  As promised, I have a few changes in store that I hope you’ll find as exciting as I do!  🙂

First off, I’m adding a few regular weekly segments to my refashion lineup!

Q&A Mondays:  I get lots of emails with all sorts of questions from you guys.  I try to answer them all, but I got to thinking-There are a lot of you out there who have the same questions, so why not just address these on my blog?  Hit me up with your most pressing refashion/ecofashion quandaries, and you might see them answered right here!

Wannabe Wednesdays:  Have you ever seen a fab frock in a store and wondered if you could refashion a lookalike version for way less $$$?  Come visit ReFashionista every Wednesday for some Copycat Couture!

Thrift Score Thursdays:  I do a LOT of thrifting and find all sorts of awesome stuff that needs no help from my sewing machine.  Every Thursday I’ll be sharing my fave finds with you!

So yeah…That’s pretty sweet, but hold on a sec…it’s about to get even sweeter!

I’ve decided this blog has grown to be bigger than just being about me.  I want to represent ReFashionistas of all shapes and sizes, so I’m accepting Reader Submissions!  Just email me with your before and after pics, as well as an explanation of what you did to make your refash happen, and you could see your creation right here on ReFashionista!

I’m also partnering with some fab eco-fashion peeps to bring More Giveaways to you! Because winning stuff is pretty terrific!

You’re going to get all of this, plus a healthy dose of the regular ol’ refashions you’re used to!

2013 is gonna be awesome at!

Better get to work!  :)
Better get to work! 🙂

    I’m excited for the new additions this year! I’ve been refashioning like crazy this weekend. Thanks for all your tips/techniques! They’ve really come in handy.

    Any thought to putting handy tabs on top for the new changes (one for each: Q&A Mondays, Thrift Score Thursdays, and Reader Submissions) to keep them separate? That might help to search your site quicker. Just a thought.

    Thanks for all you do!!

    I’m in Chicago and I’ve been reading your blog for a while. It’s one of my favorites. Looking forward to more from you. Keep up the good work!!!

  • Dawn

    Sweet! I can’t wait to see all the new stuff. Just checked out the Thrifted boots. Awesome. If I get brave enough to refash something I will definitely share it .

  • Em

    EXCELLENT! (except for the ads, blergh – but you have a right to make some income from your super talent so I’ll forgive it!!)

  • Heather

    My birthday was a few days ago and my friend gave me a great gift! She looked online at the 2013 fashions and then went to the thrift store and bought me 3 pieces to play with based on those fashions! I’m excited to see what I can do with them and will for sure submit them to you. Love your blog!

  • Cindy

    I’m excited to see the Reader submissions. You’ve really inspired me. I haven’t done anything more than shorten some hems but I’ve been keeping my eye out for something to do a bigger rehaul to.

  • lonichol

    So happy to hear about the updates – have missed your daily posts (no pressure!) and this is almost as good 🙂 You are such a happy blogger, and I always click you first when I see a post from you in Bloglovin’ 🙂 xx Lori

  • Marina

    Awww yeah! I’ve totally been hoping you’d do some sort of reader’s refashion deal. I have some before and after pics of refashions I’ve done on some SD card somewhere…def have to send those whenever I locate ’em.

  • Lindsay Gaines

    I’m super excited about this and can’t wait to submit something! I’m particularly excited about the refashion couture. I have a question for your first round: Do you have suggestions/tips/resources you could direct me to for sewing with a dressform? Just got one for Christmas and want to start designing my own clothing.

    • ReFashionista

      Can’t believe I’m only just now seeing this…sorry. 🙁 I’m glad you’re excited about 2013…I am too! Honestly, I just Google it and consult the manual. 🙂 Congrats on the dress form. You’re gonna love it!

  • Tracey

    Wow Jillian! These new changes sound amazing for us lucky followers, and lots of work for you! Thank you for entertaining and inspiring me, and many others, with your blog. I’ve read you for month’s now (found you through Grist) and thought I should finally give you the kudos you deserve. Wishing you continued success in 2013.

  • Kate

    Yay! happy new year to you and thanks for the updates for 2013 – very welcome as I am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to the ACTUAL refashioning… thanks to you I have a MILLION ideas but the guts to chop stuff isn’t quite there! Changes are good!

  • Ashley

    I bought a dress before Christmas that I am planning on Refashioning! I will send you my pics when I am done! Excited to see more posts!
