A No-Sew Coffee Date Dress-to-Top Refashion
Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion

Today’s outfit is mix of old and new (to me, anyways)!


I’m going for a late-50’s vibe today, friends!

The navy sweater is vintage Laura Gayle, and was thrifted for $1. Even though it’s acryllic, it’s incredibly soft, and I just love the zip-up back!

Thanks for the comfy sweater, Laura!

That gorgeous flower brooch was my grandmother’s, along with my navy & white polka dot head scarf.

Those faux leather/lizard skin patterned pants are the priciest part of my ensemble, coming in at a whopping $25.


When a coworker of mine was getting ready to consign several pairs of jeans and pants (all high-end boutique brands) online, I bought a couple of pairs. While I’m not a size 10, I was able to take these in really easily. I promise to show you a tutorial on this soon! They’re surprisingly versatile, and I’ve already worn them several times, so I think I’ll end up getting my money’s worth.

A closer look!
