Has anyone else noticed a sudden influx of indigo and white patterns in winter fashion this year? While I rarely (as in extremely rarely) ever buy anything new, I still keep an eye out for general trends (even if I usually choose to ignore them).
Happy Christmas Eve, errrrybody! 😀 When I needed a festive frock to wear to my supper club’s annual White Elephant gift exchange, I went for this one that has been languishing on my refashion rack for over a year.
Hello fellow travelers. I’ve returned! 🙂 I’ve been revamping a few things around the old blog, and I hope you dig the changes I’ve made. You’ll notice I’ve changed my tagline from, Change the way you think about fashion. to Creating now. So what’s that about, eh? When I first started this blog years ago, it was an outlet for my creativity which was pretty much relegated to refashioning $1 thrift store finds. But that was more than half a decade ago. Since then, I’ve grown and evolved as a person and a creative. Lots of things excite and inspire me nowadays. I don’t want to just do refashions anymore,…
Once a year, Riggs Partners (the advertising agency I do cool digital things for) has a CreateAthon. You probably don’t know what that is. It’s okay. I didn’t either until I started working for them. A CreateAthon is a 24-hour no-sleep pro-bono marketing blitz wherein we provide our services (and the services of a few other talented folks around town) to local nonprofits. What started as a small project at Riggs has become a worldwide movement. When it came time to order shirts for our recent CreateAthon, I asked for a 3x. “You’re going to do something cool with this, aren’t you?” asked my coworker. Well…of course I was.
Oh hai fall, I didn’t know it was you! I am deeply and profoundly excited about our (admittedly slight) change in temperature here in SC. Usually I get a little down as cold weather approaches, but not this year. 🙂 I’m ready for stews, tea and nights curled up with a book by my fireplace. I even decorated! I’m also excited about a certain 90’s trend that’s making a comeback this year: Fall Florals! You can read my recent Good Life Blog post about super-thriftable Fall 2016 trends here. When I saw this frock on my refashion rack, my gears began to turn.
