One Dress, Three Ways II: No-Sew Dress to High Low Top Refashion

One Dress, Three Ways III: A Dress to Skirt Refashion
One Dress, Three Ways: No-Sew One Sleeve Dress Refashion

Wow.  You guys are terrible guessers.  😉

Nope…still haven’t found my house yet (I’m looking!  I’m looking!).

Nope…Mark and I are not engaged (We’ve only been dating since October…geez! 😉 )

I can’t believe NO ONE guessed my news!

As a lot of you know, I love writing.  I love writing this blog, as well as all my freelance work.  The hardest thing for me over the last couple of years was feeling like this would always be just a part-time gig, and that I’d never get to be creative in my work life…ever.  Last week, a good friend of mine said it perfectly over after-work drinks:

“You’re doing your best work outside of work.”

And that’s been true for a very long time.

But it’s not true anymore.

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve been invited by a local advertising firm to join their Inbound Marketing Team as their Digital Marketing Specialist!

This means that I’ll be writing awesome & compelling content for their clients, as well as helping with their social media management needs. It’s a terrific company with a stellar reputation and I can’t wait to start this new phase in my career with them!

But what about the Refashion?

Most of you guys seemed to dig yesterday’s no-sew fancy frock.

Remember me?

But for Refashion #2, I wanted something simple & casual to kick around in.

I grabbed my scissors and made one big cut from front to back on my dress, like so:

Snnnnnip!

And that’s it!  This one is a no-sew refashion too!

Well hi there Cole and Ryan!

Did you notice my sweet necklace?  I thrifted it for $2!  I almost left it at the store, as thought it was too big, but I’ve been getting nothing but compliments on it!  🙂

I dig it!

So…YAY!  Fun life news, and two refashions from ONE dress!

Stay tuned for the thrilling conclusion of…One Dress, Three Ways!

Cheers!
