Learn how to upcycle clothes with the REFASHIONISTA! DIY your way to a better wardrobe starting today!
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. I almost refashioned it last year, but got caught up in the hustle, bustle, and (let’s be honest) procrastination of the season and it never happened. …Until now!
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.
The other day, I asked the following question on the ReFashionista Facebook page: Over 450 of you were kind enough to weigh in, and the 1970’s beige maternity dress on the left was the winner!
