I know, I know. Many people scoff at Valentine’s Day. It wasn’t that long ago that I referred to it as “Singles Awareness Day” myself. It’s a Hallmark Holiday that was designed to make people buy stuff, right?
For 2020, one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to try to refashion items from my wardrobe that I’m tired of before donating them to the thrift store.
As any salesperson at my local Anthropologie could probably tell you, I visit frequently, but never actually buy anything. Anthropologie stores are just so….freaking pretty.
When fellow Columbia blogger, Haley Sprankle created a Kylie Jenner-esque denim dress ensemble with a thrifted men’s denim shirt and challenged others to do the same, I decided to hop on board.
I couldn’t care less about Kylie Jenner and her ilk if I tried, but even I had to admit this was a really cool look, and I wanted a comfy denim dress of my very own.
I also haven’t sewn a frock in a while and was craving something fun and new. 🙂
I ran to the thrift store and found this large men’s shirt for $1. I was kind of hoping I could do what Haley did, and just wear it as-is. Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.
