    Wannabe Wednesday: Z Edition

    First off… WOW. Can I just say that again? WOW. One more time. WOW. In case you missed it, this little blog has gone viral…and not in that “Please don’t sneeze on me.” kinda way.  From Tumblr to Imgur to countless awesome other pages to Reddit and Buzzfeed, the world is digging eco fashion in a major way!  🙂 Thank you to everyone who has been sharing this blog over the years.  I got a little misty eyed when I saw all the new “likes”, followers, and comments (Well…at least those that weren’t calling me fugly scum anywho).  Seriously.  THANK YOU.  🙂  I’m sending you all virtual hugs right now.…

    Wannabe Wednesday: Midnight Tide Edition

    I love ModCloth!  I rarely order anything from them (I think I ordered a pair of shoes once), but I get tons of refashion inspiration from their lovely vintage-inspired dresses. Take this gorgeous little number, their Midnight Tide Dress: Alhtough I’m not Seated around a beach bonfire in this jersey-knit maxi, singing along to your pal’s guitar strumming as the moon shines above. Blah Blah Blah Blather Blather Blather… as the overly twee description of this frock suggests (I’m not making this up), I still want this dress! Sadly, all I had was this: Luckily, all this dress needed was a couple of chops and a teensy bit of stitchery!  …

    Wannabe Wednesday: Michelle Mason(ish) Edition

    I hate being cold. I hate being cold more than anything else in the world. It’s been very cold here in South Carolina.  :/ When I moved to the south I expected year-round warmth and sunshine (research has never been my thing), creamy grits to be served with every meal, and men with impeccable manners. I feel ripped off on two of these counts. My quest for warmth during this odd cold snap has led to me a life spent in wool socks and bulky sweaters. But today I had to branch out! I was inspired by this dress by Michelle Mason: Doesn’t that look cozy?  Unfortunately, the closest thing…

    Wannabe Wednesday: Johnny Was Edition

    Brrrrrrr!  This winter has been ridiculously over-the-top cold here in SC!  When we finally got a bit of snow for the first time in three years, I knew I wanted something comfy and cozy to lounge around in for a Snow Day with friends.  🙂 I wished I had something like one of these lovely tunics by Johnny Was: Sadly, the closest thing I had in my refash stash was this: That red is great, the beaded neckline is gorgeous, and I loved the pintucks/pleats on the front of this piece.  All those details are very similar to the boho details of the Johnny Was tunics, but it wasn’t quite…

    Wannabe Wednesday: Ressica Edition

    Hello!  As you can see there are some big changes happening here at ReFashionista!  I have a few more tweaks to make to the new site, so just bear with me for a few more days, okay?  🙂 But in the meantime, Let’s get to Wannabe Wednesday, shall we? I was inspired by the Ressica Tunic from Anthropologie.   Little Miss Blonde & Limbsome’s top is all sorts of Boho awesomeness, but could I make a similar top from this $1 thrifted dress?   To get started, I removed some paddage! Then, I chopped of the sleeves a bit.   I threw this pleated nightmare on my dress form and…
