My First Re-Fashion Post!

DSCN5674

I decided to do my first refashion post! In case you don’t know, refashioning is when you take an item of clothing and give it a new life. I decided to take a bright orange turtleneck sweater and turn it into a skirt!

I should have taken a before picture, but oh well. Basically, I cut off the sleeves, and sewed down the sides to make the skirt a little narrower. 🙂 It was a pretty simple change, and I think it turned out well!

My Outfit Deconstructed:

  • Gray Sweater -Thrifted, Part of $1 Bag (George, Walmart)
  • Orange Turtleneck Turned Into Skirt -Thrifted, Part of $1 Bag (Maurices)
  • Brown Leather Boots -$8, Thrifted
  • Teal Tights -$2, Icing
  • Pearls – $3, Thrifted  (I’ve had these pearls for forever… they’ve featured in several blog posts. 🙂 )

Ben and I went to Orange Leaf, a frozen yogurt place for date night. I was very amused to find out that my skirt matched the restaurant. I should have taken a picture of Ben and me while we were there, but we were too busy enjoying our frozen yogurt. I got pistachio and blackberry! But here’s how the general set up looks. Don’t I match? 🙂
