I’m in love with the idea of not buying any new clothes and just shopping my closet and refashioning. Out of necessity, we’ve had to cut back on our spending (I’m a teacher and my husband is a contractor) and I’ve been trying hard to spend as little money as possible. But I’m finding out it doesn’t have to be painful. It can actually be incredibly fun!
These are a few outfits I put together using things from my closet, a few thrifted finds and a couple of refashioned items.
I’ve had this skirt for quite a while but it didn’t quite fit right. The waist was too big so it would slide around as the day wore on. Needless to say, it wasn’t a go to piece in my wardrobe. The sweater was a thrifted item. I proceeded to alter the skirt and refashion the sweater to get a whole new outfit.
I wore this with some brown boots to my school’s Christmas program and “it cost NOTHIN”‘
Adorable…I love how you can make a simple sweater into a fashionable piece!
