Shopping my closet and a few refashions

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”‘
