You may recall that one of my New Year’s Resolutions for 2014 was not to spend a dime on new clothing. The ONLY clothes covering this body are articles I’ve refashioned for .99 cents or less.
If Hubs decides to splurge on yours truly, well, there’s really nothing I can do about that, is there? …Like getting me these sweet new Chucks!
Love 🙂 Most of the stuff in my wardrobe doesn’t really reflect the “style” of Chucks… I mean, really, there’s a style that has to go with these. I almost think they’re too cool for me but I did my best to give justice to their coolness.
I started with this:
I received this “Smoke Free Class of 2000” Tshirt when I was in Kindergarten! Seriously. I WISH I had a picture of me rocking this out at the tender age of 6. Sad thing is, I remember the day my classmates and I all received these tshirts. I remember the “play” we put on to affirm our commitment to being a smoke-free class by our graduation in 2000. 2000 seemed so far away at the time… Now, it’s so far away on the opposite end of the spectrum. Ain’t life a kick in the head?
I don’t know WHY I kept this tshirt but I’m glad I did. I’m even MORE excited I could actually WEAR it! It’s a bit snug though, let’s just say it.
I decided to add a panel in to the sides of the tshirt to give me a little extra room.
I cut the sides of my yellow tshirt, pinned the new black panels in, and sewed them down.
Behold the new side panel:
It’s ever so slightly more roomy now 🙂
I also cut off the sleeves and the band around the neck.
Does that jacket look familiar to anyone? It was one of my very first refashions! I gave it another dye bath a while ago to spice up the color a bit. It’s funky. I dig it 🙂
As for my resolution to only have ONE coffee drink (black coffee in the morning doesn’t count!) a week from Starbucks or Main St. Cafe….
Well, I digress. Don’t judge me… I can stop ANY TIME!
Iced Nutella Latte, how do I love thee!
I didn’t have to go in to Job #2 after work, so I got a little cray cray with my color palette. I definitely felt like a Kindergartener again… a stylin’ 31 year old Kindergartener 😉
