Denim Mini Refashion – Washed out to Wonderful!

We are so delighted with today’s refashion!  It’s simply scrumptious!  But we’re getting ahead of ourselves here, so we’ll back up to the beginning.  We started with a denim mini by Hartstrings.  We picked it up at Goodwill on back to school sale week in the kids department, so ended up paying all of $1!Continue reading “Denim Mini Refashion – Washed out to Wonderful!”

Beaded White Skirt – Scary to Sweet!

For today’s refashion, we started with a denim mini!  After yesterday’s post we were itching to create using another denim mini!  This little cutie was just perfect for Aria because the waist was adjustable, you know those waistbands that include buttons and elastic?  Well, she loves those, because of her little skinny waist.  We pickedContinue reading “Beaded White Skirt – Scary to Sweet!”

Ann Taylor Embroidered Skirt – Lost to Luxurious!

On this skirt remake, I started with a short black Twenty One mini skirt I found at the thrift store St. Vincent for $2.50.  It was in great shape, and a great foundation for what I had in mind! On the same trip to St. Vincent I found a pink Ann Taylor skirt for $2.Continue reading “Ann Taylor Embroidered Skirt – Lost to Luxurious!”

Brown Floral Skirt – Lackluster to Linen Loveliness!

On this skirt remake, I started with two pieces with potential that just weren’t cutting it yet. The first was a tan corduroy mini skirt. I don’t like that length, so the miniskirt wasn’t working.  Cost $2.50 at a thrift store. The second was a knee length brown floral skirt – a linen piece withContinue reading “Brown Floral Skirt – Lackluster to Linen Loveliness!”

Old Navy blue linen skirt – Alright to Awesome!

For today’s skirt refashion we started with 2 great skirts we thought we could improve on!  First skirt, a linen Old Navy number. It was just alright!  It was a tad too big, and there was some cute embroidery around the bottom, which wasn’t working for Aria, but we are saving it for another refashion! Continue reading “Old Navy blue linen skirt – Alright to Awesome!”

Mossimo Supply Co. Skirt Remake – Flat to Fabulous

On this skirt remake, I started with a ‘Mossimo Supply Co.’ skirt in brown, tan, and white. There were two big pockets, which I totally LOVED, but they kind of got lost in the skirt and the decorative ties for the pockets were major BLAH!!! The ties were made of some kind of cloth fabrickyContinue reading “Mossimo Supply Co. Skirt Remake – Flat to Fabulous”

Aqua Blue Skirt Remake – Languid to Lovely

Today we started with two skirts and combined them to make an awesome fashion statement.  The first skirt was a khaki mini skirt with rear zip pockets.  Nothing really wrong with it, except it was just a tad too loose in the waist.  We picked it up at a second hand store for $2.00. OurContinue reading “Aqua Blue Skirt Remake – Languid to Lovely”
