Thrifting Tuesdays – Belated Birthday
We have now had 12+ hours of non-stop rain and thunderstorms. It’s dark, dreary and wet outside.
The perfect antidote: bright, happy thrifted clothes :)
Remember when I bought these for my sister’s birthday?
Well I am
sad embarrassed to say that I am just now (1 month late) sending them to her… (sorry Nomers!)
I went ahead and tried them on… just to give her an idea of what I did with them.
Can’t wait to see how she wears them!
kinda frumpy, but I loved the bold stripes!
I hemmed the skirt, did nothing to the shirt.

And you can even wear them together now!
hubs even took a break from his prison snack (rice cake & water!) to show appreciation for this one ;)
BEFORE: (house slippers and compression stockings?! yes indeed, you now know my deepest, darkest secret :)
I hemmed the skirt, ripped off the collar and used grey bias tape in its place.
DRESS thrifted/ BELT TheLimited/ SHOES $9.99shoestore
too old-timey schoolmarm for you?
Get rid of the bun, grab some modern accessories, your highest chunkiest heels and roll up those sleeves!
Voila! Modern SchoolMarm!
Decent enough to wear to church or to instruct young minds, but still hip enough to hang out with and not embarrass your 20-something friends
I rarely buy pink, but the pattern was so lovely!
Kept it simple, letting the shirt shine!
and since this one’s for the birds, aren’t these cute? they came in a 3 pk for $4.99 at Target!
Happy Birthday Nomers!! I hope you enjoy them!! Love you!
