Thrifty Thursday: THRIFT FLIP Flip this Dress edition!


So... YALL should've seen the look on my sister's face when I brought this dress home!! lol I was extra excited as I always am, and then she hit me with the WTH Stank face! You know the O_o. But looks like these motivate me! At the time I hadn't quite figured out what I wanted to do with the dress... But with thrifting you can't look at the items for face value! I always try to see what I can make it into!





Before

(Lost Focus)
  So I brought the pinkish color in the dress to the forefront by adding the pink tights...
I just started sewing so I haven't  altered the dress yet but I pinned it on the sides to make it shorter...
After
   Added my Accessories ( belt, necklace, earrings and shoes)
                Converted this dress into successful THRIFT FLIP!!!<--- Just made this term up!  lol

Dress Thrifted
SweaterTights: JC Penny
Belt: Ashley Stewart
Necklace- Thrifted



    I think it's cute! What do you think? Are there any items that you would/have thrift flip (ped)?

Have a great weekend!

Keep Dreamin,

E. Louise

Ok Louise this is AWESOME!!!! You could wear it in the warmer weather without the tights and in the colder weather with a blazer or chunky sweater...girl you did this RIGHT! BTW you need to copyright "Thrift Flip" I love it :)

You really made that dress look cute!!

That's what I love about thrifting, you can find all kinds of treasures that may not look like much on the hanger but once you get it home and alter or dress them up they turn out fab!!!

I love you styles. It reminds me of myself 10 years ago. My husband loved my unique thrifty twist on styles. I didn't see myself so stylish with extra curves but you have shown me just how wrong I was. I will be at the thrift store first thing in the morning getting my thrifty-fashion-groove back! Thanks for the inspiration.
