THRIFTY THURSDAY: OOTD: 1/26/2012 Nip Tuck...


MORNING!!! This post BARELY made it! I was going to just skip Thrifty Thursday this week, but I really didn't want too! I'm so proud of my first hem...Crooked and all! LOL But I'm wearing it like it's perfect! The imperfect perfection!!

So I got this dress on my thrifting adventure with Tamika a few weeks ago. I love the print and the style... you know vintage! Ain't no stopping me now that I have my sewing machine!!! The tag says size 28 but now it fits me! This dress has been NIP TUCKED! <---Another new phrase!! lol


So you know she gave me the STANK FACE again! This time I was able to CAPTURE the moment!Then she said "A Moo-Moo?!?!?!" I was cracking up in this picture!! Can you tell?


TA-DAA!!!

Not perfect, but I'm pleased!   

I love the shoulder detail...

The back



I couldn't wait to share this with you guys! How did I do??? =)
continue to have a great week! CHEERS TO THE FREAKIN WEEKEND!!!


Keep Dreamin,

OOTN: Leopard Blue Jean Mix

Hope you all had a GREAT weekend! Supercharged for the week! Mine was ok, but I always hate to see Sunday leave...Saturday a Co-worker had a gathering at some unfamiliar place on the unfamiliar side of town. I was unsure how that atmosphere would be so I wanted to be cute but comfortable. I love tights and these leopards allow me to be comfortable but fashionable at the same time....


I got this blue jean corset top from Torrid almost a year ago but never had the chance to wear it...Ordinarily I would have worn red shoes but again I wanted to be comfortable. Didn't know if I would be standing or what not.
Tights-Ross
Corset- Torrid

 I did however break out my staple piece red leather waist jacket though...OKOKOK it's not real leather got this number from Simply Fashions last year for under $10.00!!
 My Earrings were a HIT! =)
One Day, this side profile will be perfect (in my eyes)

                             I will soon do a post on how versatile these pants are...I LOVE them!!!

The place was cool! It was what we call "The hole in wall..."  But I had a decent time! Even ran into my buddy Lesia! Her fashion sense is sick and twisted too! She Should totally Blog!!

Lesia and I

Thanks for reading!! Continue to have a great week!!

2 in 1: Earring Haul and Thirft and Greet!!! (Pic Heavy)

Happy Tuesday!!! Hi, my name is Louise and I am addicted to ALL THINGS GOLD!!! A few weeks ago A friend of a friend of a friend that worked with my sister forwarded her a new online jewelry website Persnickety Boutique to check out. My sister forwarded the information to me and I was in a trance for a while! I fell in love with a lot of the items on the site see below...





Cute Huh!! AND  they are affordable!! I soooooo placed my order as soon as I got home!! PLEASE go check them out!!  I support small businesses!!
These are one of the pairs that I bought....

Please excuse the hair!! I had just got finished with my hair! What do you think?
 I also picked these and the next two pairs up @ a local boutique! I love HUGE earrings and short hair!




 Today I met with Timeka from Plus Size Southern Lady  for a day of drinks and thrifting!! We had fun but we always do....




                             I was so sad that this dress didn't fit! In my head, I was already wearing it!!


I hope you guys had a great 3 day weekend!!! I've been tagged a few more times and will be answering the questions soon....

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,
