Thrifty Thursday: Thrift Flip Blue Jean Dress Edition


Good Morning!!  Happy Thrifty Thursday!!

This Summer I have been completely obsessed with all things blue jean De-stressed blue jean! I thrifted this dress a few months ago, waiting for the time to RIP it to shreds! Circle skirts/dresses, will be around for a while, and the thinking/recreating wheels begin to turn! 


 
 It's a size 14 no stretch so it took a lil less than an act of congress to get in it! (I'm not a 14... YET! LOL) So I opened the sides to give my Boobies some room and Took some length off the bottom.

Next I wanted it to be a scoop neck or to fall off or the shoulders a bit so I recreated the neck line, by making it wider. 

Then, I used the ole trusty Clorox and let the bleach land where ever it may!


This was  End Result !
Dress and Belt Thrifted 
Shoes: Citi Trends
Ankle Wrap: CVS ( I was really clumsy with some shears!) 

Me and My Mommie! She was editing our "Usies"!  LOL I can't take her serious!

*Purple kisses*


Hope you had a great week so far!

Alabama International Fashion Week: High concentrated, non-watered down, RAW talent


Happy Monday to ya!!

 I had the pleasure of covering Alabama International Fashion Week this weekend! It's the first year for the event and I would say the 1st of many! Below is what I wore....

Of Course it's thrifted! $2.99 find from a local thrift shop here! But the color alone screamed BUY MEEEE!!!  




I've been looking for dresses/skirts that have a split or a place where I can add one. This dress had both! The original split wasn't as high so I cut it a bit!

I added my chain belt (yes, I found it) and my new favorite, comfy shoes! I would have worn my leopard print but I wasn't sure how much walking/standing I'd actually be doing, so comfort won!


But enough about me! Let's get to the designers! There were five on Saturday night: 


I appreciated everyone's are on the runway, but there were a few that stood out to me! There lines included Vibrant, Original, Everyday wear pieces! I found myself screaming YASSSSSSSS! A good part of the night! So glad to be exposed to more of the talent pool that  Birmingham has to offer! There is nothing like High concentrated, non-watered down, RAW talent! I love!  Below are just a few of my favorite pieces! I'll definitely be inviting these designers to be apart of LIVE.LOVE.STRUT 2015.
