I wore every dress/skirt that I owned except one (it doesn’t fit). I had so much fun with this!! I did not have the time to spend on it as I would have liked. I wanted to use this challenge to be a little more creative with my dress. I didn’t realize that I owned as many dresses/skirts that I do. Thanks SJ for allowing me to participate!!
Ok I am finally getting a chance to update my part. I can’t believe that I actually let 11 dresses go without being posted. Bear with me…
Thrifted Ann Loft pencil skirt (denim)
Faded Glory tank from Wal-Mart
Shrug from VF Outlet
WOW!! Life has been crazy busy the last few days. So I have to post Day 13-18 together.
Already wore this skirt once during this challenge. It is thrifted. The shirt is from Old Navy (this season).
I had to work graduation this morning, so I wanted to dress up. This dress was my Easter dress from two years ago. It also has a matching cardigan, but I didn’t get a picture of me wearing it. I think I bought it at Sears.
This is this year’s Easter dress. The dress is Old Navy, and the cardigan is Target. I am beginning to see a trend here. I only shop at three places – Old Navy, Target, and the thrift stores.
Another dress from Target (last year). And look SJ – it has pockets!
The skirt was part of an Easter outfit from about 5 years ago. And it still fits!! The shirt is a recent purchase from Wal-Mart. And the shrug is from Ross. I actually already wore the shrug during the challenge.
This is my college graduation dress from 2008. I bought it at Beall’s. There is a story behind this dress. Two months before graduation, I signed up for the Wardrobe Refashion challenge. The challenge is you pledge for a set amount of months to not buy anything new. You can buy second-hand, and you can make something new. I decided to make my graduation dress. I picked out the pattern and already had the fabric. I thought I can do this. I only have finals and work. I can do it – WRONG!! Epic fail. I had everything in the book go wrong with this dress. So three days before graduation, I had to run out and buy a dress (because I had to have something new).
I bought this dress from – SURPRISE – Target about 4-5 years ago. I love the fact that I can dress it up or down depending on my accessories.
Today, I choose to wear a handmade necklace with PINK turquiose stones. I bought the necklace from a local business here. Another thing I love – buying local!! I found the bracelets in the bottom of my jewelry box. I completely forgot that I owned these. I really need to get organized.
Oh and if anyone wants to read up on the history of the shirtwaist, check this out.
