As my body size continues to shrink (the only benefit thus far of having severe gluten & lactose intolerance) my funktastic re-created wardrobe is requiring further adjustments…
Those fab bleached, dyed & embroidered Dandy Denims from last summer could now be pulled on while fastened & slid right off without a belt so it was definitely time to pair them with Cristina’s imaginative In the Mood for Couture jean makeover+ an addition or two of my own :
*My version of this top has wide 3/4 sleeves & can be worn back to front or front to back. I also removed the back pockets, flipped them around & reattached ‘em to once again be used for toting bits n’ bobs (& so my previously painstakingly embroidered “S” was the right way up!)
Brilliant Barbara snagged a few vintage hankies from the CTB with plans to create a purty purse & replaced them with a couple of adorable bits n’ bobs from her own stash before sending it onto its next European adventure! *that scissor pin is fabulous!
*Reminder to participants: we’d all love to keep up with the CTB’s journey so, pretty please with strawberries & lactose-free cream on top, after you’ve received the box share an update with at least one photo (or the link to your own CTB blog post if ya got one) over on facebook or twitter…
…and the memories continue with yet another thrift style theme plucked directly from my fashion past:
In the early 90′s (& beyond) I was heavily into the whole grunge style scene, along with that oh-so-cool Seattle Sound & the movie Singles, that alternative trend has stuck with me throughout the years. To this day most of my daily ensembles still consist of chunky-clunky-comfy boots paired with boldly patterned vintage dresses & cool tights (although nowadays I don’t tend to shred my legwear as I did in my younger years).
