A Fringed Thrift Style Thursday

I’ve always had a lurv/hate relationship with fringe. Growing up on the Canadian prairies meant my fair share of countrified outfits sporting those strings & tassels that seemed to catch & grab onto just about everything & annoy my young self to no end…

but with age comes maturity, life experience and the knowledge that when done right FRINGE IS AWESOME!

…and so I present not one but two fabulous fringed ensembles for your thrifty inspiration:

 

The ever popular fringed (faux) leather jacket…

and casual boho kimono!

Sunglasses (thrifted ) €0.20 –  Fringed faux leather jacket (thrifted) €4 – Sweatshirt dress (thrifted & refashioned) €1 – Tights (had for years) €0 – Biker boots (ebay) €4 – Sunglasses (thrifted ) €0.20 –  Fringed kimono (thrifted & refashioned) €3 – White top (had for years) €0 – Belt (thrifted) €1 – Jeans (had for years) €0 – Schweden Clogs (had for 17 years – now that’s quality!) €0

Total cost for both outfits: €13.40

…and that boho kimono makes for a great neighbourhood street fair look!

YOU Decide the DIY!

I scored this absolutely amazing 2m x 1.80m length of vintage fabric at the flea market for a mere €1.50!

I haven’t a clue what it’s composed of but it’s super soft, has A LOT of stretch & is semi-transparent with a fab waffle texture.

The question is: Just what should I create with this groovy find?

Vote below for your fave idea & I’ll choose the most popular, get makin’ and share the how-to:

A Mad About Plaid Thrift Style Thursday

Perhaps it’s due to my Irish/Scottish roots but I’m definitely a fan of plaid (& tartan)!

*and by popular demand I’ve sifted through my box-of-awesomeness-from-the-past to bring you yet another TST themed throwback pic:

according to the back of this pic I was “out eating shabu shabu last summer” – way to be specific young Sheri

Holy eyebrows batman! Mad about plaid indeed!

I have loads of plaid in my wardrobe and had a wee bit of a hard time deciding just which bits of thrifted fabulousness to share but finally decided to build an ensemble from my refashioned-from-dude-trousers wool shorts…

Smoking jacket (thrifted) €2 – Graphic Tee (thrifted) €1.50 – Plaid-ish Bag (thrifted) €1 – Plaid Wool Shorts (stolen from the dude & refashioned) €0 – Plaid Tights (had for years) €0 – Suede lace-ups (thrifted) €3

Total cost: €7.50
