Fall has finally arrived bringing with it a bone chilling breeze that somehow manages to sneak through every piece of clothing I layer on in an effort to stay warm.
I’m thinking the brisk wind will gradually transform into an absolutely arctic blast so I’m thrilled that I managed to bring over nearly all of my toasty warm thrifted winter gear from Berlin!
For now my trusty old thrifted leather jacket + lots of layers are helping to keep the brisk wind (mostly) at bay. Get the scoop behind my outfit for A Cool it Down #ThriftyThursday, vote for upcoming themes and help me decide how to refashion that flowery velvet sweatshirt below:
Vintage Leather Jacket (had for years) $0.00 – Vintage Velvet Sweatshirt (thrifted) $2 – Vintage Blouse (thrifted) $1 – Destroyed Jeans (refashioned) $0 – Biker Boots (had for years) $0
Total outfit cost: $3
I’m not thrilled with the fit of that velvet sweatshirt style top and am considering refashioning it into a funky bubble skirt or light bomber jacket – what do YOU think I should do with it?
Update: Here’s how transformed that ill-fitting top into an adorable bubble skirt:
