It's still cool and rainy here on the East Coast and will be for a few more weeks. Today was one of those days where it was warm enough to go without a winter coat, but wind and rain meant I still needed an extra layer. Even though IronFish makes fun of the current belted fashions, I still sported it today.
A while back, I saw the Fringed zip vest on Banana Republic's website. I love their clothes but just can't bring myself pay their regular prices (sometimes I find a great bargain on the clearance rack, with a coupon and a gift card, then I'll splurge there). For that matter, I don't like to spend full price on clothes even at Wal-mart!
I found this sweater at the thrift store for $4 (I'm pretty sure it originally came from Wal-mart actually, Faded Glory):
Here's the finished result:
Recently I've been very inspired by Tiffany at Making the World Cuter to dress a bit more stylish and since I'd like to upcycle my wardrobe a bit, I'm going to challenge myself to make at least one item of clothing per week, thanks to Elizabeth at Sew Chatty for the Wardrobe Challenge idea.
It was super comfy and I got a few compliments on it, despite the teasing I got from IronFish...
Peace be with you,
