I finally got to do something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long while! I hit up a bunch of vintage second hand stores in my area for some super fun shopping. My accomplices and I (as pictured above), spent hours digging through clothing finding some super cool stuff. It was pretty hot and exhausting, so we took a well deserved frozen yogurt break.
Ready to see my fabulous finds? Okay! Here we go:
These pants make me feel super sassy. I love how I’m doing sexy-face and Tawnya is in the background shredding some cheese. I had to have these pants after trying them on and seeing that waist. High-waisted things, how I love thee.
Another high-waisted item? Why yes, yes it is. I went back and forth a million times on whether I should get the skirt or not. I loved loved loved the waist… but the length? Promising myself I would sew it up to my satisfaction, I got it. (Hat-not vintage but from the same shopping trip, shoes-Target, Shirt-Nordstrom)
Step 1: Try skirt on and give it a really close look. What do you not like about it?
Well for one thing, it does this weird puffy thing in front giving me a cute pot belly, and my short-legs need a shorter length.
Step 2: Turn inside out, put back on, and start pinning. (Roll up the lining to deal with later).
No more pooch please.
Shorten the length.
Step 3: Turn the skirt right-side out again, and see how it look with the pins. Looks decent, let’s sew!
I step away from the mirror for one minute and my cat goes diva on me. “Oh Lex, you are so pretty yes I am.” He did get a new collar, so maybe that’s what he was checking out.
Oh hey, the sewing is all done!
Much better, no? I think so anyway. 🙂
Also, I found these super cool vintage frames! Right now they don’t have any lenses, but who knows what the future will hold for them.
