Pinned At Last!

After all these months and months of pinning wardrobe inspirations, I finally interpreted one!

I must plan strategically and well in advance of Sunday morning or I will go to church in jeans - which is okay, of course.  I would just rather be dressing "on purpose" for church.

So, on this particular morning, as I was about to don my previously arranged attire, I remembered the pin and the skirt - the $1 skirt that was in my truck in the "I'm never going to wear this so return it to the thrift shop" bag - and lickety-split, I was not so much dressed as I was pinned!

P.S. I don't copy poses on purpose.  If you've seen previous posts, you know that posing is a skill I lack and if I ever "match" a reference pose, it's a total fluke!

Here's an example.
And here.

My Cinderella Dress

You're darn tootin', I huge-ified these pictures.
I'm quite proud to have re-fashioned this little ditty
from a much plainer and ill-fitting version.

The dress and the shirt had been in my closet for more than their fair amount of time.
I tried to place the dress in a better home
while we were preparing for the fashion show but
it was very oddly cut and was clearly going to fit
only the person for whom it was made...

...so I made myself that person!

And went to a wedding with my very own Prince Charming!

To note - the dress and the shirt (and the sweater) were each $1.
The thread was a gift from a friend.

Frump to Fave

Yes, g'baby is practicing her blog-modeling pose!

Surely, this shirt was fabulous on somebody.
Before I found it at the thrift shop.
Before I went at it with my sewing machine.
One little hem adjustment and voila!
Favorite shirt.


No, we still can't seem to take a decent picture!
