Fashion Friday - Makin' love out of nothing at all.

I have this great project inspiration that requires gray t-shirt material. I had figured that I would need 2 men's t-shirts, but just hadn't gotten around to getting them.

When I was out shopping this week, (after my 5 week break...yay me!) I found this H&M dress for $4.
As you can tell, it's PLENTY of material.
Even though it is my size, there is seriously enough room for a couple of me to get in.

But, I was seeing some potential

And I decided to wear it before slaughtering it.

Gray thread, a needle and 5 minutes, and this massive dress was a cute top.
So easy, a caveman could do it. I forgot to take pics of the actual process, but all I did was bunch up the sides to the length I wanted, and hand stitch on the inside.

Get a good look at it now, because hopefully by this time next week, it will be in pieces!

Outfit Deets:
Top/Dress - H&M

Liquid Leggings - Walmart

Heels - Steve and Barry's

Necklace - No clue

So, my challenge to you is, get something out of your closet that you don't wear, and play with it. You may have a new fav right in your closet!

  20. I came over to your blog for the first time today, and I really enjoyed it! ESPECIALLY the fashion tips. I have NO fashion sense and being a SAHM have little money to spend, so I really love your Fashion Fridays. Thanks for the wonderful posts, I went back and read all your Fridays posts from last year! Cooper is adorable, and I agree with you on Taye and Jesse:)
