Tired of the same dull resolutions that you just can’t seem to keep? This year promise to step away from unethically produced fast fashion & decor and make 2015 all about (re)creating your own one of a kind style!
Not sure where to start? Fear not! I’m here to help with my fancy schmancy new Refashioning 101 series!
I’m often asked what exactly a “Refashionista” is so let’s start with my personal definition: [ree-fash-uh-nee-stuh] A kick ass DIY eco-fashion upcycling warrior who firmly believes that fabulous, affordable, unique style can be achieved by anyone without supporting the growing phenomenon of cheap, unethically produced “fast fashion”.
Awesome…but where to begin? Why, with a little something called Potential!
What do you see when you look at that frumpy thrifted bathrobe? An ugly ill-fitting garment or a high quality vintage item that can easily be transformed with 4 simple no-sew steps into a rather stunning (and oh-so-comfortable) dress!
1. Snag a frumpy (yet fabulously patterned) vintage bathrobe or housecoat. 2. Wrap the belt around your waist from front to back. 3. Tie the belt in a bow at the back. 4. Pull the top half of the robe up & over the belt until the dress is your desired length.
Take a peek at my video below and discover why “Refashionista Thrifting” is all about seeing potential + learn a few helpful refashioning tips to get you started recreating your own unique style!
