Closet Redo-ing

For the record I LOVE CLOTHES.
Also for the record I don't always have a lot of money or the right body frame to wear some of the clothes I'd like.  So I took matters into my own hands this weekend, and elevated some thrifted items into the wearing potential they deserve.  The best part was NO SEWING INVOLVED!!!

First up:  long white "gypsy bohemian" skirt.
Long skirts tend to look rather ridiculous on my 5'4" frame, so I cut off two layers at the seams and VIOLA!  new summer skirt.

Next up:  V-neck, empire waisted spaghetti strap jersey cotton dress.
This dress would have been super cute on a less endowed body frame.  Too bad that body frame isn't mine.  So instead of lamenting about another cute dress I can't comfortably wear, I snipped off the fabric above the elastic empire waist and VIOLA! new strapless top.

What have you revamped lately?

Also, please tell me I'm not the only one obsessed with belts this season.  Please, someone... anyone...

I LOVE the strapless top...SO CUTE!! I feel so inspired to do some re-doing of my own this week.

I've been considering pulling a summer of '91 for weeks - chopping off my jeans for some shorts. I think it's time!!! Thanks for the inspiration :)
