Super fun, right? I was on a mission this past month to find the perfect sweater and I was armed with several ideas of how to turn the ugly duckling sweater into something super fun and adorable that I would actually use/wear.
So, what did I come up with? Nada. I couldn't find a single 'ugly sweater'. In fact, I couldn't even find a cute sweater that would work for the projects I had in mind.
As such, I'm left with using a super old purchase from the Goodwill back in SoCal, that I re-donated before we moved.
I bought this totally rad sweater for an 80s themed party and rocked it with some pink polyester pants (also purchased at Goodwill), blue heels, and some huge neon hoops. Oh, and a scrunchie. Can't forget the scrunchie!
This gem only cost me $2.00, and it really made the outfit! ;)
I also decided to participate in the denim challenge, since I kind of failed at the ugly sweater challenge!
This meant actually going down the jean aisles in my local store for the first time. Yep, there's 2 aisles of just women's full length jeans. Crazy amounts of jeans. I'd never browsed before because I have about 50 pairs of jeans and don't need to add to the collection.
I ended up buying a pair of faded wide leg jeans for $4.00, nowhere near my size, to make this!
Omg. I love this clutch! I haven't gotten to it yet as I had some other sewing projects that I needed to get done first. But, it's next on my list! Check back later to see how I did :)
So, I think I totally bombed this month's challenges - but I had a GREAT time trying to accomplish them. I normally just swing into thrift stores while I'm out running other errands, with no plans to buy specific items. This challenge really made me look around more and spend a little more time than I normally do. I'm really looking forward to next month!!
Now, back to Katyln!
