Winter White Moto Jacket- Look #3

Posted on: February 28, 2013

These photos were taken the very first time I wore this jacket and on a much warmer day which explains the bare feet and slingback shoes…

IMG_1981I love the mix of new and thrifted items in this outfit.  The jacket is from Forever 21 and the brown jeans are Diane Gilman from HSN while the shoes and top are thrifted.  I get such a kick out of these shoes and have only worn them a few times when those unseasonably Spring Days came our way… I love them and will wear them a lot more as we move into warmer weather…

IMG_1988I feel like pinching myself when I think about scoring these darling shoes for just $4.  I am so happy to have rekindled my love of thrifting and am lucky to have a new friend who loves it as much as I do.  If you are not a thrifter, I challenge you to head to one and check it out and see if your preconceptions are altered.  I can promise you that most who accept the challenge will become highly addicted!

I hope to go the the Goodwill Center that sells by the pound when I return from vacation.  I’ve never been but think it would be a fun adventure.  I keep finding great skirts at Goodwill in size 10’s and am thinking if I bought them by the pound for cheaper I can risk trying my hand at taking them in to fit me… I would only get ones that have zippers in the back, not the side… I wanted to try my hand at refashioning clothes before I started my blog and have accumulated all the necessary tools.  

Dear Readers, I hope you are having a great week and know I will be enjoying myself and hoping not to gain too much weight….Refashioning clothes is next on my wish list of things to try… Do you have anything special that you want to do creatively in your life?  Will you do it soon or are you waiting for some reason?   Creativity is good for the soul, so I hope every one either has something or is on there way to finding that something… It doesn’t have to be ongoing, even making one project from Pinterest board is a start!

Come back tomorrow to see this dress and skirt lover style this jacket with a dress!  

Gratitude:  I am grateful that I have things I want to do next to look forward to.  I am grateful for the support of a wonderful husband who didn’t blink when I bought a sewing machine and dress form….I am grateful for learning how to sew (just the basics) and the memories of my mother sewing things for me.
