I’m sure most of you have your party duds already picked out for tomorrow- but in case you don’t, this is makeover is fun on so many different levels… Hell, even if you know what you are wearing, the before and after on this one is one of my favorites so far. So without explanation, I give you, The Before:
I think we can all agree that this is pretty much all of the things that you don’t want to be on NYE. I’ll admit- I wore this dress once before as is (not as a joke or a costume) an I loved every minute of it- but it was a bit too high maintenance to get any real milage out of- so I opted for this simple upcycle
I’m pretty delighted with how it turned out. I now have a versatile top that I can mix and match with several different styles. For this look I went for a rock and roll Glam vibe. Gives you the glitz you need for the big night with enough casual mixed in to rock the dance floor. Makes me feel like a Babe…a real Babe…
Dress turned crop top: originally from Goodwill: $8, Belt: who the heck knows, I thrifted it from somewhere for $2 when I was 19 and have held on to this magical treasure ever since. Pants: Forever 21 $25, Boots: purchased in the LA fashion district 10 years ago for $15, Jacket: From City Thrift in Clarksville $4. Necklace hand made by my sis.
Wishing you all a fun, healthy and creative New Year!
Love and Thrift,
