A New Trick Up My Sleeve

9:55 AM 5 Comments A+ a-

Last weekend, due to some poor carpool planning I ended up spending the night at the boyfriends without bringing a change of clothes. (No, I don't keep clothes at his place. What if I wanted to wear them while not at his place? A girl has to have options...) Normally this wouldn't be a huge problem, as I would just wear whatever I had on the night before. But this time, the night before involved this outfit, which wasn't suitable for the BBQ we had planned for lunch. Enter the genius of this lady and whomever pinned her on Pinterest. I pinned this video the week before and filed it in the back of my mind in case of emergencies.






Ex-men's shirt as new dress for you from general ink on Vimeo.

Turns out it works like a charm. The only glitch being my skinny-ish boyfriend. If only he wore a large instead of a medium! A girl could always use a little extra fabric! (Please excuse the gross bathroom mirror. He never cleans it. Something we must work on before co-habitation...)





And when one of the female attendees at the BBQ asked me where I got my cute dress I explained that I made it out of the bf's shirt, no sewing or cutting required, but forgot to mention that I stole the idea from another genius lady. A magician never reveals her secrets!
