MMM Days 10-13

Life has been crazy, so here's a quick run-down of the last four days!

Thursday: This dress is a refashion from an estate sale. It was huge, and floor length originally, with weird, drawstring-like things hanging from the collar. I shortened it, took it in, removed the strings and made a belt. It turned out pretty well for an easy work dress...

Friday: This top is also from an estate sale, I took it in, shortened the sleeves and added elastic to them so they would puff out a little. (not that you can tell from this picture)

Saturday: This top I made from
Simplicity 3835 from the Built by You line (the same pattern from my 60's mini dress). It's a little tight in the sleeves but it's an easy top to throw on, which is really what I want from all my clothes, the ability to throw on and go... My sister took this picture before we made the trek to Luminaria, a really cool arts festival downtown in our city. There were beautiful art installations everywhere and food booths from famous local restaurants. It was a little chilly but all-in-all, pretty fabulous! Definitely on my list for next year!

This art installation was hanging from the entry gate to the park. So pretty!

Sunday: To be honest, I only wore this outfit for about 20 minutes to run to the grocery store for dinner. The rest of the day was spent entirely in sweats (hence the lack of makeup and the wacky hair in the pic!) I almost felt like taking a break from the challenge today since I only went out of the house for a minute but I figured I could throw on this shirt and still rock the challenge. PS The shirt is from a thrift store and I pretty much just took it in. Not much of a refashion but oh well...

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Definitely, I love the yellow top of the second photo, it's my favorite.
