God made each body unique. It would be nice if the Fashion Industry would get that memo. Between Clinton and Stacey and ALL of the designers on Project Runway, I fret over each and every piece in my closet. I am down to so few pieces that I could probably pack all of my belongings in two suit cases (and that includes my shoes).
The weekly challenge issued over at Amy Bayliss seemed like an impossible task at first glimpse. I almost commented that I would not be participating, but decided that with a little creativity, this might be the greatest fashion challenge I have ever undertaken.
Outfit #1 – The brown shirt and brown printed skirt. The skirt started out as a halter dress that was handed down to me. I LOVED the print, but there was no way my . . . um, curves were fitting into the halter portion. I cut off the halter, added a little hem and now I have a cute skirt to go with my brown shirt. All I need to make this the perfect outfit is some hot, high heeled boots.
Outfit #2 – The blue pants and printed shirt. The shirt was the major change in this outfit. It also started out as a dress. This time it was the lower half that I did not like. I just cut it off, hemmed the bottom and added a pair of dress pants. I’ll finish this outfit off with some black and silver pumps.
Outfit #3 – The pink skirt and brown shirt. The material of this skirt is amazing, but it started out as a tank dress. I liked the fit and the feel, but the skirt was too long on the dress and I prefer separates. The scissors again came in handy. I cut the tank portion of the dress off and hemmed the skirt to be right a knee level. I paired the skirt with a brown, thrift store find that I have had in my closet. I think the brown boots I will be getting for outfit #1 may also rock outfit #3.
