I stumbled upon this awesome blog in the usual way, scrolling through Facebook. I love that other people find the good sites and post them. It’s less work for me!
Taking “grandma” clothes (To be clear my Grandmothers are fabulous dressers and do not wear “grandma” clothes, neither does my Mom who is also now a Grandma.) and turning them into fashionable outfits is a great, inexpensive, creative outlet.
In Kenya we have this crazy-large, open air market called Toi (pronounced toy). You can find most any item second-hand (sometimes even brand new) for reasonable prices, especially if you know how to bargain. I just purchased ELEVEN shirts for 35 cents each. THIRTY-FIVE CENTS! Beat that Goodwill. One of which was from Old Navy and still had the tags. Pound it!
After looking through post after post of re-fashions I decided it was worth trying. My wardrobe post birth of Little Bear is sadly lacking in the cute fashion department.
So, in the same Toi trip as the one where I hit the jackpot of cheap, cute clothes I also bought this beauty for way beyond cheap. I admit it isn’t nearly as horrible as some of the ones featured on Jillian’s site. Let it be known I’m taking baby steps. Adjusting the armpits was probably the hardest part but I’m pretty pleased with the final result. What do you think?
