The other day when I came home from thrifting and shared my treasures with Geoff, I pulled this out of the bag only to see him cringe a bit. And that's understandable since this started out as a super XL wide-legged jumpsuit. There was just something about it (and the $2 price tag) that I couldn't live without!
Click to enlarge. This is how the jumper started. I knew that I saw something beautiful in it... somewhere! The altering was very simple — all I had to do was take in the sides. I also tapered the legs and brought up the crotch just a tad to give it a harem pant-inspired look. What do you think?
I really love this necklace by (of)matter. I picked this up in January on sale at Urban Outfitters. The first thing it made me think of was LOST. Does anyone else out there love that show? I really miss it sometimes even though the ending was 'meh.' Anyway, this is up cycled from a vintage flip clock. You can pick one up for yourself here!
