|Yay! Going to the second hand store:-D|
Today it was just an awfull weather. It was raining and you could almost smell that the fall is here already.
|I Bought this brown suede juacket for my "pocket and elbow patch" project for this fall ^^|
So in the spirit of the cold and wet weather I descided to go thrift shopping at a local "red croos" store.
|Under 1 dollar for this wonderful minty green scarf!|
|This is my "special project" jumper. I'm gonna sew in elbow and shoulder patches in it and wear it with the russian hat below, my Ugg's and a pair of warm pantyhoes ^^|
|I like the metalic buttons on the shoulders - that's very "in" this season;-)...maby I'm gonna sew in some elbow patches in this piece aswell. What do you guys think?...|
|This is just such a cute piece! It's 100% silk with shoulder pads - soooo pleased with this purchase...only 2 dollars ^^|
|It doesn't look of much but I've already started on sewing in a suede pocket in it and it looks great!|
|So here you can see how it's gonna look. The shiny material is just perfect for the suede pocket because it makes the pocket really styand out!|
|Now I only have to sew the pocket in:-) I'm thinking of usind a brown thread.|
|This is just a basic rusty red blouse but the color really works on me and with a cool cardigan it's gonna look great!|
|The picture doesn't do justice for this oversized sweater - it's so chic! It's very short but also wide so I have to have a tight long tank top underneath it. But just a super warm and comfortable piece in a fall color.|
Every season I spice my wardrope up with some cool pieces that are second hand - it's not only fashionable - it's common sence and good for the eviroment! ;-)
So if you like some of my new items I urge you to go on your own little thrift adventure and see what treasures you'll find at your local second hand store:-)
I'll be back tomorrow with a new post!
Now I'm off to my sewing kit - I have a jacket that I need to cut into pieces and jumpers that need elbow patches and shoulder pads;-) (I'll be posting a "DIY tutorial" on that soon!)
