In addition to my previous post, here is another tip of style on a dime.
When money is tight, don’t start stressing. Go through your closet and find which articles you can transform into something new and exciting.
Here are two fall dresses I turn into summer hits by a couple simple alterations.
I found this in a thrift store and I loved the fit, but did not wear it much this past fall because I found it shape less. I decided to turn it into a summer hit. I turned the dress inside out and simply cut the sleeves off right next to the seam to get a little detail on the edges. I then cut the bottom to my desired length. I did have to hem the bottom to give it a finished look.
I love the pattern on this dress, but felt it was a little too much. I felt I had to choose either the top or bottom. All I did was cut the top off along the elastic band.
Whether you have money or not sometimes creating something new and different could be much more exciting than a brand new store bought item you’ll only wear once or twice. It makes and your bank account feel better.
