Welcome to the first post in my new weekly series, 49 Cent Friday Refashions, where I take 49-cent thrift store finds and refashion them into something new and wearable.
Today, I thought I’d start out with a simple, no-sew refashion, as I wasn’t feeling very well.
I started out with this skirt that I scored for a mere .49, (hence the title of this post) from my favorite local thrift store Mel Trotter…
The thing with this skirt is, I actually liked it as a skirt, but I don’t wear skirts all that often. So I thought I’d better do a refashion that would still allow me to wear it as a skirt, if the mood ever hit me.
All I did, was put the skirt on as a strapless top…
I topped it with a cute little matching brown jacket (because I’m not used to wearing strapless tops by themselves, and it’s chilly here in February!)
Did you notice the green band on my arm in either of the top two “after” pics?
Well here’s the cause…
Have I ever mentioned that I donate plasma twice a week?
There is a Biolife plasma donation center near where I live.
Plasma is processed into life-saving plasma-based therapies. My plasma gets manufactured into products that save and sustain the lives of people with hemophilia, immune disorders, infectious diseases, kidney disease, trauma, and other chronic and acute medical conditions.
I would like to thank Deanna from Wedding Dress Blue, for giving me the great idea of starting this new weekly segment!
Her blog is awesome! You should go check it out! 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone!
