For those who believe clothing should be an expression of ourselves, but not 0ur value (mind over price tag), who aren't afraid to shake up an office casual day or who want to let their hair down on the weekends.



Reinvention: A Little Something Extra

I was looking for a way of adding a bit more flavor to this turtleneck and thrift-store skirt ensemble. The skirt is great. It was made in India and has silver sequins sewn in throughout it. But it was still a little too plain for my taste.

Over the holidays, I rummaged through the clearance section and found a ton of gift wrapping ribbon in unique styles that could possibly be re-purposed. I purchased a 15 ft. spool of gold ribbon with black velvety embellishments from Target for about $2.50

So I thought this would be a great opportunity to see how I could use this with an outfit. I cut a piece to fit across the top of the skirt with a little bit of an overlap. Then I used my gold metallic flower pin to secure the ribbon to the waist.

Now it's more Indian Gypsy. Plus, I mixed silver and gold for a bit of rebelliousness.
