Frump to Fabulous: Maternity Dress Edition

I found this very 90's dress the other day and thought that with a little work it could be a perfect slouchy summer outfit. It was only when I started working on it that I realized it was a maternity dress... Well it's amazing what a difference a hem line can make.

Thread Peddling

Rusty and Wong Ling Ling will be selling some wistful Vintage Fashions to evoke fond memories from times that none of us have experienced (ie. too young). But if you like dressing like you're old, with a young heart (like we do), then come on down to College and Spadina on Sunday and visit the Vintage Fashion Bazaar that we will be hawking our wares at.

See yalls there!

Interested in more information? Check out Studio Gallery's website (the place that is hosting the Bazaar).

We Do Acid Like it Ain't No Thang

Yesterday we decided to acid wash some clothes. If you ever make the same decision its pretty easy, it just may not necessarily come out the way you want it to!

All you really need is bleach and a spray bottle (or any other application implement), also maybe some gloves (bleach is corrosive to the skin...duh).

Et Voila! (Jeans— After)

Croquet Leaque

The other day we played croquet in the park.
Shinanagins ensued.
Don't mess with these hardcore mallet swingers

Instead, she decides to attack another player.
Mallets are better used on the head rather than the ball

We found this on the way home.
Everyone should own one. It is a bag that drys you hair!

Spending Spring Inside

I am now in summer school, so instead of enjoying this lovely weather I will be indoors working.

Wardrobe Revamp

Every Spring I find myself faced with the same problem, amazing weather after a terrible winter, and a closet full of clothes with nothing to wear. Instead of throwing everything out and starting a fresh is it easier (and less costly) to try to look at old clothes with new eyes.

I combed through my closet trying to understand why certain things just don' t strike my fancy anymore. Last year I photographed myself in this dress for a style competition and won. But I never actually ended up wearing it that often. This is not an edition of Frump To Fabulous because it is not frumpy, I just lost interest. So like rekindling an affair with an old flame I tried to spice things up a bit and revamp an old look.
