Revamped Fashion

"Baby I got a pocket full of dreams."
-Cher Lloyd

Over this past year and a half, Charlotte Russe has become a staple boutique in my wardrobe. Many of the posts I have done, I've had on something that I purchased from Charlotte Russe. Since I believe in penny pinching at times, I will cut something and sew it back real quick. This post represents just that, my passion of redefining a piece of clothing to fit your needs and wants.

My summer has been both inspiring and motivational, and I will do whatever it takes to share it with you guys!!

Live.Life.Freely
Spring 2010 Summer 2011

The simple revisions that I made to this garment are:

1. Spaghetti Straps cut and made to tie behind my neck (4os inspired flair)
2. Dress is actually cut to the mid-drift
3. This Maxi Skirt is actually an Old Navy Dress
4. For a more polished look, I paired a belt from Old Navy with this outfit

Its as easy as a few snips and staple pieces to recreate a whole new wardrobe without spending boat loads of money.
