Just one of the many reasons I heart fall is all the extra thick fashion magazines! They’re a great source of inspiration for refashions to add to my wardrobe and trends to look out for when scouring thrift stores, because as we know many past trends inevitably become in vogue again. On my last trip to Value Village I went prepared with a list and surprisingly crossed off each item! Even though I had a list, an open mind is a must since you never know what will be hanging on the racks. Subconsciously I picked items with a similar color palette, which works out great. The following pieces are numbered from easiest to hardest considering both technical difficulty and confidence in outcome. I hope you look forward to seeing the results of my refashions in the coming weeks! First up will be…
1. Blanket into poncho
2. Oversized t-shirt into workout tank top
3. Plain sweatshirt into bejewelled sweatshirt
4. Trench coat into trench vest
5. Knit vest into shaggy knit vest (the one i’m most unsure about. Fingers crossed!)
Stay tuned to see if my Fall 2016 refashions are a fabulous win or an unfortunate fail! Which are you most looking forward to seeing?
