Adorable Headbands by Disney...

You can see her


Turning Pants into a skirt!??!

Oh my- this sistah has got the knack!

To see a tutorial on how to make--

matronly pants become

an adorable ruffle skirt


I am a bit sad-

I found her site- over the holidays...

and we could have been such blogging buddies!-

but she has retired from blogging.

Thankfully she left her site up!

She has so many great ideas!

SEW simple ideas!

Plan on me sharing them.... this month!

Another FAshionista

I found Kristina-

who is an amazing seamstress... designer/re-designer...

Her fashion style reminds me alot of Tessa.

The top pictures are kristina

and these pictures are Tessa

( here's tess 15-20 years from now....)

I think what draws me.... to blogs like theirs....

is they have FUN with their clothes.

I am very -- conservative and safe when I dress...

and that is FINE... there is nothing wrong with that....

but it's nice to

once in a while

to add a little whimsy...

I love the idea of re-vamping clothing! That is just being THRIFTY and FRUGAL...
and I LOVE being thrifty and frugal!

My ruffles- only go half way down the shirt....
not all the way to the bottom seam.
It turned out REALLY cute.
Also I've been obsessed with flowers on shirts and sweaters.
We spent Christmas in Utah - where all things are FAD and FASHIONABLE and it seemed EVERYONE had some type of flower or ruffle shirt-- except me!

I'll post more-- later promise.

I just wanted to acknowledge-

It's a new year.I was a complete slacker - in December (as far as posting/blogging)

BUT I am back on board...
so let's dust off our Personal Progress books
and get crack-a-lacken!
So here I am - in the bathroom... taking a picture of my outfit... that I wore to interpret... (notice the ruffles on my shirt?).
I am interpreting a different class... so you will get pictures of different bathrooms now...
BUT- I snapped this quickly- and then realized there was SOMEONE IN THE BATHROOM STALL>>>
how creepy is that??...
to be using a bathroom and
hear a
