From drab to fab

Hey there!

    Sorry it’s been quite awhile since my last post- moving back to college kept me extremely busy! Last week when I was packing I was having a very, very, and I mean very difficult time packing my closet haha. As a small portion of you have seen my overflowing yet “dream closet” (as some of my friends have called it), would know that I merely have WAY too many clothes for a small dorm closet. I managed to stuff about 1/3 of my closet in just a couple suitcases (the zippers were about to rip but that’s ok right?) Just as always when I go through my closet I find clothes that I don’t wear anymore. I normally fill a bag to donate to Goodwill but this time I decided to keep the clothes I don’t wear anymore to alter and vamp up these clothes. When all was done, I had a huge laundry basket filled with clothes for me to alter.
     So far I have hemmed up some shorts, a dress and altered a few shirts and skirts. Below I posted some before and after pics from the outfits I altered. Sorry that most of them are from my Iphone, no one was home to take the pics for me ha! I will also be posting some DIYs about certain clothes (skinny jeans, crop top, shorts, etc)
     Also… I went on a pillow frenzy! This year I was changing up my accent color in my room from red (last year) to turquoise and yellow; and what easier way to give the room a new vibe and accent color than by simply changing the throw pillows!Also I made a turban headband from some left over fabric from my pillows! Enjoy and please leave feedback on here or my facebook (https://www.facebook.com/SimplyAudreeKate)

floral dress

 

Before: I got this floral dress from my sister’s closet years ago and well… it’s very long
After: Just above the knee and perfect for a nice brunch, work with a contrasting blazer or cardigan, or date night with a nude pump and loose curls

Crop top and black skinny jean
(DIY posted soon)

 

Before: This teal romper was fun for summer but sadly shrunk in the wash & these black Dickies were worn for a previous job
After: I cut off the short part of the romper and took in the inside hem of the pants to make into a skinny jean
Pillows

I recovered some old pillows from my house and this is what my new set up looks like

These are two felt flower pillows I made (inspiration from Pinterest)
