Remaking Thrift Store Finds

blazerWhile browsing through Pinterest today, I came across a few interesting things while looking at different ways to remake clothes.  I found a few ideas and one really awesome website that I would like to share with you.

First of all, the old hoodie.  We all have one of those that is no longer interesting or trendy, or really even warm anymore.  So why not turn it into a hip new blazer to wear to interviews or for a night out, depending on how you embellish it.

Secondly, I loved the flats that were recovered in lace.  when the faux leather or any finish on the flats start to chip off, you can re-cover them and create an entirely new pair of shoes as long as the sole is still good.

And lastly, I found two websites that I thought had amazing ideas that I would like to share with you.  The first one is called College Fashion, and it has some DIYs on remaking thrift store clothes that I though were helpful.  http://www.collegefashion.net/fashion-tips/how-to-remake-a-thrift-store-dress-part-one/

The second blog that I loved was called Refashionista and was a woman who did a remake of a thrift store find everyday for a whole year.  http://refashionista.net/2012/04/25/day-298-culture-vulture-top/
