Introducing Found Fashion Fridays!


I’ve decided to not only post images of my own outfits but of those that I see when I’m out and about! It won’t be every Friday starting off but I’m hoping to post one of these babies at least once a month. To kick things off, here are some fashionable locals that made it in this month’s lineup!

It’s Friday, what are you gals wearing this weekend? I’d love to see your ootd. Share a link to one of yours in the comments!

June 24th OOTD: Remixing my Forever 21 Dress


Today I decided to try something different with my OOTD. I grabbed my thrifted purple skirt (Hillard & Hanson) and paired it a dress from Forever 21. With a little tucking and the right ear rings, I wound up with a colorful draping effect on top and a classic fit on the bottom. I wanted to be comfortable so I just tossed on some tan sandals (I think from Payless actually). Today was even better because I got to chat with an old friend. Now on to the video editing! My Youtube channel launches on July 5th. If you read my blog on the regular basis, feel free to let me know what you’d like to see. I’m thinking art, fashion, photos and logging.

4.10.15 Today’s Outfit (Weekly Wardrobe Capsule)


Cheers, it’s Friday! Today I felt like dressing up again, so I put on a dress that I found at the Goodwill. This dress was a size 10 until I tried my hand at making it fit with my sewing machine. I’m very happy with the result. You’ll see more of the dress later this week. Dresses are an outfit in one piece but I wanted to keep layering so I added the brown leather jacket by New York & Company, given to me by my Mom-in-law last year. Then I grabbed a pair of earrings that my Mom made for me and a pair of sandal wedges from DSW and bam, outfit completed. This is the first time I’ve paired leather with a cotton dress but I like the results. I think the pattern makes a great contrast with the brown and the golden buttons on my jacket. What do you think?

3.28.15 My OOTD


Today’s ootd is really big, to me at least, lol. I found this dress at the thrift shop and really liked the pattern but it was way too big to fit me. After watching some sewing tutorials and reading some books from the library, I adjusted it to fit me and even added pockets. All that was left to do was to add a belt. I really love this dress and plan to wear it often. How do you think it turned out? Any tips or comments are greatly appreciated.

Have courage,
Elle
