Its amazing what a little inspiration, laziness, and a safety pin can do. So about 3 months ago, I was in H & M perusing for things I can thrift like I usually do and I see a must have. A silver metallic maxi dress. Its slip style, sexy, and I want it. However, per my usual, I leave it and add it to my mental thrift list. A month later I’m in one of my thrift spots and come a cross his piece of huge silver material that turns out to be this dress! Im ecstatic! Despite being 3 sizes to big and a basic boxy long aline, its perfect. I take it home with intentions of doing alterations. As you can guess, I never got around to it. I was pulling looks to shoot and I was dying to get this piece and the way it was set up, I was looking like a shiny hobo. So I turned it around put the split and the zipper to the front, left it alway unzipped, did a fold, tuck, and a pin and violá! Thrifted Metallic MAGIC! That what I love about a thrifted piece! You can effortlessly turn shiny trash into metallic treasure!
How have you turned an undesired piece to hotness? Let me know in the comments!
