two for one special

skirt/ shirt: thrifted (refashioned)
Gap shorts: Platos Closet
belt: forever 21
jean jacket: Target
lace shirt: Forever 21
boots: Walmart
scarf: Charlotte russe

This is probably the best and easiest refashion i have ever done!  it seriously took me like 5 minutes!!  im really happy with how it turned out too!  i think its super cute and i love that i can wear it either as a shirt or a skirt.  its one piece of of clothing but it could make two totally different outfits!  i love both of these outfits, but i think my favorite is where im wearing it as a shirt.  when its a shirt its just so loose and relaxed and it looks so cute with a belt!

p.s.  i really love my makeup!!  haha i think i did a good job.  im pretty much makeup illiterate so i usually dont put a lot on, but i think i did a really good job!  i even put eyeliner on!  oooh! haha

p.p.s.  im doing my first hair tutorial tomorrow!!  excited?  me too! haha im going to show you how to do THIS hairstyle!

 this is what it looked like before.  it was a dress and about three sizes too small!! haha

now for the tutorial!

first i measured how long i wanted it to be and i cut it...with scissors.  so complicated! haha

then i measured some elastic big/ small enough to snugly fit me.  then i pinned and sewed it.  that's it!!  isn't that the easiest refashion ever???  i think it is! haha.  have a wonderful Thursday!!
