From What? To Wear! Begins



Ok so Ive finally found the perfect piece to start this journey... For a while Ive been wanting to feature a section where I take a unique vintage piece deemed unwearable by some well actually by most lol and convert it to something a little bit more fashionable... 

I got the idea a few years back, before I even started this blog, when my vintage craze was a mere means of saving money and keeping it original being a strapped for cash college student will make you creative I would bring home crazy things and my friends would immediately turn there noses and say "What is That?" "I Don't see the vision" and a slew of other doubtful remarks... But with the help of my magic scissors it's what I called my sewing shears sewing machine and any other tools "Viola'" instant fashion "Wear" and "From What ? To Wear! was born!  I know this was kinda lengthy but I had to get it out lol 

Anyway, here's the first piece! Well at least the one being featured from the beginning... I have pieces featured that I altered long before I found this and I knew it was perfect! Loved the colors! And I knew this skirt would be best complemented with the hi-low trend...


Before ...

After!



Once I found these, I knew it was meant to be!







Soo... Next up, here are a few things in the works...  So remember what they used to be cause when you see them again, they'll be renewed!  Stay tuned!
