DIY Tank

So I am sure we all have a drawer full of junk T-shirts from your job, races you have run, and free giveaways. I myself end up using these tee’s for pajamas. I found a DIY pin on Pinterest  (don’t you just love pinterest) on how to make your frumpy tee’s more fashionable.  Check out mine!




So this is what you will need:

Tank top



1. Pick your over sized shirt, I decided on camo shirt I picked up at the thrift store for $0.99.


2.  Cut around the ribbed collar of your t-shirt until it is completely off. Make sure to stay close to the seam.


3. Remove both sleeves by cutting around the seams that attach the sleeves to the main body of the shirt. Again, make sure to stay close to the seam.


4. Cut the neck hole about an 1.5 inches deeper. I recommend cutting to the halfway point and folding the cut strip onto the other side. Then you can use the part you’ve already cut as a stencil for the other part; this way the neck hole isn’t lopsided. Or you can do like I did and grab your sports bra, outline the front of the tank so its even and then cut the neck.



5. Now cut the sleeve holes about an inch from the neck line. The tutorial I found said to make a cut like the one here. But I found that this cut makes the shirt gape a little awkwardly on the sides. I recommend turning the shirt over and cutting more onto the back than on the front.


6. Cut a “V” down the back of the shirt and using the scraps from the sleeve, cut a strip about 2″ wide and 8″ long. (I used the collar that I cut off)


Now I have super cute tee’s I can work out in, heck I can even wear these tops out with a pair of jeans or shorts!




Refashion: Vintage Dress

I bought a sew machine a few months back and its been sitting in my closet ever since. So since its a rainy day here in Atlanta I decided to pull my Brother machine out and alter a few items that I cant give away, so why not alter them so I can fit them again! I came across this dress while going through my closet.

So the dress falls below my knees and I felt it wasnt really flattering for my body so I decided to cut it shorter and hem it, heres how it looks cut and hemmed.

Im so proud of my self, I know its not that big of a refashion but its a start! Now Im gonna go through my closet and see what else I can alter.

Looks of the Week

I’m so sorry I’ve been really bad at posting daily so I decided to at least post 3 days a week starting next week. Running my own businesses,  a mommy meetup group, training for a half marathon (13.1 miles),  and being a stay at home mommy/wife can keep me busy most days but I wouldnt change it for the world I love my hectic life, LOL!

Everyone always ask why do I always take pictures on this brick wall (my signature wall) you always see me in the back drop, well my daughter which is 5 takes all my pictures right before we jump in the car to start our day. We live in a town house and its is all brick, plus the lighting is great!  😉

A little Glamour mixed with Western

On this day I decided I wanted to be comfortable but fab like always.. 🙂 At least once a month I take my dad to his Dr appointments and I try to look my best even running errands and helping my dad out. I do hate that people mistake me for his wife or girlfriend, ugh gross..LOL

I bought the red checkered shirt (goodwill) thinking how cute it would look in the spring time with some white skinny jeans or shorts with a strappy heel or red converse. The necklace I bought about 2 years ago from forever21 and decided to finally pull it out and rock it with my western shirt (a little glamour mixed with western). 😉

As for the jeans & the cropped red jacket they are also from the Goodwill, the boots are by Liz & Co I caught on sale at Jcpennys during Black Friday for $30.00 (great price for real leather, I take that back can you say STEAL).






Thrift Haul

If you haven’t figured it out I am a thrift junkey! I try to go at least twice a week but no less than once a week. Last week I had to do a photography session an hour away from me in Roswell. I went up a little early so I can look for a few thrift stores and what to do I find? I drive up to this Salvation Army, but this wasn’t just any Salvation Army this one was big! They had clothes, furniture, linen, just about everything. I was set up like a Marshalls, I was in heaven.

I ended up finding a pair of trousers, a dress, and a pair of shorts.

Brand new with tags it was 24.99 but I got it for $9.99



Trousers $3.99



Shorts $2.99

I love all the pieces I found, I used these images for my inspiration when shopping.
