What I wore Wednesday....

Its time for another 'What I wore Wednesday'

This week I'm sharing an outfit I created after doing a little makeover on this dress I discovered at the Op shop.....I couldn't resist the floral....and the fabric feels like silk....maybe it is...who knows.
Apart from the fabric though it didn't have a lot going for it....so it was hanging in my wardrobe for months and months....just waiting for me to get the inspiration to recycle it.

Here is a before shot.....see its large....and long....and shapeless.


So I cut it off......added some shirring to the waist.....and turned it into one of my favourite styles of tops...
perfect to wear with leggings and boots....


...and even with my fave Cardi.....or denim jacket...

So GLAD I got off my butt and took to it with the scissors....I love it now.

Top - recycled dress from the Op shop
Pants - leggings from Big W
Boots - Betts this season
Cardi - Target this season
Necklace - a gift from a beautiful friend
Bag - Mmm...not sure...Ive had it for years
Denim jacket - Op shop
