I picked up a pair of pants (trousers) this week for $2.50, in the children clothing section of a local church op-shop. Quite frankly, they were pretty horrific, but strangely alluring at the same time.
Take a closer look now....
Well, I hope not. You see, I could see potential there somewhere. My usual thrifty habit involves scouring op-shops for nice, pretty or unusual fabric, no matter the size, nor gender intended for the item of clothing, and these pants were no exception.
Shorts. That's what I thought. I gave them the chop-off, and added some faux turn ups.
My biggest fan showing her appreciation:
Of course one does not usually totter around in vintage heels with shorts, but hey, its only my back yard, and its not like I'm off to do my grocery shopping at Woolworth's or anything.
The scarf is an addition for a reason; I am participating in Sophie's fun February Scarf Challenge.
This circle dotted scarf was given to me by my Mum, purchased in a UK charity shop.
This will be shared with the Refashion Co-op on my editor blog post tomorrow.
