PNP: altered floral blazer

As promised, the result of my altered blazer! And it didn't even take me that much time to get it up here, haha! With many thanks to my lovely sister for taking the 'after' shots ;)

So, here is the before:

 As you can see, just a tiiiiiiny bit too large (pardon my face, it's just to stress the fact that the fit isn't quite right ;) ). So I took in the sides, removed the shoulder pads and refitted the shoulders and arm holes. I used this tutorial by Cotton + Curls (She is amazing!! Check out her other projects as well! ).

And this is the result:

I am super pleased with how it turned out! Can't wait to wear it! I think I'm going to take this one with me on my upcoming trip to Italy, the print is just so summery, and it seems perfect as a cover-up in the evening.

Have a great weekend!
Love, Birgit

Thrifted finds

It has been such a long time since I've posted anything... Shame on me! I have just been so busy with exams and everything.
Anyway, I squeezed in a little thrift shopping, and I wanted to share my finds with you.

I bought the purple skirt, the floral blazer en the dotted skirt at Think Twice (they have different shops in Belgium), for 1 euro each, what a steal!
The left bag is also from Think Twice, for 3 euros, and the clutch on the right is from a small second hand bag shop in Antwerp, for 9 euros.
The blazer was a bit too big, so I'm altering it (you will see the result in a next post), and I plan on making shorts out of the dotted skirt. Hopefully I will get it all done before I leave on vacation!

Do you ever go thrift shopping?

Love, Birgit
