Ketchup

What I wore to the wine party on Friday

Cardigan - J. Crew like 10 years ago
Polo - Target
Shoes - Unisa
Skirt - made from a pair of men's underwear I got at a garage sale for $0.25

What? Oh yes, I found some awesome vintage boxers at a garage sale and bought them from a rather embarrassed looking chubby old man... I couldn't help myself. I loved the patterns and the waistbands were so cool, plus they were still brand new in the package! So after removing the butt panel from the back, I just sewed up the back and the fly, removed the legs/crotch region and boom - cutest, cheapest, easiest little skirts ever.

A close up of the one from the above outfit (isn't the waist detail the cutest thing ever?)


The one I fixed up today (my total fave)...


Lookie that cool crest pattern!


The one pair I haven't finished yet...


I will try to post again soon, but it's another crazy working 50 hours week and my friend Megan is in town from Boston, so no promises. In the meantime, I will be wearing a lot of my uniform, a lot of swim suits, and a few old lady slips/nightgowns over them.

 In fact this slip/nightgown thing is from the same garage sale as the boxers... hmm, is it suspicious that I was buying all their unmentionables??

Dress - $0.25 at a garage sale, I had to suck a few sizes out of it and it's still too big but I like it and it's semi-sheerness so you can see my swim suit under it
Swim suit - top Victoria's Secret, bottom Target
Shoes - thrifted vintage

And just to prove I'm not in the business of buying old people's underwear exclusively, I also bought two dresses, two pairs of shoes, some vintage hankies and this bag for $1 each!

nice job on the boxers! I never would have known, had you not revealed their true identity!
