wardrobe revamp: intro

I need a new challenge. The posts on self-sustainability for everyone were really good for me to blog about because it gave my blog something substantial to write about. The baby food was definitely a worthwhile challenge. I just need…something.

Ever since I had Piper, nine months ago (has it really been nine whole months!?), I have felt…well…dumpy, to be quite honest. My body looks different than it did pre-pregnancy. And I’m ok with that. At first I didn’t think I was, but then I realized. It’s my wardrobe. I’m still wearing the clothes of a young, flat tummied, early twenty-someone.

Only I can’t justify dumping all my current clothing, and going out and buying a whole new wardrobe. Nor to I have the time to buy a new one one piece at a time. No, I need drastic action.

Last night I folded my family’s laundry and I was absolutely disgusted with the amount of clothing I had and the fact that I hated just about every piece of it. The only reason I wear any of it is because I have no choice. This is no way to live.

Then I had to ask myself…

What would Little Women do?

or

What would Laura Ingalls do?

They would reinvent their wardrobe! Dye a used/stained white garment in tea or coffee. Place a bow over an old stain. They would turn something old into something new again! Genius!

And so my lovelies, with the help of pinterest, books, and sewing patterns, I shall endeavor to overhaul and revamp my entire wardrobe one garment at a time. If it cannot be reused, it will be given to a new home!

Would it be gross to offer a giveaway of my used clothing on this blog? Maybe yes?

Anyway, I’m off to find THE thing to transform or create today. Wish me luck!

  1. That’s so exciting! And no it would NOT be gross! People buy clothes at thrift stores, silly!

    Here’s my secret plan: make all my old shirts into new dresses for Z, so I need to buy a new wardrobe and she doesn’t. Good? ;]

    • yes! The more I’m looking at my clothes, the more things i think of for piper than for myself so this will be a challenge!
