Professional Refash

This past weekend the husband and I attended an 8 hour dental hygiene seminar in our state’s capital, Lansing. Our seminar was on Friday so we decided to stay until Saturday and make a weekend out of it!

However, I needed to refash myself a professional outfit!

I found this beautiful indigo skirt and cream satin blouse at the 50% off sale on Labor Day…

Lets start with the blouse…
 I removed the sleeves.

   After I removed the sleeves I folded over the arm holes so that there was no more shoulder seam.

 I used a sleeveless shirt I already had as a template to size my new blouse.

   I hemmed my new skirt a whole 4 inches shorter.
 Ready to go learn for 8 hours!

   After all the learning it was time for a drinkie-poo! A yummy hard cider!

  After our dinner and drinks we drove over to the capital building for a quick photo. I am embarrassed to say that this was my 1st time to our capital. Doesn’t my new outfit look so nice with my vintage shoes and purse!?

The next day I dragged my poor husband with me to a thrift store that was down the street from our hotel. What out of town trip would be complete without a trip to scrounge up some refash material!?

 I wore my blouse with a pair of jeans for a casual look!

  Our next stop was Potter Park Zoo! I stumbled across this while googleing attractions  in Lansing. It was a good thing too because we just LOVE visiting zoos!!!

   See my casual look!? I just love love love the ruffles and lace on this blouse!!
Happy Refashioning!!!

  1. Simply gorgeous. I’m a sucker for vintage pieces and I love how the lace & satin can be casual too. A very classy look! Your glasses give it a fun modern spin too. I just love your style, girl 🙂
