Have you seen this blog
She takes hideous $1 or less dresses she finds at thrift stores and yard sales
And turns them into something you might actually wear.
And she does it every day.
Yup- she is not only doing this for fun/ to save the earth/ to save money
She is doing it because she needs something to wear for the day.
I have a sudden urge to go to the thrift to find something to refit/dye/ turn into something awesome.
