OOTD – Let It Snow!

Posted on: January 25, 2013

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay Fri-Yay Fri-Yay

After a long restless night due to a toothache I awoke to this gift from God!

This is the calm before the storm as Winter is definitely in full force, with snow scheduled to begin falling around 3 p.m.  The roads have been brined to cut down on commuter accidents because the temps are also going to drop even lower into the single digits.

As you can see, I am fully prepared and hopefully will leave early enough to stop and pick up a bottle of wine (for me) and Chinese take-out for my men. My plans are to be indoors snug-as-a-bug-in-the-rug until at least Sunday.

These Paisley Skinny Jeans and Infinity Scarf were both on clearance at Target and men’s sweater was thrifted from GW Boutique (Goodwill). The boots have been in my closet for several years and most likely were purchased from Payless.

Believe it or not, this faux fur vest once was a coat that I DIY’d because it didn’t fit properly. I shorten the length using the excess for a scarf, removed the sleeves and made a pair of leg warmers.

Do you refashion clothing, if so, what have you done and how did it work out?

No like snow…too cold! We’ve gotten an inch or two already and it may continue – boo hiss! Nice alteration on the faux fur.

Thanks, are you indoors?

Good – have a great weekend – stay warm!

What a beautiful picture of a sunrise! Love your infinity scarf today, what a great bold print!
Have a great weekend!

Happy friday to you! A bottle of wine and a night in sound freakin’ fantastic! I need to get to the store before the ice gets to thick on the road! 😉

Good luck, it took me almost 3 hours!

love the vest! Xo Megan,

Thank you, I like it much better than when it was a coat – lol Have a great day!

Sure looks like you’ve got the whole snow thing covered 😉 You are so crafty with that coat. Way to go! Have a fun weekend in hibernation.

Now that I am home….man traffic was horrendous!

i always wanted to refashion clothing but when it gets down to the actual work, I get lazy and back out. I love what you did with the fur coat!

Thank you and I know what you mean. I think it was a cold and snowy day when I refashioned the coat. Have a fantabulous weekend!

What a great refashioning job. Your vest looks amazing!
