    Caged Bralette D.I.Y & Palazzo Pant (T.B.T)

    Hi everyone! So this is kind of a throwback post because if you look below those 2 picture collages are from 3 years ago when I graduated from college! I made these pants and wore them to my graduation dinner! They actually are probably one of the first pair of pants I ever made. I remember having to take them to the cleaners to get hemmed after I made them because I really didn’t know how to hem rayon at the time! I’ve come a long way in this sewing world but I still have so much further to go!!

    Also, if you haven’t been able to tell already, I keep things I like/love for a very long time. Especially if I’ve made them. I know you may be thinking to yourself like “why are you still wearing pants you had from 3 years ago??” The answer is because I can still fit them, I still like them, and because I simply want to! This is not to say I never throw away something I’ve made because sadly I throw away a lot of projects that don’t turn out how I envision  them, and of course some things do get to small. However, often times I wear things I’ve made once or twice, put them away for a long time, then randomly wear them again when I want to. lol

    Anyway I recently brought these pants back out and paired them with the caged bralette I made, while in college as well. Honestly, college is where I was really inspired to start making clothes. I wanted to go out every other night in college but, I didn’t have money for new outfits all the time, so I started making things! lol This caged bra was actually my first blog post ever, and it’s made out of a regular black bra. If you are interested in making your own you can see the post with instructions, here on the blog!

    Out partying in college I wore the caged bralette with this super mini skirt. However, I think pairing it with pants definitely tones it down! lol

    Another Thrifted Set!!

    Honestly, the vintage sets just find me! lol This set and the floral one (previous post) are my favorites right now. Obviously I love prints and patterns so this set was right up my alley. It’s actually is a size large, but the waist is stretchy so I was able to easily take it in a little and it fit perfectly. I left the shirt as is because I like it over-sized. This set is made out of rayon so its really lightweight, comfortable, and flowy. I think I paid $10-$12 for this set and my shoes are from Public Desire. I like these shoes and love a platform, but even with the platform this heel is very high, and since they only have 2 straps for support you have to be careful walking in them. These are more like a sit down and look cute shoes. lol

    This necklace is one of the first pieces of jewelry I ever made! I remember yeeears ago, taking a jewelry making class at Joanns Fabric, everyone else was making regular boring necklaces and I was making this big tribal-like necklace. lol The teacher kept asking me if I was sure I wanted my necklace like this. I assured her it was exactly what I wanted. lol Although I rarely wear this necklace I still love it and have been randomly making jewelry every since that one class at Joanns! lol
