Happy Pride, everyone!
Speaking of which, I really wanted to get one of Old Navy’s Pride-themed t-shirts this year. I don’t know why it became such a quest for me, but I must’ve gone in at least half a dozen times over two weeks to two different Old Navy stores in Chicago. The last time I went into the State St. store, they had four left: two designs, all men’s size Large.
I decided I’d get one and somehow modify it to fit and look cute. Here’s the before:
What to do? While I can handle a needle and thread enough to sew a button back on, I wanted this to involve nothing but scissors and maybe safety pins, which seemed like a fun thing for Pride. I looked up modifications online and watched a few YouTube vids for ideas but ultimately ended up making something I hadn’t been able to find anyone else explaining. Maybe it’ll help you too!
Happy Halloween! It’s been an eventful weekend already, full of shenanigans and dancing and drinks and friends and fun. And I did it all in this:
I give you: Cara the Care Bear!
Cheer Bear, as a matter of fact.
Ok, so it’s a different shade of pink, but finding a pink sweatsuit was more difficult than anticipated. Keep reading to see how I made it and/or scroll to the bottom for a few more finished pics.
Regular readers of this blog may have noticed that, in addition to telling you where I got something and sometimes how much it cost, I usually also try to include what size I’m wearing. Perhaps some of you like that aspect (my roommate, for one, told me she likes it), while others may be wondering, “What’s up with that? Why does she do that?”
You might also think, since I make a point to try to include sizes, that size is obviously really important – when in fact my inclusion of it is actually to prove just the opposite (sort of). Let me explain.
There is nothing whatsoever remarkable about this look:
Simple argyle cardigan and jeans.
