The above represents a historic outfit - the last storebought piece of clothes I bought and the most recent. The coat I got at TJ Maxx late last winter on clearance for $30.* The shoes I bought last week on clearance at K Mart for $11.63. Nine months is pretty good for not having bought one new thing.
So I'm taking the Wardrobe Refashion pledge after the fact. The Refashion pledge is a committment to not buying any new clothes for a period of two to six months and instead to reuse, recycle or refashion existing clothes. I might sign up for real after my JCPenney order of French cuff white shirts comes in. (I'm kind of all spendy at the moment.)
As a side point, you've probably seen 'make a room from this outfit' and/or 'make an outfit from this room' (which I think was first popularized by Domino magazine.) Here I present you 'make an outfit from a couch.'
My scribble raincoat has the same pattern as Mod Green Pod's Aspire fabric ($40 a yard.), which was featured on this cool re-upholstery job from Design*Sponge last spring. Picture me lounging on in wearing my raincoat. (If it doesn't make you dizzy.)
*The 'suggested retail price' was $300. I'm such a sucker for 'suggested retail.'
