Mint Jeans!

I recently found a pair of mint skinny jeans from Urban Outfitters for $20, I wasn't sure how to style them so I haven't worn for awhile. Here is what I decided to do to make my mint jeans perfect for Summer while not being overly dramatic or hipster!

Tie top - Marshalls ($10)

White Button Up - Marshalls ($12), Boden sweater vest from Savers ($2.99), Polka dot wedges from Shoe Central ($5)

What do YOU wear with mint jeans? Do you have any other colored jeans you wear in the Summer?

Retro Refashion!

A couple of weeks ago I won a vintage dress from ebay for $6 (with $6 shipping), so a total of $12. I knew I'd have to alter the sleeves since I don't like long sleeved dresses. However I didn't know I'd have to alter it THIS much!! It was HUGE on me! But anyway, I wanted to share my before and after product:

I altered the sleeves, took in the sides, and then put a couple of pleats in the back to tighten the back area. I was feeling guilty for buying a vintage/thrift store item for $12, when I know I could get it for much cheaper elsewhere. But now i'm excited I got a project out of it as well!
