FABULOUS FRIDAY’S Linkup Party- DIY Time, Looks and Always a Challenge!

Did you think I’d let another week go by without a DIY- I’m trying not to!  I may not post one every single week…but would you believe me if I told you I have a basket filled to the brim just waiting for me to transform what’s in it?  Yes, it’s true. 

Oh well, one thing at a time. Today, I’m gonna show you what used to be pants- and how they became a top!  Because they were mid-calf, I decided to give some length by adding some black lace. Then I cut the crotch part and turned that into the neckline.  Sewed up all hems and flipped my garment bottom- up- and there it was:  A brand new top!!

Check out my fun reel. 

Next, This week I joined a challenge for ‘trends in your closet’ on Instagram.  This one encourages you to shop what you own and find something that’s trending right now.  There’s a list.  So, I basically ticked off a few boxes with 70’s leather, a vest, and texture!  Here’s one look:

I also got to style up a fantastic Joseph Ribkoff top for 1ere Avenue.  I’m super crazy about this peacock color!!  And- the fit is soo good.  It’s part of their Fall collection, but honestly, this one can be worn all year-round (well at least here in Montreal it can!)

Besides that, still trying to finish up reading Jean-Claude Poitras’ book (Montreal designer 60’s-90’s).  Note: It’s in French. Looking forward to posting a review if I can ever find time to finish it!!

And, if you’re into horoscope fashion, this week I wrote a post on Libra Fashion! You can read that here:

I want to say a big Thank you to Jess of Elegantly Dressed and Stylish for featuring me! These silver booties were the stars of my monthly collab for the Thrifty Six. And also a big Thank you to Michelle of My Bijou Life Online for featuring me wearing this shocking pink jacket (turns out it was quite the hit!)

And now onto my Favourite Fashionista Diva from last week’s Linkup Party is…Andrea from Living on Cloud Nine9 for her exquisite look! How gorgeous is this jumpsuit?!! So feminine and chic- and that colour is so perfect on her! Double whammy for the handbag that pairs that look so stylishly- they were made for each other. Love!!

My Favourite Linkup Read of the Week was by, Beth of Sass For Short for her post : Scent of the Season – What’s Good for You
