Hack for Old Clothes

I have been on a mission to cleanse my closet of clothes that no longer suit me by sorting through every article of clothing and deciding whether to keep, donate, sell, or alter. In this process, I found so many shirts that I LOVED but the silhouette was too long (because I used to wear a lot of long shirts with skinny jeans). So I took a handful of shirts to the tailor (if in NYC, I love Alteration Specialists — across the street from our apartment!) with high waisted pants and asked them to crop them. Yep, a 40 something year old wearing cropped shirts. I am so happy to recycle (upcycle!) clothes and I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe. Take a look at my awkward selfies in cropped shirts — and I highly recommend the process of making new from something old! Here they are!

 

I love this shirt and finally have so many different pants that it will work with.

Side view.

Old flannel, new look.

The look of the back.

HELLOOOOO more awkward selfies.

(pants are too low waisted here, but you get the point). I have had this shirt for 15 years and I am so happy with the new changes.

 

Simple, inexpensive, and fun. I love my new tops and feel like I went shopping! I hope you have a great week! Happy November!
