Happy Earth Day !!!
This week I have been wearing skirts made from vintage sheets, and unusual materials. I have been battling a stomach bug all week, so today I'm wearing my official Vintage earth day T-shirt! I bought this in the mid-90's because I loved the art work and pink is my favorite color! Today it is "officially" vintage.I'm not sure where it came from originally as I got it at Goodwill. We, as thrifters, are really helping the earth by buying pre-owned clothes,shoes and accessories. The Vintage movement is a very Green thing to do! Grunge was also a time when youth was tired of excess consumerism. What comes around.........
Last night as I was going through my closet ( I finally hit the very back! ), I found 12 pair of vintage Levi's cut-offs! My husband and I both wore these in the 80's. Some have peace sign patches on the butt. My hubs worked for Green Peace way back then, thus the peace signs!
After doing some minimal yard work yesterday, I threw this on.
This Maxi skirt is made from a vintage 70's sheet. My Mom actually made this one. I so love the pretty colors and designs from back then! I paired it with "tough" accessories, but in Summer, it will go with flip-flops, and a jean jacket in the evening. In the Winter I wear them with big,cozy sweaters. She also made 2 pair of pillowcases with the left-overs.
All you need is elastic, thread and cut to the length you want!
Accessories, Black Market Minerals and Kroger!
Yep, Another cowboy hat! I couldn't resist this Peter Grimm hat for 2 dollars.
Don't forget to cut a slit in the bottom side-seam.
Otherwise, you won't be able to walk in them.
Earth Day Every Day ! :)
