the fifty-cent cardigan make-over

It doesn't get cheaper or easier than this:

One cardigan from Salvation Army (on their 50% off day): $0.50


Remove buttons add sew on some vintage lace trims given to you by a friend (Thanks again Shanda!)


I don't know if I love the gathers right on the bust but for pocket change and less than 15 minutes time spent, I'll take it!


The same day I bought this cardigan, I scored a super cute pair of trouser jeans for $2.50. $2.50!! I could hardly believe it.

Have a great weekend friends!!

You always find such cute things at the thrift stores! I want to go shopping with you. Do you go with or with out the fam?

Our salvation army is tiny and filled with complete junk. But our goodwill is pretty good. The way they have the clothes though isn't great so it takes years to sort through. I recently found my first thrift store shirt. It retails for $80 and I got it for $2.60!

One of my New Year Resolutions is to comment on all the amazing blogs I lurkingly read. Yours is great--and I love your make-overs! I am a thrift-shopper, too, and have been inspired by the fun things you have done. Thanks for sharing your tips, fun fashions, and inspiration. (And I like the gathers on this sweater, and your lace rocks and makes it work!)

Nice transformation. Especially love the little stuff along the neckline! So, I assume this counts as your refashion for this week? : )

I think it accentuates the goods up top, and who doesn't love that? It's darling by the way.

Goodness, can we go thrifting together sometime? You get some of the coolest things. I love your refashions. So fun.

This cardigan (with the gathering) reminds me of a coat I saw at anthro. The gathering was in the same spot and it was grey. It was also $300. Sheesh.

Wow it's amazing how much a little piece of lace helps that cardigan! Very cute.
