Lovin' Whatcha Got

My post today is all about lovin' whatcha got.  I'm a curvy plus size chica, and I struggle with finding clothing that make me feel playful and flirty.  The pieces to which I'm referring, are the tiny boutique sizes, you know the ones I'm talking about, the reeeeeally cute shabby chic styles?!  I just adore cloths like that, and unfortunately, I don't find many pieces like that in a plus size.  The crazy thing, is they're really simple designs, light fabrics, not a whole lot to 'em.  I recently found a line, Perch by Blu Pepper that is so unbelievably cute, it kills me.  Any of course the two boutiques that carry it are in Truckee and Cambria...vacation spots, but not local ones.  So, occasionally I treat myself to these oh so cute Perch pieces, but so often find myself wanting more more more.  You can only wear the same cardi so many times in a week before people start wondering if you own more clothing, teehee.  So, I've been playing with making some of my own.  I adore wearing really stylin' cardigans with simple tanks, but would love to wear more simple colored cardigans with some hot mama tanks.  So, I took a couple of my favorite dresses, that I no longer fit into (too short now), cut them and embellished them with vintage lace and eyelet.  I'm just thrilled with how they came out, and I would so encourage anyone to do the same. I think the other thing that thrilled me, was I'm re-using what I've got.  I have a ton of clothing that I love, don't want to get rid of, but that simply don't fit right anymore.  Mostly because they're just a bit shorter in the torso, hmmm not sure how that happened. Teehee.  So these are my two little shabby tops, and I'm so proud of them.  Absolutely cannot wait to wear 'em!  I'm currently in the process of making lacey flowers to add to them.  I'll make it a brooch/hair clip combo, so I can put in my hair if I want.  Love the versatility...and adore the way I feel with a flower in my hair.  As for my "skinny girl" jeans...the ones I sooo hope to get back into one day.  I'm leaving those alone.  I WILL get back into them one day:P
