Revival Files: Peachy Keen


Total Cost = $4

This thrift find is one of the only good things that came out of our Vegas trip. Well that and learning that apparently you can make decent money on the street  if you buy a hamster and then make people pay you to pet it. I mean hey if you can convince people that your hamster (that has the undeniable talent of standing, you know something my coffee table can do) is the crem de la crem then I guess you deserve a buck. You know what would have really been wonderful though, if we all paid a dollar and then the hamster started to rap and break it down like in this car commercial...and que my day dreams of dancing hamsters. I'll just be over here wishing that hamsters could actually do the hamster dance.

  7. Whoa! You ADDED sleeves?! I'm used to people altering old clothes by REMOVING stuff. Adding seems way harder. But you gotta live up to your blog name right?
    You're a genius. A pure, fashion-fairy genius.

  11. I love the sleeves! I get dresses from the goodwill out here on the east coast and can't figure out how to add the sleeves and make it more modest! Takes forever to figure out. How'd you do it??

  17. So I just watched "Julie and Julia" and in a scene from Paris in the 1950's there was a gal who had a dress VERY similar to this fine piece of work you've created although I confess I like yours much, much better...you look DIVINE!
