You guys, I love myself some tweed and was happy to score this blazer at the thrift store several weeks ago:
But tweed with pastel colors just conjure up images of an Easter outfit or something a much more, shall we say, mature woman might wear. I haven't discovered a way to make such a tweed color pattern look a lot chic and hip. So, I got a little scissor happy and made it something a bit more wearable.
This I can handle!! I'll admit that I'm not the most diy kind of gal (and it's a good thing you can't inspect the inside), but hopefully sometime in the future I can have a designated sewing space to get creative. My next project is to make a few friendship bracelets.
I like the way this outfit turned out. I added some extra pattern and color all around. And I would like to note that my bf is so proud of himself for putting me together since he picked the top and told me to change my shoes, lol. He claimed the ones I had on before were boring and these blue babies added a nicely needed pop. What do you think, does he have abilities to be my assistant stylist??? :)
