Thrift Store Upcycle: Crop Top//Matching Shorts Set

Upcycle Project. 1.

 

Hello! I just finished a thrift store upcycle project, and am happy to share it with you all. Hopefully, you will be inspired!

I started by picking up these pair of olive green skinny pants at a thrift store by my house. Very cheap (~$2) and of course, eco-friendly.

I cut them at the right length for shorts. Instead of a hem, I frayed the edges.

The remainder of the legs make the crop top. I ran out of leg fabric however, so I grabbed another pair of thrifted pants which coordinated nicely in color. When completed, I frayed the bottom edge to match the shorts. 

Here it is! If you would like to tackle this project, the crop top tutorial can be found HERE.

NAVEL PENDANT

PLATFORM SHOES

 

Anna of This Beautiful Life is modeling some more great trends. These are trends from Summer 2017, but a great trend can be worn well beyond its appointed time. Don't let a good thing die! And yes, white after labor day is only a crime because it looks so good.

ANNA'S SUMMER TRENDS:

White Shirt Dress

Navel Grazing Pendant

Platform/Flatform Shoes

There are so many variations of these trends. I always say, endless possibility excites me. Incorporating your personal fashion 'loves' into a trending look is a great way to 'catch eyes'. People will tell you that you have something awesome going on with your style. Trust me! Being authentic is the only way to be. You look the greatest bein' you.
