Somebody Else's Periwinkle Blue Skinny Jeans, Made Mine

Clothes swaps are a great way to update your wardrobe and be responsible at the same time. I found a pair of ultra-cool skinny jeans at a clothes swap last weekend and made a few alterations to really make them my own.

Re: How to Turn Bed Sheets into Shopping Totes

These bags are so cool! The discussion regarding cutting up collector's items reminds me of the other day when I was at the City Wide Garage Sale in Austin with a friend. I was on the hunt for dresses that I could cut up and reconstruct (my obsession) and happened upon a vintage silk number that had tons of potential. After musing for a few moments on what I would do to it, my friend suggested that it was too precious and old to cut up. It made me wonder, where do we draw the line between fair game and too vintage? I guess it is ultimately a personal choice.

Susan's joke about the dog coats made me crack up.

Deana, you should totally put a swap together with your gals.....and I would love to hear how it goes!

Naughty Secretary, you are so right. The zebra shoes really do deserve a post of their own. I had a feeling that they were once yours! They are so comfy. The other night I rode my bike downtown and went dancing in both the jeans and the shoes.
