Second hand clothing stores seem to be popping up everywhere now. It has become popular, not to mention a huge money saver, to buy second hand clothing. I have a few things that I have bought with the intention of reworking them.

The first is a sweater. I found a nice black sweater but it needed a little something. So I looked at the magazines that I had lying around for inspiration. Bows are very popular this season. I love a large oversized bow. This black sweater needed a bow. I didn’t want to permanently attach it to the sweater because it would be hard to wash. The bow is pinned on so it can be taken off and wear on another outfit (I haven’t done that yet up I know I will.) The fabric is some extra purple stain that I had in my stash.

I also make a couple of necklaces out of some old broken pieces.

The blue and purple beads were all part of one necklace but it some broken. I attached then to the piece of antique goldish hardware. I think that the gold piece is actually decorative home decor but I thought it would look good as a necklace.

This is actually 4 necklaces that I looped together. I have seen multi strand pearl necklaces all over the place but this only cost $2.
