New Dress A Day

Marisa at New Dress A Day is nothing short of a genius…she’s also my new hero. The intro to her “about me” page says it all:

So here’s the deal friends, I’m going to be spending the entire year without doing an ounce of traditional clothing shopping. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, “this girl is outta her gourd”, and I completely agree with you.

Each day for the entire year, I’m going to introduce a new piece into my existing wardrobe that I’ve found at flea markets, thrift stores, and neighborhood garage sales.  On top of this, I’m giving myself a budget of only $1 a day.

One person’s trash is becoming my treasure this year.

365 days. 365 items of clothing. 365 dollars. And the blogging begins…

Not only is she incredibly industrious (she’s created some really cute things) but she’s also pretty damn funny. Her site is such an inspiration…I am FOR REAL about to stop shopping retail. Here are some of her more impressive creations.

I hope you check out her blog, and follow along each day like I do. I’m always so excited to see what she’ll make next!

    This girl is awesome and amazingly talented. The last time I sewed two sides of my duffle bag ended up being together.
