Some Fashions Never Go Out of Style: Volume 1

By no means am I a fashionista...I'm more like a wanna-be recyclista.  "What's that?" you ask.  It's someone who wants to wear timeless fashions made from things she found headed for the landfill or someone's yard sale.  I'm not always successful and that is most likely because I haven't really tried it much.  I've decided to change all that.  I will be telling you about fashions from the past, their updated counterparts and I how I hope to make it happen.  I'll keep you updated on the progress.

LBD (Little Black Dress):  This is a Coco Chanel creation.  It will be around forever.

A few months back...ok, maybe a year ago...I picked up a magazine because it had the most adorable LBD on the cover made from two men's black tuxedo shirts.  I recently unearthed from the craft room abyss
rediscovered this magazine and am anxious to try it out.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find any info on this article online so you will have to take my word for it that it's adorable.  Now I just need to find two black tuxedo shirts in a size that will fit this curvaceous figure of mine.


  1. The LBD is awesome. Every woman needs one in her closet.

  2. I can't wait until you can make that LBD - that sounds like a really CUTE idea!! Have a great weekend!!!!

  3. instead a lbd my will be a bbd = big black dress! the bean is asleep on my chest!

  4. Cindi, Cindi, Cindi, you sure made my heart swell with pride with the comment about God blessing us. You are so right. The most wonderful thing about the blog world is how I see what God had done through it. How he has used it to bring people together, to heal aches, to bring smiles to the isolated or lonely and most of all to share his word. It There are feels wonderful to be around so much love and kindness when we are mostly bombarded with so much negativity.

    Thanks again for my first award and all your loving support and kindness. You are a gift!

    And I love those new LBD because they have such a beautiful vintage style. I especially love the chiffon.

    Have a fun weekend. xxxooo's....Tracy :)

  5. Gosh I should no better than to try to say anything at 3am. That one sentence should have been.....
    Itt feels wonderful to be around so much love and kindness when we are mostly bombarded with so much negativity.

    Now I'd better go to bed...

  6. I agree that you just can't beat the timeless stuff! I have never been able to pull off anything trendy, but those go-to pieces in my closet always work!

  7. Everyone need a LBD and I can't wait to see yours!


Let your voice be heard!
