I love crochet and I don't know about you, but I can not get enough. I always say, that if I were skinny and rich, I would be shopping at Free People buying up all of their darling crochet pieces! Dammit Free People, make a line for the plus girls, please!! Anywho, I look at their site occasionally and longingly and think about what I can make or buy that would be similar. Well, I think I got sort of close. With the passing of my Nana a few months ago, I have been helping my Papa clean out alot of her stuff and I always come across some funky jewelry, vintage clothing, retro bags and other beautiful things that she collected over her 91 years. As the only grand-daughter and the oldest, I get first dibs.
I found this beautiful lace/crochet table cloth, aged to perfection with a slight yellowing discoloration. I would have happily put it on my dining room table, but there was a hole in the center. I channeled my inner creative-resourceful-hippie and turned it into a tunic.
DIY: I made the hole bigger to fit around my head and rest on my shoulders and put a belt around it. VOILA! I have gotten so many compliments on it, and I am kinda embarrassed letting them know where... or how I got it.
Tunic: Nana's old tablecloth. DIY
Leggings: Torrid size 2
Cami: Torrid size 2
Belt: From and old dress
Sandals: Torrid size 10
Necklaces: Vintage and gifted
Also, I had to share this because I was so hoping to be included for this!
Plus Model Magazine came out with their bridal issue! Guess who made page 115?!
My husband and I are going to be celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary in July and I still feel like are just dating. I still get butterflies!
I hope you all have a wonderful day, I am just finishing up my lunch and it's back to work.
