Awesome Finds: My Mommas Closet

Black faux leather across the body skinny strap bag.

Black leather clutch with gold chain.

Brown Leather Clutch

I used to make fun of my mom for wearing her pants so high up her waist, now I like them for shorts! So I cut some of her old pants into high-waisted shorts.

Check out these blue pastel shorts! Hahaha I think these are pretty sweet.
Might I add... the belt is from my boyfriends closet!
I'm Taking every ones old clothes/accessories.

I was looking for old shirts I could cut off the shoulder, instead I found this cute gray silk onesie! I was like "whoa mom this is cute, can I have it?!" She responded with..."As long as you don't wear it around Evan..."
Hahaha I was like wait... I don't think I'm going to wear it the same way you did back in the day... Not so much as lingerie, but perfect with a high-waisted skirt!

I also found this old Neiman Marcus shirt. I don't know what was up with this thing, but it went down to my ankles! Like a 10x Tall-T.
I decided to cut it and make it into a dress, just added a belt to cinch the waist!

Seriously, go through your mom's, aunt's, grandma's or any older persons closet!
It's fun and you can find some pretty cool things :)

  3. LOL yeah when i asked my mom for her really high waisted jeans, she was like "you used to make fun of me for wearing those!!" the brand is... Cest Joli haha i think its from a cheap store she never buys expensive things!
