OOTD- Polka Dots and Repurposing

It's been a looooong week but we made it through - and with a champion on the family! My daughter's team WON the tournament! My boys team played awesome, just didn't pull out the win. I'm beat and spending this week catching up around here.

My CAbi party was a huge success! I earned 11 half price items and $75 CAbi dollars! I certainly couldn't use all of that myself, so I gave some half-price items to my friends and bought myself 4 things (major restraint)! Can't wait to get my goods! I love so much of the fall line. I love CAbi for it's great mix and matching ability, super comfy fabrics and awesome fit. I am sold. Seriously, I think I could never shop again and be happy just buying a few CAbi pieces each season - and that is saying a LOT for a hobby shopper like me!

I did snag a great "Easy Care Merona" dress at Target for $6. It totally reminded me of a CAbi dress and I can throw it in a suitcase and it won't wrinkle a bit! I haven't been to Target in like 3 weeks! That is a record for me. I don't even recognize the items on markdown!


I wasn't digging the "fringe" on this sweater, so I decided to re-purpose it instead of getting rid of it -I simply cut off the fringe!

On the model in real life. Nice bluetooth - what a biz-ness woman!

    That dress is gorgeous! I'm totally jealous! I love how you cut the fringe off too, that's a great idea. :)
