Autumn chills? Appliqués and frills!
I love it when Autumn rolls in, especially in Houston since we finally start getting a break from the muggy summer heat. I can’t tell you how nice it is to step outside my front door in the morning and feel the cool fall air greet me! This is definitely my favorite time of the year! If only the cool would linger a bit longer during the rest of the day, but you take what breaks you can get, right?
Anyway, I’ve had to start digging my lightweight coats out from the depths of my closet, some of which I’ve had for years and are a bit drab now… even a denim jacket from high school was still in there. That got me to thinking about buying new fall clothes, but on a tight budget, why buy new clothes when the old ones just need a bit of sprucing up?
This great jacket was designed by Angela Anderson, one of our designers, and it definitely draws more attention than a plain denim jacket. Relatively easy to do, all you need is a Macey Flower Trim, Eyelash Trim, Feather Trim, fabric glue, and some paint!
A bit too flashy for you? Try using a more streamlined trim, like our Faux Leather Gimp Trim or add toggles and buttons instead of painting designs. You can add spice to any outfit for a little bit of money and time.
Speaking of spice, time to go bake some pumpkin spice bread… another thing I love about this time of year! Come to think of it, if I make too much bread I might have to go ahead and buy more clothes anyway… that fit!
