{DIY} Flare to Straight Leg Jeans

Not only did I rediscover the trench coat dress in the other closet, I also found jeans that I absolutely loved when I thrifted them. The fit was great on my waist and hips. No back gap and the waistband is just below my belly button. The legs had a little more flare than I wanted and they were too long for the stumps. I gave them a straight leg and a shorter length with a pretty simple diy.

Revive or Recycle the Trench Coat Dress

When you find a dress that's part cape and part trench coat at the thrift store, you must buy it. That's what I told myself 3 years ago. Never wore it. It's one of the forgotten about pieces. The ones I say I'm going to totally revamp, refashion, and revive then relegate them to second closet. Second closet is a mix of stuff to sell or mend. I rarely go in there these days.

Sun-Dried Tomato + Goat Cheese Egg Muffins

The first time I made egg muffins were for the Party Bus Thrift Up. They were a big hit and I've been making a version of the sun-dried tomato and goat cheese ones ever since. You don't have to use goat cheese or cheese at all. You can use a different mixture of veggies. It's pretty much whatever's clever. Sausage. Bacon. Both. Double up on the veggies. It's all up to you.
