So, recently Urban Outfitters had a 75% off the already reduced clearance merch. Wow! I went a little gonzo on the t shirts there. Some were marked $20 and some were marked $10, which means after the discount, they were $5 and $2.50 respectively. Sadly, most of them were size small or medium. I can wear a medium (as long as it doesn't shrink at all) but prefer a large.

I bought a bunch of them anyways. I've reconned 2 so far (have about 6 more to do, lol).

First one:

$5 queen of diamonds shirt. Size medium. Added black strips (which you can't even tell are there) on the sides and bright blue sleeves (which I cut from a thrifted blue shirt with an embroidered snowman on it). It was going to be a hoodie originally, but I liked it without so I left it off.


Second one:

$2.50 fysko shirt. Size small (fit like an extra small). Added black stips to the sides all the way from the hem of the sleeves to the bottom hem and then added red to make the sleeves longer. Both the red and the black came from the t shirt graveyard (aka my scrap pile). I heart this shirt. The black sides make me look a bit slimmer through the waist. Very flattering.


I love bargains.

Thanks for looking Cheesy

If I was ever stranded on a deserted tropical island, within a month I'd have built my own Craft Store and have trained monkeys to work the registers.

I heart personal swaps.

Queen of Diamonds- Sophisticated, Fair Haired flirt. Easily attracts men, likes to meddle in things that is none of her concern.

Or at least that's what my tarot card sheet says. ^_^
Good Job on both!

Lol! Totally doesn't describe me. If it said something like "spazzoid, frizzy haired tomboy. Easily attracts bees and wasps, likes to fix things that aren't broken." THEN it'd be right on the money.
