Since I had a few extra hours to myself on vacation last week, I made sure to get to fixing some vintage items that needed some hemming and mending. This dress had been in that pile for a few months so I was happy to finally fix it up. I wore it twice in one week!!
Another plus to having lots of vintage dresses and skirts to mend is that I don't have a sudden impulse to go shopping or thrifting. Living on a limited budget doesn't lend itself much to weekend jaunts to the thrift stores or malls. I've been treating myself to one or two pieces of vintage or thrifted once a month. It's kind of interesting to see that I really didn't need to spend so much money doing my regular 4-5 trips to the thrifts. It's cool having a new perspective.
