Today’s Reader ReFash comes from a land down unda! :) I love how I’ve met so many cool Aussies through the blogosphere, and I hate to play favorites…but Erica is one of my favorites. :)
She’s the clever lady behind Recycled Fashion, where she shows you have to be eco-fabulous in all of your fashion endeavors. :)
Maternity clothes are expensive…and not always that attractive. Not to worry! Erica knows how to work a thrifted frock into a totally non-matronly maternity marvel!
Finding a secondhand garment that actually fits during late stage of pregnancy is quite remarkable, and in this instance, finding a forgiving stretchy jersey dress happened to be a real treat.
This navy dress is not officially a maternity garment, it is a ‘Myer Direct’ 70’s/80’s jersey frock. Bonus when the label reads ‘Made in Australia’; you know you’re onto an original rather than modern day ‘vintage‘ copy, being that hardly any retail clothing brands are actually made in the country anymore.
I don’t just love the refashion, I also love how she’s accessorized the outfit with that fun flower, nice boots, and a cute beret!
You can read her full tutorial right here.
Erica just recently gave birth to her adorable little fella, so why don’t you wish her a hearty congrats as well? :)
