Wardrobe Revamp Week 5: Bib Necklace

It's week five of my mission to revamp my wardrobe one outfit at a time, one week at a time. My goal is to grown-up-ify my clothing, plus have some element of every outfit be made by me!

This week I started with this outfit: cute, but plain (as are most of the things I wear!). Needed to be jazzed up. Last week, my creative friend Moira and I got together to talk about crafty biz, and she was wearing a bib necklace that she made out of magazine pages. Since then, I've been seeing bib necklaces everywhere, and I found this tutorial for inspiration.

So, tah dah! My very own bib necklace made from t-shirt scraps, scraps of felt, and fancy buttons from grandma's button box. (Remind me, if I ever record a CD, that this could be the cover art).

I have to say, I'm really enjoying feeling fancy at work. Yesterday I even caught myself thinking about the merits of...wearing heels. Wow. And since I started work, I haven't worn the same outfit twice. I'm going to see how long I can run with that. It's much easier now that I've given myself this challenge - instead of opening my closet and thinking: "Errr, I don't want to wear that," I think: "Hm, how can I make that work?"


  1. Cute! I've been all into fabric rosette flowers that last few days... love how to combined those with a different style flower to make a really cute look. You're right, too, awesome album cover. What will your title / band name be?

  2. Very cool blog Carole Ann! I'm enjoying watching the outfit transitions! :)

  3. Thanks Kate! Let me know if there's anything in particular that you want to see here. I'm open to suggestions!
