Wow!! It’s been waaaaay to long since my last post. I guess I took a hiatus of sorts to be with my husband who returned from overseas but I think I’m back now 🙂

This post came about because my husband was doing some spring cleaning and wanted to throw away perfectly good shirts…and belts. I thought to myself, “that’s crazy! there isn’t anything wrong with these shirts.” For kicks I decided to do a post showing you can basically make anything work regardless of the original intent. I used his long sleeve collared shirts in various ways. The objective here is to not take your fashion/style too serious; have fun with it!

This 1st look was paired with jeans, tucked and bow tied..


The 2nd look was paired with dress slacks, sweater and a belt..


The 3rd look was worn as a skirt w/a simple top and belt..

My last and 4th look was worn as a micro-mini dress, paired with a mini skirt, fun necklace and cool polka dot shoes! MY FAV LOOK 😀


So there you have it ladies! Next time your man tries to throw away his long sleeve collared shirts STOP HIM! YOU just might look better in them than he did..LOL… 🙂
OK, I hope not to let too much time pass before I post again. It was fun! If you do try this post a pic on my FB page! love to see how you rock your man’s shirt! Byeeeeeeeee

    jarrod - show how you tied and wrapped the shirts. This was a very sexy way of using shirts we get rid of.ReplyCancel

    Lenny White - Obviously I’m doing something wrong. I’ve had my shirts laundried, dry cleaned, laundried and dry cleaned myself and they have never ever looked like the shirts in this blog. I’m either requesting too much starch or not “enuff” Latrenia!!!ReplyCancel
