Last week, on Halloween, I took my MIL for an eye appointment and decided to wear this…
I must admit, I kinda sorta felt like this upcycled hoodie was a bit on the costume-y side.
To me, for some reason, it reminds me of something the Beatles wore back in the day.
My son asked me why I was wearing doilies.
When my MIL saw me she said, “Oh, I didn’t recognize you. You look like a little girl.”
That’s when I realized that this looks Victorian. After all, my MIL was born in 1926 and I’m guessing that this was in style when SHE was a little girl?!
Either way, I fit right in with my ‘costume’. 😉
Here is Adam, on the far right (with his co-workers) as the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland.
He and I put his costume together for $20 with pieces from Savers, of course! I even convinced ‘Alice’ to buy her costume from Savers. She had never stepped foot inside a thrift store before. Needless to say, she was impressed AND overwhelmed, as first time thrifters usually are.
