from blah to yeah {from the racks of the GW Boutique}

 My family loves the GW Boutique (a.k.a. Goodwill.)  We don't have the best Goodwill in the world but every so often we come upon something pretty awesome.  Now, I admit that this does not look awesome--in the least.  It is definitely a blah moment.  So, my mom was pretty lost at where my sister and I saw any sort of potential for this.

 It has--ahem, had--these awful shoulder pads. *shudder*  Why those things were ever "in" is beyond me.  Who wants to look like a football player---unless you actually are one?  It just never made sense to me.

 It was missing a button as well.

The Plan.

And it was turned into THIS!  Thank goodness we dumped those shoulder pads is all I have to say!  haha.  I wore it as my Fourth of July outfit.

Aw that's so cute! I love the blue polka dots! I think it would look good too if you added a thick brown belt! Lovely makeover!!
