Über-Chic for Cheap is on Facebook

So, I spent my weekend deconstructing my favorite pair of jeans that are way to big in the waist (let's face it, they are too big everywhere - I bought a size too big because they were an amazing price). I am implementing Susan's tutorial that I posted about Friday and I really think it's going to be good when I finally finish. I, unfortunately, somehow spent 6 hours picking seams and pinning. haha. I decided to take in the entire leg of my pants from waist to hem, and it took longer than I anticipated (as with all of my DIYs). It is finally ready to sew, and by the end of this evening, I am going to be completely in love with my perfectly fitting pants. Hooray.

I also have to tell you guys that I went thrifting for the first time in a long time, and I actually came away a very happy lady. I found an Ann Taylor pencil skirt, new with tags (with an original price of $88 I might add) in my size. I am completely in love with it. I mean I am carrying it around the house with me just so I can look at it. I think my husband is starting to realize how crazy I am. I also found some black leather riding boots for $10 at one of my fav buy sell and trade stores. It was an awesome shopping weekend, I wish you had been there. And so does Steve, because he was there, and not nearly so jazzed about the skirt and boots as I was. haha.

In other news, Über-Chic for Cheap has it's own fancy Facebook page. So, if you're on Facebook (and really, who isn't?) I would love if you would join. I will post updates on sales and deals fairly often, and it will contain information that isn't always posted here. So, check it out!

  1. I have tried thrifting before and one of my favorite new stores is Clothes Mentor. It is a buy and sell shop, but in my area it takes more sophisticated clothes (because of the area it is in.) I wish that we had more thrifting places nearby. Can't wait to see how the pants reconstructing turns out!
