Dress Ups!

by Jessie | Oct 27, 2014

So the girls and I had the best idea evaaaa! Remember how I cleaned up my room over the school break and organised my wardrobe to look like a rainbow? After that, I had a heap of odd clothes (that I just never wear or have grown out of) sitting in a box my mum labeled 'Throw Out'. When I told the girls at school that I still had the box - which I had actually shoved under my bed and hoped to forget about - we came up with so many great ideas! Catherine suggested that we take it to the local charity. Jane said that we could try and re-use some of the garments to make totes unique, second-hand outfits. I thought they were great ideas so I suggested we give them BOTH a try! 

The girls came over to my house after school on Friday and we set to it! Catherine collected the clothes that would be perfect just as they were and would hopefully be loved by the next lucky wearer. Jane got to sorting through all the other bits and pieces that would be super cool with a little tweaking. She even brought some of her own left-over fabrics her mum saved after their dress-making sessions! It was the best Friday afternoon ever! We had a blast making awesome new outfits. It's amazing what a little imagination (and glitter) can do to an old pair of jeans! We could totes become fashion designers! LOL!

Oh, and before I forget...
Mum drove me to the charity the next morning and we gave them a huge bag of those extra clothes Catherine sorted out. They were so grateful and I felt like we had done a really great deed. Mum agreed and said that it's always the best feeling to help others in need! It was then that I resolved to find ways to do it more often. 

What have you done to help others? I would love to get a couple ideas from fellow TG readers! Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time!

    Giving out the clothes for charity is a really good thing to do because it is better than just throwing out the old clothes in your closet. BTW I really like the pic that you guys posted!! toats adorable
