Have you heard the story of Marisa Lynch who turns used dresses into new hip dresses for a dollar a day?
Her story is modeled after Julie and Julia, the book and movie that featured a blogger cooking a recipe from Julia Child’s and then writing about it daily. Her story is similar she wanted to find something to do everyday that would give her meaning and purpose, not too mention bring some fun back into her life.
After seeing the movie one night and having been recently fired from her job, Marisa gave herself a challenge. The challenge was to make a cute new hip dress every day out of a vintage dress found in thrift shops. She has since amassed quite a collection on her blog and as of this writing; has created, photographed, styled, modeled, up-cycled and written about more than 200 dresses.
How does she do it? She sources her “fashion disasters” at thrift shops around town, then gets inspiration from magazines or her own head and recycles the dress into something fun, unique and fashion forward. See all her vintage finds at New Dress A Day.
