Fabulous Finds and Fashions

Hello! I have a few things to share with you today. I little bit of finds and a little bit of fashion!

I am not sure where this deer came from, but he is so cute! I knew I wanted to use it for a jewelry dish. I was at a thrift store last week and didn’t see any plates I thought would work, but then I saw one of the employees start to empty a cart full of dishes. I wandered around the store a little more and then came back and there was the perfect plate! White with little gold dots. I brought it home and then spray painted the deer gold and glued it on.

The perfect little accessory for my dresser!

These next two outfits were designed around the shoes. My daughter bought these for me a couple of years ago for my birthday. Of course, I had told her to go get them!! Anyways, they are a little more difficult to wear because of the stripes, but I think I found a couple of cute ways to wear them.

First I went a little more nautical or patriotic. A white t-shirt, red pants, denim jacket and a white and red anchor scarf. I even have a red and white striped purse a picked up from a yard sale several years ago.

The other outfit is a little more neutral and traditional. Khaki slacks, navy blue lace top and a navy and pink scarf. I picked up this scarf at Disneyland this past summer and haven’t had a chance to wear it yet. I love it! I love this outfit with the little bit of bright pink.

There we go! Two new outfits for me to wear! I love putting different things together with the items I already own. I will see if I can come up with more for the next time!

Fabulous Finds and Fashions

Welcome to another edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.   Now, this post has both a fabulous find, and a fabulous fashion.

First on the docket, this absolutely adorable box that I found at Ross.  It was actually in the kids section, but who cares?  It isn’t that big, but it’s big enough to hold the items that I am selling on Poshmark so that I don’t accidentally wear them again.  I love the girl with all of her bags, and then the puppy is so tiny and cute!  It has handles on the side that makes it easy to carry and move around.  And it was only $7!

P.S.-if you want to follow me on Poshmark, find me at @2smallofacloset

Fila tennis shoes

My fabulous fashion is a pair of pink Fila tennis shoes that I also purchased from Ross.  They are so comfortable and perfect to wear to work.  And honestly, the only reason I purchased them was because I absolutely needed them (my previous tennis shoes had multiple holes in it and they needed to be thrown away).  I only paid $20 for these shoes and they are a great investment.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions.  I hope that you enjoyed this post and hope to see you later in the week!


A Project That Has Taken Almost A Year

So, a small disclaimer that this project is yet to be completed.  But, I will show you what I have completed so far, and tell you what I plan on doing with it.  Hopefully I can get this project done in the near future.

This project started from an idea that I found while exploring the wonders of the internet.  I had Googled a term that I search very often when I am bored: ‘recycled outfits’.
I like to see what other people have created and try to see if there is a possibility of me trying to create my own.

And while on one of my Google searches, I found my newest project.  People have created dresses with cupcake liners.  And they look amazing!

So, I took up the challenge to create my own version.

I had some white fabric that I had left over from other projects that I used as a simple long skirt.  I plan on attaching a top for a dress, but this is just a small portion of what the skirt looks like so far.

The cupcake liners have all been cut in half to help make the skirt have a scale like look.  And each and every cupcake liner has been hot glued to the fabric to give it this look.  They still have some maneuverability, but for the most part, the skirt is pretty stiff.


I am really excited to see how the whole dress turns out.

Now, this isn’t the first dress that I have recycled.  My senior year in high school I made a jean dress for a 4-H recycled project.  I used 26 pairs of jeans that I purchased from thrift stores and made this beautiful dress.  I love the ombre look of the skirt, which is good since the dress weighs 10 pounds!

So these are some of my recycled outfits.  I love to see what I can come up with and see how the dress turns out.  I can’t wait to see how the final product turns out and I can’t wait to show you as well!


Fabulous Finds and Fashions

Good morning everyone! Welcome to the first edition of Fabulous Finds and Fashions. We are very excited to be starting this and can’t wait to see what the future holds!

So we are going to be starting off with some fabulous fashions. I went ahead and took some pictures of some of the outfits I have worn to school so you can get a sense of my fashion style.

1. Comfy Plaid


Now I know I wore a very similar outfit in the fabulous fall fashion post, but it is too good to not show again. This outfit is a Faded Glory men’s shirt that I purchased from Walmart for $10. The jeans are Forever 21 that I purchased for $20 (wouldn’t it have been funny if I bought them for $21?!).  The white tank top is Route 66 that I purchased from Sears for $5.  And I purchased the Qupid boots from a local discount store for $15.  This outfit is very comfortable and is something that I would wear everyday if I could.  But, that’s not exactly sanitary.

2. Sailing Out to Sea


I love how this outfit looks!  It looks cute and it may be perfect for going out on a yachting trip.  The American Eagle jacket was purchased from a yard sale a few years ago for something around the price of $5.  The pink Danskin shirt came from Walmart for $10.  These are the same Forever 21 jeans (I like to reuse the same jeans for most of my outfits).  I finished the outfit with a pair of Maurices boots that I got for Christmas for $40.  Of course the sparkly boots, which I would consider the centerpiece of the outfit, are the most expensive.  Perfection? Probably.

So these are two of my fabulous fashions that I have worn to school.  They are cute, fabulous, and perfect for everyday wear.  I hope that you enjoyed this edition of the Fabulous Finds and Fashions and hope to see you here next time.


Corner News-January 30, 2016

Welcome to another edition of the Corner News.  A post where new things are presented and old news is brought back into the limelight.

In old news, I started back to school…hooray…  Only two more semesters.  Only two more semesters to go.  I am so close to being done with classes and I just want it to be over now.  But, I have now started to take my knitting to school because I have time between classes.  So, why not take my knitting?


And in new news, I am going to be starting my own blog in a few weeks.  It is called Too Small of a Closet, because in reality it’s true.  It is going to be a fashion blog and I am really excited to get it started.  I won’t be posting anything soon, but it will let you all know when the blog has posts on it.

Double Watermark

And that’s what has happened these past two weeks.  I hope you all have a great weekend and I can’t wait to see you soon!
