Give This Women A Set Of Frumpy Outfits, And She’ll Make Something Incredible. How Cool!

The Columbia SC- based writer and designer, Jillian Owens knows you don’t have to spend a lot of money to dress well.  On her blog, Owens publishes a step-by-step tutorial on each of her creations, giving readers a window into her process.

Her blog shows how to take the relatively inexpensive, unfashionable clothes you might find in a thrift store and turn them into trendy outfits that look like they cost a pretty penny.

“A few years ago, I decided I wanted to change the way the world thinks about fashion, I was worried about the impact on our planet as people tossed out their one-time-wear duds more and more quickly.“

Her before and after photos show how she transformed a black funereal frock into a mod cocktail dress, or how a pair of stretchy, lifeless gaucho pants became a slinky, one-sleeved number.
