Worn Jeans: Bana Republic, both tops: free from a friend’s Goodwill pile, necklace: LOFT, shoes: Butter, handbag: Coach.

Details After getting to know Meredith through her delightful blog Yours, Mine & Ours this week, I realized that I have a couple of freepile items in my own closet.  (Read more about freepile style here) When visiting my friends Rochelle and Nick last week, Rochelle gave me two tops from her Goodwill pile.  Although I kind of like them as is, I think there are some minor alterations I could make to them that would make them a bit better.  I haven’t done anything crafty with them yet, but keep thinking about getting crafty on these and other pieces I’ve picked up at my local Value Village.  There’s little I enjoy more than a great cheap find, but free might take the cake.  Meredith’s redisign of a seriously icky men’s blazer has really got my mind-wheels turning.

Have you ever redesigned anything from the thrift store?
