Around Thanksgiving my baby brother James and his girlfriend Virginia surprised my family with the news that they would be getting married Christmas Eve.
While the fact that they would be getting married was not a surprise (they have only been “dating” since 6th grade or so), the fact that the formal wedding was only 30 days away was a surprise.
And like any girly girl my first thought was “What will I wear?”
And since it is Christmas time which is usually very expensive I set out to make my outfit as inexpensive as possible.
I purchased this jumpsuit from Target which I thought was really cute and appropriate for a formal evening wedding.
But unfortunately it had REALLY ugly buttons on it (not pictured in the photo online). They looked like spikes from a dog collar.
So I took a trip to Hobby Lobby for some buttons for about $2.
I simply replaced the buttons and had a new outfit for the wedding for under $25!
And of course I forgot to get a picture of myself in the outfit but I promise it was cute :)
Congrats James and Virginia!
