With just $20 in her pocket, Alida from Alida Makes made this whole outfit for her son out of thrift store purchases. The look (and the $20 thrift store quest) was inspired by the Macklemore song. The long sleeved tee is made from two shirts, and the faux fur hooded vest used to be a girl’s fur coat. Love it! She shares a quick tutorial showing how she converted the coat to the vest, no sewing required. Go to her blog for the how-to and to see how far she came in under the $20 goal.
