During the Spring, we posted a five-part series called “Christine’s Closet” which highlighted Christine’s shopping prowess and featured some of the beautiful pieces she’s purchased at our Salvation Army Family Stores.

This is my favorite outfit so far. Christine started with one beautiful piece and then created a stunning ensemble with the help of her digital camera, a printer and some fabric paint!
Here’s how it started. On one of her visits to her local Salvation Army store, Christine spied the tulle poking out from the bottom of the skirt as it hung on the rack. When she pulled it out to have a look she noticed the image of the bird and florals and knew she had to have it. So, for the princely sum of $3.99 (not including her discount!), she took it home!
But Christine couldn’t stop there. She wanted a custom design for the top that would bring the whole look together, so she took a photo of the image on the skirt, printed it out on an iron-on transfer, applied it to a white wrap-around top and then filled in and punched up the color with fabric paint!
Have a look at the slideshow below to see how the outfit turned out.
Keep in mind, every gently-used item you donate that can be sold in one of our stores helps fund our no-fee drug and Adult Rehabilitation Centers! Everything you give and purchase allows someone pursue sobriety, wholeness and salvation in the safety of our program.
