Trend Watch: Summer Shorts

Now that it’s finally nice and toasty warm outside

it’s time to put those sexy legs into a pair of super trendy shorts!

Who knew there are sooooo many options these days?

Check these out:

And after being inspired by this post from WhoWhatWear,

I went on the hunt inside our stores …

just look at what I found so far:

You know what’s even better than finding an AWESOME bargain on all the latest summer styles?

Getting a bargain on your bargain!  Am I right?

With that being said, all Spring and Summer merchandise goes 20% off as of June 1st!

That’s this Friday people!

See you at Stuff ~ 😉

In Awe of Restructuring

Maybe it’s because I’m not gifted in this way, but I am in total awe of others that have the vision and the talent to take recycled clothing and turn it into something completely different!

Like Stuff shopper, Megan Clark, from Sigourney.

I was in my office working away yesterday when I overheard Megan explaining to her young son what she was doing,

“I’m buying clothes that I can make into something else.”

“oh” he quietly responds.

But my ears perk up and I think … ‘I gotta meet this girl!’

Now, it’s always awkward approaching a complete stranger as you try to explain that you weren’t really eavesdropping, but you couldn’t help overhearing her comment.  Megan was very kind and when I asked if she would be willing to send me some pictures of her creations, she said “What about these?”

No way! Legwarmers made out of a sweatshirt!!!!  BRILLIANT Megan!!!

Seriously!

Absolutely brilliant!  I. Love. Them!

When I asked if I could take her picture, she kindly obliged and mentioned that the sweater she was wearing (and so stylishly belted, I might add) was once a men’s sweater that she restructured to have pockets and a trendy flair.

love. the. whole. darn. thing! (isn’t she adorable?)

Thank you, Megan!

For sharing your talents (and for not thinking I’m some creepy basement lady listening in on mother /son conversations).

I look forward to featuring more of Megan and her restructured fashions here on Stuff Happens.

Be a Beach Beauty Anywhere

Flipping through a magazine while drinking my morning coffee on this yet-another-rainy-gloomy-gray-day, I came across this feature about chic ways to cover up on the beach.  First, it got me thinking ‘Man, I gotta get out of Iowa…fast! Before I delve into some deep seasonal depression…’  Then, it got me thinking about all the fantastic beachy items we have in our stores.

Check out these stylish cover-up combos we found at our Stuff Etc Cedar Rapids East store (Blairs Ferry Rd)!  Whether you’re on vacation, the beach, water park, or the local pool, you’re sure to look hot and trendy!  Do you think I could pull it off at the tanning salon??
