    So, I'm looking for an original skirt I can wear to a party that I was invited to last weekend, something that's guaranteed to stand out. (You know how it is, you go to a party, you want people to notice that you're there, right?)

    I was thinkin and thinkin, and of course, I'm tight on cash, so whatever I buy has to be really inexpensive.... so I thought I'd make my own outfit! I collected a bunch of old pairs of jeans that my husband and I are about to throw out, and initially I was going to make a patchwork jean skirt.... but then I had a funkier idea...

    I cut out all the butt pockets from all the jeans, and I also bought a few pairs of jeans from a thrift store, cutting out all the but pockets from those as well, and I cut a buttonfly from one of the pants as well. Sewn together so all the pockets face up, I have a skirt of all pockets, it's so cool! I only wish I had a digital camera to post a picture of it... trust me, it looks so awesome!

    Thats so cool. But now when you go out all your friends will be like, can you put my stuff in your pockets? Thats what my friends would do!
