Since I had my wedding in the fall in Minnesota, I wanted to have some type of sweater to stay warm in case the weather didn’t turn out. And, of course I fell completely in love with this Anthropologie sweater that I’d seen on the blog Green Wedding Shoes:
But, after looking for weeks, not only did I establish that Anthropologie no longer had the sweater, but I couldn’t even find it on ebay, or anywhere else for that matter! Despite being devastated, I came up with plan B: Make the sweater myself.
So, First, I found a ballet-style wrap sweater at Old Navy in almost the exact same color that was on sale for $4.00!
Then, I just bought two packs of these flower pins from H&M for $4.00 each:
Lastly, the best part is, Old Navy also had the same sweater in navy blue for $4.00 a piece that I bought for all of my bridesmaids! So, here is the final result, my $12.00 Anthro Knock-off!
I personally think it turned out pretty darn well! Not to mention, it saved me from having to sell my left kidney to afford the real thing!
