Yes…I’m VERY excited to announce next week will be my very own Granny Chic Week. Where I will refashion old lady clothing into something more trendy as well as sporting some in a granny chic way. I have been dying (pause)…..dying to do this for forever now! SO DANG EXCITED!
I’m telling you guys this now because I was wondering if any of you want in on this challenge?! You don’t have to do it for a week, just once and then send me the pictures. It can be something you refashioned from granny’s closet or send me a granny chic outfit post! I would love to stick it up on my blog.
So….you in?
If you are, you can slap this button onto an…outfit post, refashion post, or whatever as long as it is granny chic related this week! Or you can just stick it up on your blog for support sake. I want to do lots and lots more of these kind of things…so it would be nice to spread the word!


  1. Ohh! I have some vintage dresses that need serious de-granny-ing. This would be perfect!

  2. we are so in friend!


  3. New follower. I have been reading for months but just made my own blog. This is a good idea! but you wont see any from me because I am redoing my own clothes first 😛

  7. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! If the weather is nice next week, I won’t be doing any sewing but I do have a shirt that I redid and it ended up being one of my favorites!

  8. I am definitely in. I am a new follower and I have a granny moo-moo thing that definitely needs some refashioning.

  9. hmm, I might need to be in on this…AN the best part??? My 2 grandson CALL me GRANNY!!!! So I guess I can refashion any of my stuff…LOL

  10. what a fun feature!

  11. I’ll give it a go. I do have a shirt of my grandma’s (VERY 1976) that I’ve been wanting to redo. I’ll see how it turns out. It might still end up more “granny” than “chic” but we’ll see.

  12. This sounds so fun! I’m sure I have something grannyish hiding in this house that’s been waiting to be restyled… I can’t wait to see everyones projects!

  13. I have 3 dresses I’ve thrifted that need de-grannifying! This is just the kick I need to get onto it!! Hooray!

  14. I’m so excited you’re hosting this. Such a great idea. I’ve been meaning to alter some (a couple bags) thifted dresses I found. But have since gotten pregnant and have to wait to get started. Getting ideas would be great!

  15. WOW. I AM SO IN.
    Here’s my blog, http://projectadoration.blogspot.com

    Prepare for emails.
