The Curator


Refashionista Sheri

I’m Sheri Pavlović, the DIY diva & author behind the book series, channel & blog Confessions of a Refashionista, the fabulous eco-friendly corner of the internet packed with step-by-step upcycling tutorials for everything from groovy clothing & accessories to funky home decor + a healthy dose of affordable sustainable lifestyle inspiration!

I absolutely adore transforming old into new and sharing my adventures in upcycling with you! I’m Canadian but lived a most extraordinary existence in North America, Japan, England, Greece & Germany before finally ending up in Toronto after over 20 years spent living & working abroad in the DIY, Fashion, Publishing, Education & Entertainment industries .

My personal definition of a Refashionista? A kick ass DIY eco-fashion & décor upcycling warrior who firmly believes that fab, affordable, unique style can be achieved by anyone without supporting the phenomenon of cheap, unethically produced products & fashion.

Join Refashion Nation!

Are you a creative refashionista or thrifty stylista?

Do you want to encourage others to join the groovy world of refashioning & thrifting?

Become a contributor to Refashion Nation & help create an inspirational resource of links to upcycled DIY clothing & accessory tutorials + thrifty outfit ideas for those wanting fabulous, affordable, unique style without supporting the growing phenomenon of cheap, mass produced “fast fashion”…

Your duties as a Refashion Nation contributor:

– Commit to uploading at least one post per week (a minimum of 4+ posts per month)

– Provide a groovy photo of yourself, your blog/social media links & a short bio for the contributor page

– Locate & upload links to fabulously photographed step-by-step refashioned clothing, accessory & decor DIYs & amazing thrifted outfit posts

What Refashion Nation is:

– A collection of fabulous photographs & links leading to the best free refashioned clothing tutorials & thrift store outfit styling from around the internet

– Short, to the point, well-organized, attractive posts

What Refashion Nation is NOT:

– A archive of full tutorials

– A place of self-promotion (although an occasional tutorial/outfit post linking back your own blog is acceptable)

– A showcase of dingy, badly lit photographs

Posting guidelines:

– Please ensure that the blogger whose post you are planning to feature does not forbid the republishing of their photograph or a link to the original post. (this information, if available, is usually found on the “about” page, blog sidebar or the end of a post)

– Each uploaded post must contain a clever title containing the maker/thrifty fashionista’s name, a snappy one line description, link to the original post & a single oh-so-awesome photo (it will always be © credited to the blog/photographer of origin)

– Uploaded contributor posts must be saved as drafts – only the curator of Refashion Nation may publish posts

Let the Nation know what you think...
