green beer day.



asymmetrical cardi: david bitton buffalo, jeans: papaya, platform heels: jessica simpson, tank: diy

hope everyone had a great st. patty's day.. and that y'all were able to get up for work today :) this is what i wore to work and afterwards yesterday.. though for afterwards i changed to slightly lower pumps.. i didn't want to hobble through st patty day festivities in nearly 5 inchers.

anyways.. the tank was a really random DIY.. remember how i said last weekend was dreary? well since we were stuck at home.. i decided to attempt the shredded tee DIY.. i had wanted a simple slightly more conservative take on it.. so i worked on the side with thin strips.. after just over an hour i had only like an inch done on all the strips.. wut the heck. i also thought i was going to get carpal tunnel. (that warning label should be attached to all the shredded tee diys) two days later and i guess i was done.. done enough to wear it anyways. not sure i would do again.. it's a lot of work. especially when i'd rather just sew something :)

  19. Awesome. This is a totally cool outfit. Woww I like the shredded pattern at the side though can't really see it that clearly from the photos... totally salute you for doing it! X) Where'd you get your tank from though? I've been thinking of doing some DIYs with Ts but not sure where to get inexpensive ones...(agh then again I live in a diff country so oh well...) but do you usually get yours at like Target or someplace like that? Thanks!
