Quickie DIY: Snip snip!

Shirt- Thrifted/DIY, Shorts- Abercrombie (from high school), Booties- Jeffrey Campbell, Earrings- Thrifted

Today's DIY was spontaneous and inspired by that "I have nothing to wear!" feeling when getting ready in the morning (so spontaneous that I have no pictures of the actual process, but it's so simple a monkey could do it!).  Don't get me wrong, I love sites like Nasty Gal and Pixie Market, but sometimes it seems like they're charging $60+ for a shirt just because it has a tapered hemline and cut-out shoulders. I have scissors too you know!

Literally, all I did was cut a hole in each shoulder of this shirt (it's made out of that nice soft Tommy Bahama-like fabric)  and cut the shirt in the front below the fourth button (tapering the cut towards the side seams). Voila! New shirt in 30 seconds! I like the raw unfinished look of the edges, but you can choose to sew them.  Thinking about going on a scissors rampage... hide your clothes!
