What I am Wearing Wednesday- DIY

Today's What I am Wearing Wednesday features a DIY- I saw this D&G tank top on a Neiman Marcus mid-day dash quick sale.  Originally $100+ and on sale for $80 or so, I thought, "I can make that!"  And so I did.

What I used: 
Target white tank top- $8 + AC Moore brown velvet ribbon $7 + AC Moore glue- .99 + small sewing kit=$15.99 total

Tada!  My version was under $16 and the original was $100+!  Here's what I am wearing:
  • DIY tank top
  • JCrew seafoam green/turquoise cardigan- got at the outlet.
  • Citizen of Humanity jeans
  • Brown Calvin Klein platform sandals- got a few years ago at DSW
  • Forever 21 flower ring
  • gold diamond earrings





What are you wearing today?

  26. Blogging is like DIY land and I've yet to go on board with it because I'm lammmmee haha. Nice job Jamie, that shirt looks awesome and I love how much money you saved and that you actually did it. Props to you from across the country! :) I was wearing a black dress all day but now I'm comfortably in flannel pants and a big, old gray lounge top... and it's heaven :)
