OOTD 83: "7 Minutes in Heaven"

DSC_0693 Today's outfit is full of my favorite pieces: skulls, a DIY tee, denim, leggings, and Vans. Yep, perfect combination. This outfit risks looking very casual, almost like a painting day or something, but adding interest with some textured leggings and a cool acid wash to your shirt can be all the difference you need to spice up the look.

Today's outfit title comes from the Fall Out Boy song "7 Minutes in Heaven." Listen along here while you view! Who else is excited that they're making a comeback? And what did you think of their new song?

I'm on the hunt for more fun leggings like the ones i'm wearing to replace my old black ones that are falling apart. I'm loving these. Have you seen any lately that you love?

DIY_Craft Foam Stamped Top

DSC_0106 It's no secret that stamped tees have been circulating the blogosphere, and I wanted to make my own. This top is great because you have the freedom to make any design you want by making the stamps yourself out of craft foam! It's also very inexpensive because foam costs less than 70 cents and my fabric paint was $1.59. Enjoy!

The supplies you will need are: a shirt (mine was $5 at Wal-Mart), some fabric paint, craft foam, scissors, a paper plate, adhesive/glue, a pen, and a paintbrush (optional)

Begin by cutting your desired shape out of the craft foam. Mine was a triangle in two different sizes. After cutting one shape, trace it onto the craft foam twice and create two more identical shapes.

Stack and adhere the three identical shapes together with some glue or sticky squares like I did because I couldn't find any glue...

Attach the stack to a square piece of craft foam to create the stamp. Spread the fabric paint onto the paper plate and dip your stamp into the paint. Make sure you have even coverage.

Begin stamping your desired pattern onto the shirt. I alternated between the two sizes, and had the triangles pointing both up and down. I also created sets of two or three triangles for variation.

You can also go in with a paintbrush if your stamp didn't create a completely filled in triangle shape, and just touch up the design a little.

And here's the finished printed shirt! I'm really pleased with this top and it was very inexpensive. This is a good way to spice up a basic top while still keeping it as a neutral.

Check back a later tomorrow when I feature this top in my outfit of the day post!

53 intro Yesterday I went out shopping with my mom at the mall to find some presents for our family. Since I was limited to how much I could pack in my suitcase for the trip home (and trust me, my bag was exactly 50 pounds) I've been searching in my closet to find some pieces that haven't gotten much use in the past. I picked up these Doc Marten dupes for around 5 dollars at Wal-Mart in high school. They're a little big but I stuffed some tissue in the toes because I wanted to wear them so bad! I finished off the casual look with some DIYs--my painted top and the plexiglass rings I'm wearing!
