Cardigan + Cutoffs

IMG_3878 A piece that I have been lusting over for months now is the American Apparel Modal Shawl Cardigan. It's a big ticket item that I think I will invest in before leaving for Copenhagen, but until then I have been on the hunt for something similar at thrift stores. That's why I was stoked when my bestie gave this one to me yesterday (that she thrifted) because she didn't like how it looked on her. We trade clothes like this quite often, and I gladly accepted! I think it will look great with dresses, but yesterday I paired it with a simple tank and shorts combo to stay cool.

On my Instagram earlier today I posted this photo of a DIY tank I made in case anyone needed some outfit ideas for the 4th tomorrow!

It is pretty simple to make--just cut fringe and add beads, but if you need a more in-depth tutorial I have posted it below! This tutorial was the first DIY video I ever made back when my best friend and I tried starting up a YouTube channel. It's pretty embarrassing I'll admit, but still useful! Enjoy and have a good holiday!

DIY Asos Inspired Aztec Tank

If you read my outfit post Desert Vibes, then you saw my latest DIY creation, an aztec embellished top! I was inspired by the tank top below, which I originally spotted on Asos. The brand is called "Freak of Nature" and I'm obsessed with their southwestern yet edgy pieces that have graphic prints, cutouts, and interesting textiles. I loved the cool southwestern feel of this top, and wanted to recreate it. I chose to just do the aztec trim for a simpler look to suit my own style, but you could add the turquoise beads and fringe as well! IMG_3155 my DIY

P.S. Just wanted to say that I missed you all! I was super busy finishing up my final project for architecture studio (aka not sleeping) but am finally done and can now post daily, yay! Here are some shots of our work (it was a partner project). I'll also be doing a step-by-step post on the making of this model once we take some profesh photos of it next week.
