DIY Fashion - The Fab 40s

I'm a little late with this post, but this time I have a really good excuse!  Started working again this week after almost 6 months of unemployment. Thank you sweet baby Jesus. So yeah, those super early wake up calls, morning/evening commutes and getting use to a new routine has me a bit out of sort this week. I am so grateful to be working again, but I just can't stay up late working on the blog and then get up super early like I use to! Those days are gone, ah Fab 40's you making me look like an old lady....LOL Any how this month theme chosen by Diane is DIY!  I have wanted to do DIY on the blog for years. So many ideas swirling in my brain, I even have a box of stuff I bought for my DIY fashion post.  Nope, never happened so kinda glad the Fab 40's crew had this challenge for this month. I am still planning on doing a denim patch DIY, so lets cross our fingers it gets done this summer.

Since I am the queen of procrastination, this was my on the fly, done in an hour DIY!  I had a cool denim DIY idea in mind, but was missing a few pieces.  Since I am not one to quit or give up easily, I dug into the closet and found this big boxy camo tee the BF bought me.  I mentioned once I wanted a cool camo tee, yeah this was not it.  No worries DIY to the rescue.  The whole choker trend has been translated into t-shirts and I wanted to buy one any way, so why not just make my own. Viola!  Cool, camo, choker t-shirt coming right up! 

Originally I was only going to do the choker part, but it was still missing something. I wanted the tee to look a little more feminine and sexy. A few more snips to the sleeves to make it a cold shoulder top.  Yet something still seemed not quite right, well with scissors in hand, a few more snips turned into a bows at the sleeves. Now it was just right! I may do another choker tee and add some distressing.  I will definitely take more pics and even do a tutorial on my next DIY....promise!

I am in love with Mary's jeans, they are too cool. I wonder if she will make me a pair....LOL 

Tracey is our guest blogger this month, from The Naughty Forty Diaries. She went with a simple, yet very cute patch tee. Also she added some cold shoulder details, like me!  Great minds, thats all I'm gonna say.

  25. Should I choose ancheer electric bike or hotebike electric bike? What is the difference between ancheer electric bike and hotebike?Ancheer does offer some service and repairs but reviews of these have been mixed so you are rolling the dice a bit here. For what it is worth, in my experience Ancheer bikes have worked well out of the box and have aged as expected.Next, let’s talk about the hotebike electric bike, which is a 36v350w electric bicycle. It has a 10AH waterproof battery hidden in the frame, and the battery is removable, you can remove it for charging at any time. Make it look perfect, it looks like an ordinary mountain bike at first glance!
