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!
