Every few months I try to go through my closest and pick out the things that either don’t fit or I just don’t think fit my personal style anymore, and from there I would usually just donate them or throw them away if they were old. But ever since I have put myself on a budget a few months ago, I have been trying to be more resourceful. Which means I first think of any possible alterations I could make to the item to make it more me. And that is exactly what I did with this shirt.
I got this shirt back in high school when I was rockin’ Monarchy, Christian Audiger, Ed Hardy and the likes; but if you have seen my blog, you’ll know that my style has changed drastically since then. So I realized by taking off some of the heavy embroidery (aka chopping off the sleeves) I could make this shirt work. Then I decided since color-blocking is in and its still a bit chilly out, I could throw on a basic black long sleeve tee shirt under it to make it more current. Pair it with some leather boots and some joggers and you got yourself a completely new look without even spending a dime. Oh the wonders of scissors.
