DIY Tshirts!

Heres the deal…  we all have crummy tshirts and tank tops lying around our closet. Pushed behind the hoards of colorful, frilly blouses I’m sure you have hiding a few basic black and white tees.  Instead of continuing to ignore their presence, how about pulling them out and trying a makeover?  With extra scraps of fabric, a few beads and a needle and thread, you can turn your old American Apparel shirts or scruffy college tee’s into something new and trendy.  There are hundreds of ways to recreate a tshirt: add ruffles, pleats, flowers, or flounces.  Anything creative around the neckline, shoulder or hemline will bring your shirt back to life and give it another standing chance against those expensive garments hanging in your closet.

And for those of you who have maintained the selections within your wardrobe by weeding out all the junk… you can always make a quick stop at the mall and find insanely cheap shirts in pretty much any style.  I found this black button down tank at Old Navy for $1.99 on the clearance rack.  Are you kidding me?  Thats pennies in my pocket and essentially free.  With some scrap leopard chiffon and some old funky beads I had from a previous jewelry project, I was able to style the center front of this top with a few embellished ruffles… super simple and really easy to create!

Looks good, right?!

Allow Me to Introduce Myself!

Hello hellooo fellow fashionistas! Welcome to my very first blog!

My name is Randi and I have been a victim to the ever changing and evolving fashion industry for as long as I can remember. Shopping, styling, designing, illustrating, modeling… I’ve tried and done it all! I have continued to follow and study the fashion world throughout the years and continue to be inspired in my own designs and style.

Recently, I graduated from Syracuse University, earning a BFA in fashion design and a minor in textiles. In addition, I have studied abroad, participated in a few high fashion internships and signed to a Boston modeling agency. I eat, sleep, and breathe fashion and would love to share my experiences, opinions, knowledge, and research with you! Please continue to check into my blog for daily updates and lots of pictures!

Also, please check out my website where you can flip through my portfolio of designs!

I hope you enjoy my blog!
