Laid Back

diy backless sweater, big star usa jeans, zara shoes and bag

Took what was one of my bf's favorite sweaters and turned it into what is now my favorite sweater (best gf ever, I know) - in actuality, it's the top half of a dress I made some weeks ago for a wedding (photos soon!) Truthfully though, there's nothing more alluring than a deep-cut-low-back anything.  Dressed it down with a pair of dark skinnies from Big Star USA for a more laid back casual feel for a Sunday stroll. Although jeans are practically non-existent in my life, these have had a star role as of late.  Benefits include a slimming look and an accentuation of certain ass-ets. A well rounded pair of denim if I do say so myself.

Beautifullll, hey did you cut your hair? Looks nice short :) and I always loved deep cut low back tops, your so good at DIYs! You should consider your own boutique with your own label, I'd buy all the time!

Psh living vicariously through ME? Girl you're wearing a DIY backless sweater - how much more amazing can that get? Seriously though, those Big Star Jeans are one of my favorite pairs, the color, the stretch, can't get enough!

Sincerely,
your twin from New York obviously
