Dupe this look with some lacy applique applied to the collar of a button-down shirt, some fabric paint (or stencil paint!) for the daisies on the shorts, and some decorative buttons or colored gem nailheads for the flower centers.

The fashionable outfits seen around the globe during the various Fashion Weeks are always so inspirational.  I just love seeing the boldness, the color, the next BIG THING!  How about getting your craft on after seeing some of these ideas?  I’m all for it!

Easiest DIY ever: just cut off the shoulders of a favorite top to give it a sexy makeover.  Bonus points for folding down the raw edge and securing it for the ultimate wearability!

Make a funky blouse all your own by customizing with a contrasting placket and collar, cut from a different shirt (and subsequently, sew the placket/collar from this shirt onto that one = perfect gift for your bestie!).  Sometimes the Frankenstein look can be so awesome.

This looks so simple to DIY!  Just use glitter fabric paint and a skull stencil to spice up a plain sweater.
