DIM! (Did It Myself!)

Hey everyone!
It's been really hot lately and I've been aching for some new shorts.
So, I looked in my closet for some denim that I could mangle - and found some hideous beaded capri pants that my mom's friend gave me last year. Inspired, I turned them into shorts! Not the most original idea, I admit, but the beads give them a bit of flair. :) I've also cut another pair of pants into bermudas and they frayed beautifully in the wash, but I want to distress them some more before I wear them out.




T-shirt dress: Le Chateau
Shorts: made by me! (original pants from who knows where)
Sunglasses: Le Chateau


Also, I have to say, I usually think Amy Winehouse's clothing choices are absolutely hideous, but in a recent show she turned up in this:

... and I love it!
Honestly, I would snatch this dress up in a second.
The pairing of the two animal prints is genius, and grey and yellow mix so well!
Great job Winehouse stylists!

Love the graphic tee! I like Amy's dress, but her bobble head-ness is very distracting...

I tend to like Winehouse's clothing, it's the hair and makeup I have trouble getting past!

winehouse generally tends to do pretty well when she actually gets dressed, it's the candids that are trashy. and the hair. always.

and good job on the shorts
haha and although amy winehous does have a nice dress on, i think her stylist still need to work on her hair and makeup, haha
