They tried to make me go to rehab but I said 'no, no, no'

I've had this majorly oversized tee in my closet for ages and finally thought of a use for it. The basic idea was to cut strips into the sides and tie them back together a little smaller and tighter. I saw a similar project on the Hot Topic website (kinda like this but on the sides and not the back). I also found this if you want to make your own version. I guess it was a bit of a strange project but it makes for a really good A/C on hot summer days!
While we're on the subject of DIYs, I am about to start a project that's been on my mind for a long time. I'm not telling what it is just yet but you can be sure it will be seriously awesome.

Well motorbikes SCARE me so I'm not going to encourage you to get one of them. New York would be amazing - I'm going not next week, but the week after for the first time (if you haven't been before, I'll let you know what it's like, if you have tell me somewhere good to go!) - that would be something really special to do with the money.. but shoes are so tempting! Tough decision! I wish it was hot enough over here to wear a t-shirt all cut open but at soon as the 1st September came it went FREEZING. Looking forward to seeing what your DIY will be! :) x

I just went threw a major DIY mode/moment. Turned 3 pairs of pants into shorts (and just before Fall!) lol.. couldn't help myself. ;)

I love the idea behind the tee, very open, very Alexander Wang cool!
