shoes; jeffrey campbell. tights; camden market [UK]. socks; free people. dress; chiara's creation. bra; urban outfitters.
ladies and gentlemen, i would like to introduce you to chiara's first industrially constructed dress.
necessities: an old dress, an old tee, 30 safety pins, and scissors.
time needed: 30minz.
state of mind (optional, but strongly suggested): dazed & confused.
steps: 1) cut shirt just underneath boobies.
2) cut dress so that when it hangs below shirt, it cuts off mid-thigh
3) safety pin shirt to dress in pleated manner
4) (optional) cut designs out of shoulders or sides
AND PRESTO, YOU GOT A HOTTIE TOTTIE DRESS FOR A NAUGHTY SHAWTY.
i reused one of my older fashion techniques of sock layering. the tights i am wearing underneath the thigh high black socks are actually opaque black until they reach the tip of the cross... so i thought the crochet socks would be a dope over layer for the opaque portion of the tights, giving the outfit a nice, rough textural feel.
