  2. i am nearly speechless....this is insanely cool! i'm glad you included the directions, as i could never have figured it out without wasting a lot of tees in the process. ok, i'm inspired now...just need to decide which tee to use...
    thanks for the comment on Style Odyssey, by the way- much appreciated!

  6. The fringe hanging out is epic. This who outfit (especially the Docs) makes you pretty much my hero.

  15. ah, i love this! the rib cage shirt is great and all but i also love how you paired fringe with it all. it totally adds an unexpected edge to it. not to sound all gory and weird, but it's almost like guts spilling out (which is a good thing in fashion-form, not so much in real life..)!
