Here's a quick and dirty DIY if you have an awkwardly-fitting tank top lying around. The only ingredients required are a tank top and one pair of scissors. I paired mine with the bandeau top because it was so damn hot and gross today, but I think it would look equally cool layered over a dress or a top (a la Rodarte).

DIY tank
Rag Doll bandeau top
vintage jewelry
True Religion jeans
Theory sandals

  1. It's actually quite cool. Did you cut of parts of the fabric? It hangs wonderfully, I love it.

  17. omg thank you soooo much for this DIY. lately i've been rolling my eyes at the slashed tee trend. but the reason why i am loving this one is because it seriously reminds me of the spine and reminded me of how ever since i was 15 i always wanted to create a tee had a print or something that mimicked my scoliosis. slashing would be the best option as i don't have a silk screen, ink, or any other fancy things needed to print tees. eeek.... im adding this to my long diy list. :)

  19. Great DIY! It kind of looks like ribs to me and I like it a lott. I would totally wear this over a mesh or lace bodysuit... ooh maybe I'll try it on a dress...

    I forgot about TRs... I have several pairs but have been far too addicted to J Brand to wear anything else... but I kind of miss the lowwww cuts haha. Time to break them back out!
