One of the boys. [Bloggers Wardrobe Entry!]

I'm so excited to have the opportunity to apply for Bloggers Wardrobe
My entry consists of two parts. First off, I'd like to state why I feel I deserve a spot in this brilliant program. 

 I am a character and Style Phenomenon is meant to inspire a world where no one is afraid to let their character show. Plainly speaking, Bloggers Wardrobe is a fascinating concept that I am dying to be a part of!

Now you can help me out!

------------------------------------

A few days ago my mom brought home a book from the craft store all about re-purposing clothing in new ways. Most of the projects required semi-advanced sewing skills and time, two things I'm lacking, but when I saw a project that I could start and finish almost instantly I knew I had to try it. 
This skirt is SUPER easy and I am in love with the results. 
Step one - Button mens shirt around your waist, using the collar like a waistband.
Step 2 - Pull the sleeves to the front and tie. 
Voila! 
You now have a Vivienne Westwood-esque skirt!
These skirts are pretty easy to come by, especially if you have a dad or brother to borrow from or you can find them in a million styles and colors at your local thrift. 



Urban Outfitters Hat, Victoria's Secret Tank, Dad's shirt as skirt, F21 heels
