How to Wear DIY: Vintage silk made-over top
Let's start here.
I haven't totally mastered wearing loose tops, but I picked up this silk top at Goodwill thinking I could try making it over into something modern and wearable! Since silk is so much nicer than whatever the ones at Forever 21 are made of--cheap poly blends etc.
And, brights are in this year! So here's the "before"--I'm sure you recognize this shapeless thing from the days of high-waisted jeans and big, round earrings. Your Goodwill or thrift store probably has plenty, too!
I figured out a few little alterations I could take (hint: armhole), and turned this baby around! Check out the "after":
Nice early fall look, eh, with wide leg jeans and some new fave yellow platforms from Target ($3.99 brand new at Goodwill, love them).
Shoes: Target via Goodwill. Jeans: Express via Goodwill. Necklace: Forever 21.
