Do you ever see something and think, "wow I bet I could make that for way less?" Yeah me too. Well, I probably couldn't make it but I have wonderful friends that can! 

My first look was inspired by a sweatshirt I saw on Free People. It's no longer available, but a picture of the original is below. I was scrolling through and thinking "I really think this is something that could be made." My friend Halee is insanely talented when it comes to this kind of thing so she actually made me one for Christmas and it was a fraction of the cost.

What you'll need:

  • Plain black sweatshirt (check your local Target)
  • Gold stars of different sizes with prongs to attach
  • Gold safety pins

Make sure to wash the sweatshirt before because you'll never be able to wash it again. For your own star sweatshirt, you can reach out the Halee on Instagram (@haleesue). 

My second look is inspired by a pair of Gucci shoes I've been dreaming about.  I probably won't ever be able to afford them (or justify them) so I contacted my friend Flo who does amazing things with paint and shoes. She literally created the exact design with the same colors. She also does cute Disney designs and sports designs so make sure to check out her Etsy store

I'm keeping this post short and sweet tonight but basically what I am saying is if you think you can make it, you probably can or know someone that can. Hope you're having a great week!

xo,

Steph
