How to be Stylish without Breaking the Bank: Outfit #1 - I WANT THAT WHOLE LOOK

How to be Stylish without Breaking the Bank: Outfit #1

Hello wonderful people!
So how does one stay stylish without breaking the bank? They make their own clothes, especially if they are a fashion designer like me. I know some of you are like, "But not every one is a fashion designer and can sew!" There are definitely other ways, thrifting for one, or up-cycling old outfits by doing things such as adding embellishments or removing them.
In my case I wanted to create my own take on this whole "Off the Shoulder" trend that seems to be the highlight of this summer. So I came up with 3 essential aspects that I wanted in the design, and then I created it. I am very pleased with the turn out.

    1. Thank you Ashley, it means a lot to me hearing that I can design and make garments people would actually want to buy. That's every fashion designer's dream.

  6. Wow it is so cool that you not only designed that whole thing but then sewed it yourself. This is such a cute design, I'd love to see it as a dress!

  9. That olive top is really interesting. I love how it's high low. I like all your picks. I've wanted to try my hand at making a few pieces myself this summer. If I have time, I'll definitely do it. I'd love to try a maxi!

    1. You are so sweet Krista. Thank you! If I were you I would do it in stages i.e you could start with just your shirts move on to dresses etc. So that it is not overwhelming doing everything all at once.
