This has all been wonderful, but now I’m on my way.

Image via Is This Real Life?

Inspired after seeing Tallulah Morton, I had a field day with my scissors and below is the result.

DIY t-shirt and shorts. Urban Outfitters cardigan. Zara vest. Vintage boots

Cutting the small holes was a bit time consuming, but after two hours and a few episodes of bad reality TV, I whipped this bad boy up.

I’m all about fringe again and instead of making the usual cutoff shorts, decided to cut fringe strips into an old pair of jeans.  I’ll have to experiment with this more when I have time and see how they look after I throw them into the washer.

I’ll be MIA over the next few days and heading out of town to San Francisco.  Hope you all have a fabulous New Years Eve/Day.

THANK YOU for making the last 9 months (since I started this blog) an amazing ride.

See you in 2010!

xoxo, Becs

    I’m going to have to do this to a tee as well; it’s so adorable! And I think the fringe on the shorts would look really cool once it’s been washed and frayed a bit… I’m all about the slightly grungy.

    Have an amazing time in SF. Can’t wait for another year in fashion blogging with you 🙂
