Yesterday I posted (although late) my spring visual lookbook (check on it). Today's look is the last look from the lookbook. I created this look to attend a fashion show. While I didn't attend the show, I did get a chance to wear this outfit to another event.
This entire look came about because I had this crazy idea to bedazzle a pair of suspenders. So I took to several thrift stores with the intent on finding really cool pendents and pins. The downside to this little project was that I had to buy the suspenders from Macy's.
Mixing a causal tee with a dressy bottom is a fun way to either dress up or dress down your ensemble. I was going for a casual chic street style look. By pairing this screen-t with these wide-legged tuxedo pants, I can easily take this look to a day meeting followed by a mid-week girls night out.
In case you were wondering, let me tell you what you'll need in order to create your own diy suspenders.
- One pair of suspenders
- Glue gun + glue sticks
- Pins/pendents of your choice (you can find really unique pieces from the thrift store)
- Arrange each piece on the straps in the place you desire and glue it down (or pin it)
- Easy - Peasy
What are your thoughts on mixing casual and dressy? And, if you don't mind, tell me what you thought about my suspenders. Drop a line in the comments.
