Feelin' a little Chanel-esque....

A few weekends ago I was on Melrose and saw a faux Chanel tank with the signature double Cs dripping in a bunch of different patterns. I died a little inside and HAD to have it... 

until i saw the price.

Since i REFUSED to pay nearly $50 for a tank on my college budget (even though it was undeniably adorable) I decided to make it myself!

Joann's fabrics has great fabric remnants for about a $1, and I bought a slinky, over sized, blue  American Apparel Tee at  Crossroads vintage/thrift store in Berkeley for $8. ($10 is SO much better than $50!)

The shirt with a Guess snakeskin print mini skirt and a 1980s black and gold metal clutch looked great together. ( i love mixing girly floral prints with animal/snakeskin. ) 


Add a few quirky accessories and your outfit is complete :). 


  1. Thank you anonymous follower (haha)


  2. How did you create the "Chanel" Logo, what template did you use?
