Cutting

 Ashley B jacket, Urban Behaviour sweater, F21 top, Smart Set cami, Parasuco jeans (thrifted), 
Liliana wedges (last seen here), Le Chateau pashmina, Bijoux Terner necklace & Aldo bangle

While pulling outfits a couple weekends ago, I was reminded by Tiffany that I'd see a post by Maegan where she cut her sweater in half to make a cardigan.  I had this bat-wing-boat-neck sweater that I hadn't worn in a couple years (yes, really) and get this:  I have two (of the exact same sweater - I guess I loved it that much... ) so I figured no harm, even if it didn't turn out as I would still have one left.  Fortunately it did turn out and I loved the end result!  An instant cardigan, with some good length.  Since then, I've been rummaging through my closet to see what else I can cut in half.

Haha, I tried to cut a slip once to make it the length I wanted, and it ended up so horribly crooked(literally one side didn't even cover my bum, where the other side hit mid thigh)I threw a major baby tantrum, threw the scissors (not at anyone!) and went and pouted in my room. Needless to say, I won't try cutting clothes again! BUT, yours turned out great!!

Ok, so I have to say the pictures you take in the parking garage are always my favourite. I'm not sure why, maybe because it's extra cool, and movie-star-esque?

And I'm glad you think I suit the jetta!! I <3 that car!
