I love taking band tees and cutting them up for a more feminine shape. So when I saw the trend to cut tees with a v in the front leaving the collar to imitate a choker I was all about it! I have a tee shirt I plan to DIY this look on; I saw this one at Nordstrom and loved it and also thought it could make for a good template for my DIY. Growing up, my sister was far more the Metallica fan than I though I still loved their music; she saw them in concert and treasures her band tee from that show when they played with Guns n Roses and Faith No More!
Some of you may have seen my Facebook Live with Dia&Co the other Saturday. It was my first time doing a live video and it was a lot of fun! Dia& Co is a really unique program for plus size fashion – for a low monthly fee you get a real life stylist who gets to know you, your personal style, lifestyle, and budget and curates boxes of clothing and accessories for you. If you like what you receive, use your monthly cost as credit toward the item/s. Return what you don't like and the stylist notes your tastes to better refine future boxes. I received my first box from Dia and on their Facebook page did a live unboxing of the contents. These pants were one of the items and I was so psyched! I've been on the hunt for faux leather pants to replace my favorite ones that started falling apart. These are uber comfy, really stretchy but don't bag out with wear. I got some other great items in my Dia box that you'll likely see on the blog or Instagram in the near future.
I'll take a bit of metal for my trip to the grocery store – this is essentially a look of stretchy pants, a tee shirt, and comfort brand shoes but with a rocker edge. Who says comfortable has to be boring?
