Turning a tank into a skirt = Fun

When i made the post on celebrities wearing bandage skirts, I felt very surprised and particularly inspired when I read how some of you who hadn't found the perfect one managed to make your own out of a cotton top, I mean how creative is that? Yeah, now you know what I mean when I say that fashion ideas come from everywhere, not only runway, not only flashy magazines. Here's the result of the "turning a tank into a skirt" project, pictures all taken by me (in the usual camera in hand mode) as my sister was too busy to help (at least that's what I heard her say) and I am quite a lazy-arse who didn't want to set the tripod. Oh, and just to make it clear, those are high heels I'm wearing on the pictures.


Oh, last but not least, I would like to link Jimena, we attend the same university and met once (it was pretty casual), she's very nice and she opened her own blog a couple weeks ago :)

Oh yes, very cute! I am going to borrow that idea...if only I can find some cheap camis that aren't ribbed. BTW I am sure the "bulky plaid scarves" look cool on you, but here, it is a frequent as...Britney Spears in the news, or something.

SICK. dijo...

when i couldn't find a bandage skirt, i folded & rolled a dress, and i also wore the underlay which i cut out from my sixth grade graduation.
now i have a tight skirt, but i still like to do the other things.

You totally wouldn't know that was a tank. Good work! I love the sandals too.

JuliAM dijo...

this has inspired me to see if there are any tank tops in my wardrobe that can make the leap to miniskirt.

Jen (MahaloFashion) dijo...

I still don't have a bandage skirt
*shame*
I love the one you are wearing though it looks amazing on you. The shoes are killer, I really need to get a nice brown pair!

I've wanted a red bandage skirt for a super long time. This idea is awesome since tank tops from F21 are so cheap.
