You Can Do It

Today, Mel, Rhizzle and I went to Bleach Black‘s DIY sesh at the cool Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood.  Here are pics of us from my work holiday party; totally unrelated, but the pics we took together at the event didn’t come out so hott.

gh-holiday-party1 As a daily follower of Bleach Black, when I learned about their DIY sesh, I knew I had to be there.  The ladies behind have amazing style and rad fashion ‘tudes.  In the past, I’ve taken an amateur snip here and there, cutting up necklines of t-shirts and ripping holes in jeans, but nothing that I’ve been especially proud of.  My last DIY attempt was when I wanted to make over my fugly team t-shirt during my first and last Stay Puft Dodgeball season.  When you get blindsided and smacked in the face with a ball hurled by a guy, you’d think twice about playing as well.  Anyway, when I was over the fugliness of this shirt, I searched on YouTube and followed a DIY video from a Hot Topic designer.  The back ribbon weaving is the highlight of the shirt, though I could have done it better with the right scissors.   Honestly, I would have also shredded the sides of the shirt, but I stuck to the more conservative side because, hey, I was playing a pseudo sport.
