30 Days of Outfits Challenge: Day 26

In DIY, Outfits on November 29, 2010 by Naoko Takano

 Ring-Detail Hat: DIY.  Convertible Jersey Dress: Norma Kamali. Shirt Collar and Cuffs: DIY.  Puffball Ring: from Japan.  Leather Flower Ring: Delia’s.  Cobalt Tights: Hue.  Lace-up Oxford Suedette Booties: Forever 21.

Day 26 in my 30 Days of Outfits Challenge: November 26.

Stuffed from Thanksgiving…and there’s only 5 more days in this challenge of mine!  I tried out sort of a menswear-inspired outfit for today.

The hat is just a fedora I found at Target…and added a grosgrain ribbon and large silver ring around the crown to…and then added some large silver jumprings along the brim to look like “piercings.”  It’s kind of edgy and fun at the same time.

As all of you probably know, I’ve done a ton of makeovers for men’s button-down shirts.  In many of my tutorials I’ve cut off the collar and cuffs of the shirts, which had found a home in my scrap bag.  But since Miu Miu’s S/S ’10 Collection…and Alexa Chung’s collared-dress snapshots popping up aorund the blogosphere…

and tons of editorials in Vivi magazine featuring removable collars…I decided to pull a couple pieces out of my scrap bag and re-purpose them.  I also added cuffs, which are, amazingly, from the very first men’s shirt makeover (Men’s Shirt to Cute Summer Shirt Dress) that I shared on my blog almost a year and 4 months ago.

The shoes are from Forever 21 and a half-size too small for me (size 7 U.S.)…so I’m going to be putting them up for sale on ShopChicSteals soon if anyone’s interested.
