Confession time. So... maybe I read Teen Vogue. And maybe I still can't afford half of the clothing that the models wear (which means I am not sure how teens are supposed to afford it either). But, I am a fan of the designer DIY projects that they have each issue, since "practically free" is the only thing that fits into my budget these days. Vena Cava's project a few issues back is a perfect end-of-summer style that anyone can create, with a comfy tee shirt and a simple skirt sewn on the bottom.
I picked up some floral fabric at the thrift store the other day and have a v-neck I'm going to attach it to over the weekend!
