    At Chictopia this was a big trend just a little while ago, so I’m familiar with the look from there… it’s such a breezy, casual summer thing, great.

    it’s great to see bushwick changing.. i just hope it doesn’t become expensive, a la williamsburg, before i get there!

    great style!

    Hey Yvan, I saw you walking on St. Marks today… find anything good? Well, I’ve got my own site here in NYC:

    Tell me what you think!

    Yeah, she’s not THAT creative, everyone has tried that look, especially on Chictopia. No doubt that’s where she got it from.

  12. Dapper Kid says:

    Regardless of whether it has been done by lots on Chictopia, I still love it!

    one of the most simplistically inventive facehunter finds ever..i love it! congratulations whomever you are!

  19. What a creative idea of converting a shirt into a dress!!
    It’s so versatile and beautiful!

  20. pinktuutuu says:

    AWESOME! but does it stay up?

  21. ting-wai says:

    fabulous dress! it works so well on her.

  22. This is wonderful. It reminds me of a photo on The Sartorialist of a girl who made a skirt from a mans button-down only with tucking and tying.

    not meaning to sound like snoot but, its a smart idea, cute and all but the execution…not so much. It looks like a shirt awkwardly tied up around her bust, not like a shirt remade into a cute summer dress.


    just saying

    That’s super cute…I wonder if it’s actually sewn together or if it’s just wrapped around?

    On a related note, I make cute tops out of men’s shirts! They’re different though.

    Here’s an example:

    Is no one reminded of a 6am walk of shame by this shirt? Not sure if that is part of the sexy-appeal…
