16. A customized item

Some people might recognize this jacket because I did a DIY post on it:

Customizing can be anything from something small to something big, as long as it fits you how you want it to~

 

Why have the jacket when you can have the grungy vest?

I was walking past the store Aeropostale and saw a HUGE poster of Chloe Moretz in front! I stopped and stared. Next thing I know, I was at home googling this up, and giving this girl a thumbs up! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXsZH0EFKBk&feature=my_liked_videos&list=LLaEaViJt_-j09nLYEBYFiUQ )

The 15-year-old actress has just been named Aéropostale’s celebrity brand ambassador! What does this mean? That Moretz will star in a campaign for the brand, beginning with the 2012 back-to-school season.

Personally, Chloe is just this super adorable and young girl that knows how to have fun with fashion and she just makes anything work because of her outgoing personality. I really found this out through seeing her on the cover of Seventeen magazine and looking at her behind-the-scenes footage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yJ42fYJqlv4

Chloe is what I would define as feminine, fun and chic. She knows how to stay comfy, but still have fun with what she wears.  Below are her promo photo’s with the captions labelled underneath. Check out the site: http://www.aeropostale.com/shop/index.jsp?categoryId=3534619

Breaking hearts-cool as can be in jeans & our moto jacket.

Leaps & Bounds- layers of texture topped with a bold hat.

Laid Back- casual as ever in our jeggings & tee layered with our fleece vest.

All Class- never missing a beat in animal denim print.

Colour Me This- lace leggings rock a classic mohair sweater.

The New Bohemian- our long patterned skirt & cardigan; mix it up boho chic.

What do you think of her? The bohemian and breaking hearts looks are my two personal favourites. I think for such a young girl, she can make it work representing this store~

Ever find those articles of clothes that you look at and think, “What the heck is this? DID I buy this? Or has it always been in the back of my closet?” Well that’s me with this black jacket:

The funny part is that it’s a really great fit, sort of like a blazer feel, it has buttons and a zipper, but it LOOKS old and grungy. I like that feature about it, but I could never find an outfit for it.

Yesterday I came across this photo on Tumblr, and it got me thinking because I’d been looking for a nice, interesting vest for a long time now.

So I woke up this morning, 8am, god knows why, and decided to do something about this jacket! So I went from THIS:

To THIS:

I’m extremely happy with the results. I didn’t realize that simply cutting off the arms of the jacket would make such a huge difference! This makes me want to go thrift hunting now! I’m normally terrible at stuff like this, but it’s interesting to see what a pair of scissors can do! I urge you to try it to something you own, it’s a lot of fun =)

If you have any experiences, or tips, feel free to share!~
