White Trash Couture?

I come from a long line of white trash.  I don’t think that’s a bad thing.  It makes me interesting!  What says white trash more than cut off denim, an altered tee, and cheap beer? 

This month’s blog collective topic is denim.  A few years ago I was on the hunt for a short denim skirt in my size.  I looked everywhere….hunted high and low.  I couldn’t find anything.  I was totally discouraged and about to give up when I stumbled upon a long denim skirt at Catherines.  The fit was great, but the length was not.  I decided to buy it and hack off the bottom.  Voila, my short denim skirt.

Paired with my denim skirt is an “I’m Fat Let’s Party” tee that I recently purchased from Serbi T-Shirts.   I bought the 5X.  I didn't like the fit of the shirt as is and have always wanted to alter a tee.  My Pinterest search began for altered tees.  There are so many cute ways to alter one.  I chose a relatively easy alteration, because I didn't want to mess up this awesome shirt.  I cut the neckline, the hemline, and the sleeves.  On the back, I cut 4 horizontal slashes.  When I tried it on, I realized you really couldn't see the last slash, so I attached the bottom two together.  I wanted to cute up the shirt, thus the polka dot bows I made out of a small piece of material.  It was less than $1 of material from Hobby Lobby. 

Completing the outfit are a few of my wardrobe staples:  black leggings (Fashion Bug), a black tank (Old Navy), and Pabst Blue Ribbon (my local convenience store).  ;-)
