the pocket tank

top: joe fresh (customized DIY pocket by my sister)  // pants: joe fresh ($7 a couple months ago) // shoes: aldo // sunglasses: ray-ban // bracelet: handmade // watch: michael kors // necklace: forever 21 

A few weeks ago when my younger sister and brother came to visit I requested my other lovely sister to make me two tops and send it with them.
I absolutely love this tank she made me and it's so easy! ..just pick whatever tank or t-shirt you want and go to a fabric store or pick up an old flannel button down, cut out a square of the fabric and sew it on! Voila you have a new top! 
If you are like me and cannot sew for the life of you.. ask someone to do it for you or go to a tailor!
 I've actually seen tops like this sell at Urban Outfitters for over $30 and this one cost under $10. 
Have I convinced you yet? haha

Have a wonderful almost Friday everyone!
