So I don't how many of your are out there that are loving the new fashions but can't do anything with the mid-drifts and bustiers because of personal preference, religious reasons etc.
I decided that I would enjoy some of these funky fashions but adapt to my liking.
I started by making a mid-drift from one of my favorite band tees, this Guns and Roses one was getting too small anyways. I simply cut up from the hem to just under my bust line. I did this all the way around the shirt. Real simple.
You can reference my picture above if you would like to have the same look.
I layered my re-vamped band tee over a white tank and used my knit bolero over top. For bottoms I wore my MissMe jeans Jake got me for Christmas.

My hair was simple I added a couple curls to my already wavy bed head and teased my crown for volume.
I also found and awesome blog for make-up that gave some great tips for applying faux eyelashes. You can find the video here.
Her basic tips where apply enough glue, especially make sure you have enough on the ends of the strip.
Allow some time for the glue to dry a little before you apply it to you eye (about 1 min.)
Center your lash by applying the center of the lash to the center of your lid and then press down the corners.
I was having a hard time deciding which of my pages to post this on. I decided TWO; thats right if you saw this on my "My Nest" page too you are not going crazy.
Alright so this is a little unorthodox for this page because its baby fashion instead of women's fashion but it is just too darn cute. I recently bought this outfit for my best friend, Bri, who is pregnant with her first.
She loves Def Leppard, actually they are her favorite band. I couldn't help myself when I found this onsie so I splurged at go it for $25 from Amazon (including shipping).
I lucked out and found these adorable tan pants at Old Navy for $5.00 and these Van-look-a-likes at Walmart for $5 as well.
Add it all together and you get one stud-ly 80s Rocker baby.
Bringing out an older picture today for some causal outfit inspiration!
This picture is from a photo session with my sister TyRee that we did for fun. I wore my hot pink plaid collared button down with my MissMe jeans.
I'm a little spoiled by my sweet husband; he bought me the fancy jeans! Such a sweetheart.
Getting back on track...
For my hair, I took advantage of my wild bed head hair waves. I added a couple extra curls as needed with my straightener and then bobby pinned my bangs into a large poof.
I love getting the excuse to dress up!
Tonight I had an celebratory dinner for getting an award at work. Since there where only three of us that won this time we decided to splurge and treat ourselves to Tepanyaki Japanese Steakhouse.
YUM! I melt thinking of the food...and I just finished eating it!
The chefs are awesome too; they cook in front of you. I almost caught the shrimp tossed at me, almost.
I was still feeling like jeans but wanted to dress it up so I went with my purple skinny jeans.
I paired with a black and white striped tank, white cardigan (another birthday purchase), and black heels. These are my favorite heels. They rock!
This is such a fun girly outfit! I'm married to a cowboy so of course he got me some nice Ariat boots. Yes, I'm spoiled.
I paired my sweet boots with my lace blouse, knit bolero, floral skirt, brown belt and bronze jewelry. As cheesy as it sounds, I just felt pretty and feminine.
I was feeling "green" for work today. But seriously, I love green...and I love cardigans. I got this extra long one a couple years ago.
Today I paired it with my black vest, zebra halter and grey slacks.
I used gold tones for my eye shadow and similar bronzer on my cheeks.
For my hair I formed a low messy bum on the right side of my head. Whenever I have an updo I try to take advantage and wear dangly earrings! Today I wore my gold chain ones.
