Rip-off Artists are the new awesome

So, sometimes k-tron posted about her old navy jeans that she slimmed, cropped and hemmed into some little designer knock-offs, and it reminded me how much i like to do my own rip-offs of all this haute couture for cheap.

I had seen this sweater by Ports 1961 (can you see the neckline? Thats the fun part) a few months back, but couldn't quite bring myself to pay (gulp) $395 for it. I mean, I know it is cashmere and all, but c'mon.

So last night at my craft club I got my own BR sweater and gave embellishing the neckline in the same way a try.

i will probably try again with a sweater that looks a little more like the original, but for now i will just walk around in my $5 rip-off version, sticking it to the designer apparel market

    I'm going to go home and sew in all my boot cut jeans tonight. Then I'm going to sew lace on stuff.

    Or you could try selling it on ebay for lots of money...
    I like it the neckline is very cute and haute couture.

    i once cut the bottom of my jeans and sent them through the washing machince to make them look well-worn and distressed. does that count as sticking it to the designer apparel market?
