but... i simply cannot pay $40 for a tshirt.
so, i made my own version!
DIY! punk ethos in action! my boyfriend is so proud.
it was really quick and easy. i just found a simple drawing of the eiffel tower online and added the phrase "i live for fashion" in french - printed it out backwards onto iron-on transfer paper and ironed it right on an old tee i got for $3 on sale at Target (the ones in the sleepwear section are the best cause they are the tissue tees)!
took no time at all and i was done in time to get him to snap a few quick pics and debut it for his brother's birthday dinner. it feels so good to get compliments on a look and get to brag that that it is entirely thrifted (with the exception of the heels which i got at TJ Maxx and the tee which, as i mentioned, is originally from Target) and somewhat handmade. :)
ps - it's truly "fresh off the presses" in the pics so it's pulling funny from being stiff but i'm really excited to see what it looks like after it's worn-in and been washed a few times - hope it fades a little and gets soft so it will have a slightly more vintage feel to it.
pps - if you enlarge the middle photo you can also glimpse the amazing charm necklace the BF gave me for our anniversary - it's vintage and has an anchor, heart and cross for faith, love, and charity respectively. love!
