Refashioning old shirts...

Hey there! 
Today's post is a quick semi-DIY one [semi since its not too hard and I am not going into details of how I did this no brainer refashion:)]

So I had this top that was mostly an impulse purchase from a brand called Kazo because they had a 60% off sale but whenever I tried wearing it, I just felt too frumpy in it...It was one of those things which you know is nice when its in your closet and you wonder why you don't wear it, but something is just not right when you put it on.(you know what I mean, don't ya?!)
Well, so obviously this item has been sitting at the back of my closet since a very long long time until today; my simple refashion consisted of just snipping off the long sleeves and the extra length; I hemmed the cut ends and added this pretty lace at the sleeve and that't it! My top (me thinks) looks much more wearable now and I will at least manage to get some use out of it!

Hope you lovelies are having an awesome weekend:) Stay happy and gorgeous!
XOX!!!
