e. you will all receive 15% off at nyds throughout the contest. just enter "apparellel" at checkout.

f. contestants must live in the u.s. or canada. i am so sorry all my out of the country readers. next time!

does that sound like fun or what? i wore one of my old diy tees i made out of an x-large tee i got at the goodwill, for a little inspiration. i am so excited to see what you come up with. time to get creative!


note: i want to credit the kick ass ash fox for inspiring me with the tights. i saw them on her and went on a mission to find some for myself. take a look at her blog, she is a t-shirt designer and fellow stylist. she seriously rocks!!
