She’s got a lot of kick ass things going for her, including a kick ass haircut, a kick ass sense of style, and thanks to SDV, some kick ass ripped tights.
Allow me to explain.
Before hitting up New York’s first MMP versus BBG last Friday, this fine lady and I consulted regarding her outfit for the evening. Wait, scratch that.
We tore her freakin’ closet apart.
What we came up with? A snazzy vintage belt, skirt-turned-dress [for reals, meant for the waist, not the bust] and after a sheer moment of confusion as to how to handle a tear in her only black tights … Amazing Ripped Tights.
Making your own set of A.R.T.s is an art-form in and of itself. It takes the following things:
1.) Acceptance. You are ripping your tights, and you are going to love it.
2.) Really great nails. Scissors, tweezers, a knife … won’t do the same justice as good ole’ scratchin’ nails.
3.) A good sense of direction. AKA a good eye as where to place new rips, tears, and holes
Andi had all of the above, and more. Check out her self-ripped A.R.T.s below.
Gotta love a girl who knows what Hipsters Hate.
The skirt-turned-dress. Talk about versatile.
I squealed like a pig when seeing this belt. For reals.
Bit of advice: put big holes on the hips. You have more meat there [I know that sounds gross, but tis true]. The long rip darts can go on the calves. It’s like adding cheekbones … a little sexy pizazz.
Not a sexy pizazz: Taking off your shoes and finding old ADIDAS socks [white, no less!] beneath.
Price for your self-made A.R.T.s: ~$6 from local drugstore
Price for ones made by other companies? Well, if its on the runway of Alexander Wang … more than $6, I can assure you.
