Day 2: Stussy World Tour tee, Slip Dress from Urban Outfitters, Customized Ironworker’s Jacket with Crooks & Castle’s Patch, Customized AE Distressed Boyfriend Jeans with Embroidered Flower Patch, White AF1 Low.

Clearly I like to customize my clothing, so it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly where they’re from. This is the best – I never have to worry about someone having the exact same outfit! It’s super easy to customize, I usually shop in arts and crafts stores for patches and just iron or sew them onto clothes that I got tired of wearing as-is.

In the case of this Ironworker’s flannel jacket, I cut up an old Crooks and Castles tee that I had and sewed the graphic onto the back of the jacket. Took maybe an hour because of the size of the patch, but was super easy! I get many compliments on this jacket and “where’d you get that from?” and it feels awesome to say “I made it!”
