DIY: make your own crop top

Hey everyone :)
I was cleaning out my closet and found a t-shirt that I used to like a lot, but stopped wearing beacause I kind of grew out of it and it was too short to wear. So I thought instead of throwing it away, why not try and make a crop top?
Here's what I did:

1. Draw lines where you are going to cut (use a ruler to make sure it's symmetrical). You can choose how wide you want your straps to be. If you're using a t-shirt that a little small like mine was, make sure to cut it out a little lower on the sides.

2. Cut the sleeves of. When you're done cutting, pull a little along the edges to make sure the edges curl up a little.

3. Cut out the neck (only in the front, so don't keep the t-shirt folded while you do this!). You can choose if you want a round or a V-neck. Don't forget to pull at the edges!

4. Turn the shirt around and cut out the back. I chose too stay high because of the print, but you can cut deeper if you like.

5. Cut off the seems at bottom + pull at the edges to get the same rolled up look.

6. Now you can wear it! I'm wearing it with a high wasted skirt, but you can wear it any way you like. If you want to make a normal tank top, you can use the same techniques, you just need a larger t-shirt to begin with.

Hope you liked it! Let me know what you think and feel free to try it out :)

So it was recently brought to my attention that a lot of celebrities have look-alikes. It kind of makes you wonder if there's someone out there that looks a lot like you!
Here of some pictures of celebs I think definitely look alike.

Dress code: Elegant

So as I told you, on vacation there was a different dress code every night. This night: elegant! I wore a black dress (see http://ekatya.blogspot.be/2012/01/little-black-dress.html), a sparkly necklace with matching earrings, black pumps and some silver eyeshadow.
What do you think?

Club Med Yasmina

So I just got back from a wonderful vacation in Morocco at the Club Med Yasmina!

Even though it rained for 2 days it really was an amazing holiday! We went swimming, played tennis, tried archery, golf, the flying trapeze and so much more :)
Every night there was a dress code: either a color or a style that you should wear. Since you have a limited closet while on vacation, it wasn't always easy to find something suitable. However, it was fun to see how all the guests applied the dress codes.
I wanted to show you guys some of the outfits that I chose.
First night: black and red:
Since I didn't bring any red clothes, I chose a black strapless dress, black purse, black flats and red feather earrings. What do you think?

I'll show you guys some more outfits next time!
