Instead of investing in an entirely new bathing suit for our family vaca to Maui, Hi, I decided to use my creative juices (lately attributed to Pinterest) and make my own! One night when I should have been asleep and was pinning like a mad women until the wee hours of 2am, I stumbled upon this photo.
I instantly thought it would be the perfect addition to my swim suit collection. That top was priced for $98 and I knew that I could make it for half, at least! So I started scouring the internet for a cute black top that I could bedazzle the sh*t out of. I have been known for bedazzling many things- Seahawks jerseys, halloween costumes, crunk cups with friends in HS... you name it. I think my bedazzling started at an early age with dance costumes.
I found the retro styled top on Victoria's Secret and the pyramid studs on eBay. About a week later, my supplies arrived and I got to work. Poking those studs through layers of fabric wasn't the easiest thing in the world and left me with no feeling in my fingers, but I was really happy with the outcome!
Voila! Here I am in Hawaii wearing the suit with some black VS cheeky bottoms that I already owned! Best part, one of a kind suit and cost me only $45!
