Tip Thursday: Recycling old Tshirts

DIY backless top pink summer We all have some Tshirts and tops that we’re kind of bored of them. And sometimes we can easily ‘update’ them by adding something new. That’s what I did with a plain Tshirt yesterday: I cut the back of it and added some fine fabric. Because I didn’t have something like a cordon (or something similar), I cut a small piece from my scarf. After that, I took one pen and started to make small marks on the back of the Tshirt:ย I planned to cut out from the Tshirt approximately 7 cm (2.8 inches). I also marked the holes I was going to cut for the scarf. After I cut everything, I put the scarf like shoe laces and that was all! I’ve took photos to show you the progress, if you have more questions, don’t hesitate to leave me a comment! But I may say it’s a very easy project.


Cu totii avem tricouri pe care nu le mai purtam ca deja ne-am cam plictisit de ele… cea mai buna solutie e sa le dam altora. Dar uneori imi place sa le si folosesc pentru mici proiecte. Cele mai multe le tai si le folosesc la sport, dar de data asta am ales sa fac ceva dragut: Am luat un tricouย pe care l-am taiat in spate. In primul rand am facut mici semne cu o carioca, astfel incat sa tai cat decat simetric. Am planuit sa tai o bucata lata de aproximativ 7 cm. Apoi am facut semne mici pe unde ar trebui sa intre panglica. Aveam in minte sa pun o panglica la spate, ca sireturile la papuci. Pentru ca nu am avut nicio panglica, am taiat o bucatica dintr-o esarfa. Dupa ce am taiat tot, am pus mini esarfa prin gauri si gata! Mi-a luat cam 10 minute totul si a fost foarte usor. Mai jos am pus poze cu pasii pe care i-am facut. Daca aveti intrebari, nu ezitati sa-mi scrieti un comentariu. Voi ce faceti cu tricourile de care v-ati plictisit?DIY backless top pink summer

Rock chic

street style manchester

A new week means a new post! Now, I’m going to be short today. I keep on writing something and then erasing it again and again..it seems my inspiration is nowhere to be found. I started this article yesterday and since then it’s the same: me, staring at the laptop..and constantly changing my mind. At the moment I’m reading an inspirational book by John C. Maxwell and he says: even if you don’t feel inspired, just start doing it. Don’t let that stop you. So here I am, writing about how I can’t write ๐Ÿ™‚ But I hope you get the point – Just do it! (Nike says it as well). This is one of my new year’s resolutions – to be more action oriented. What do you want to accomplish this year? Anything you’d like to share with me?


O noua saptamana, o noua postare! Titlul de ‘Rock chic’ vine de la expresia lui Dan cand m-a vazut si m-am gandit – da…se potriveste ๐Ÿ™‚ Scriam mai sus (in versiunea engleza) ca de ieri ma chinui sa scriu acest articol. Nu am putut sa-mi gasesc inspiratia nicicum… Dar citesc in momentul de fata o carte scrisa de John C. Maxwell care spune sa te apuci de lucru. Chiar daca n-ai inspiratie in momentul respectiv. Sa incepi oricum. Si-asa am inceput sa scriu.. despre cum nu pot sa scriu (if that makes sense). Dar ideea e sa impart sfatul lui, care mie mi se pare foarte bun. E un sfat care s-a transformat demult in sloganul Nike – Just do it! Asta e una din rezolutiile mele pentru anul nou. Voi ce vreti sa realizati in noul an?ย

My first official DIY!

backless Tshirt


I think DIY projects are so cool! So I had to try something too. For my first attempt, I chose to make a sleeveless T-shirt, with fringes in the back. First of all, I chose a T-shirt I knew I won’t feel bad if I ruin it: I asked Dan to give me one of his! (hihihi). Follow the pictures to see what I did!

Imi plac proiectele DIY(do it yourself), asa ca m-am hotarat sa fac si eu unul! Ca inspiratie am ales tricourile de mai sus. Si, ca sa nu regret ca-mi stric vreo haina, l-am rugat pe Dan sa-mi dea un tricou de-al lui ๐Ÿ˜€ Urmariti pozele sa vedeti ce am facut!

As I anticipated, it wasn’t a success! The back is fine, but the front.. there’s too much cleavage! So I won’t wear it outside. I’ll use it at the gym, on top of another top.

Si, dupa cum m-asteptam, n-a fost tocmai un succes! Mi-a iesit un decolteu cam mare in fata, asa ca voi folosi topul la sport, peste un alt top/o bustiera.ย 

But I’m not giving up!
