chronically-ill-victories:


Sometimes a favorite piece is just too comfortable to throw away. I didn’t want to get rid of my perfect fit tee from the GAP so I decided to up-cycle three extra large men’s polo shirts from Goodwill to create a dress inspired by the colorblock dress I saw at ASOS this spring. 

Chic Girl’s Tip: Anytime you plan to up-cycle jersey knit pieces, wash and dry the clothes before cutting them for your projects. For this project, I used the largest shirt as the bottom layer and smallest for the top to make sure the shape of the skirt portion was a-line.

DIY Duct Tape Necklaces via Creme de la Craft
I love that you can play with color and texture when you’re making these pendants, and you don’t have to worry about wasting money because they’re made from duct tape.

Aerial Photos of Abandoned Mansions | Michael Light | Via

Michael Light often snaps his photos from a two-seater plane — at a bumpy 70 mph — that he pilots himself at the same time, but you’d never know it from his well-composed aerial shots. From swimming-pooled suburbs in Phoenix to razed hills awaiting their luxury homes in Nevada, Light has been documenting the western U.S.’s unique topography from the air for the past decade.

In his series on Black Mountain, Nevada, Light’s photos put viewers in the plane with him as he glides over 640 acres of dynamite-flattened hilltops, carved through with pristine roads and cul de sacs linking graded house foundations. But there are no houses. No lawns, no pools, no sidewalks. No guard-staffed gates. This is the site of the Ascaya luxury housing development, which has lain dormant since the economic crash of 2008.
