Hey YKYLF fans, good news! We made it past the first Jane By Design style challenge and are now onto #2! Here’s editor-in-chief Jen’s ongoing chronicle of our quest to get YKYLF mentioned on a JBD episode.

UPDATE 12/19: Want to know how you can help us? Sign up for the “Team YKYLF” newsletter and we’ll sound the horn when a task is completed, and let you know what you can do to help. No spam (pinky swear!) AND one randomly selected subscriber will be featured on YKYLF!

 

The email for Challenge #2 arrived on Friday and said “Using items around your house or your office, create a design on the t-shirt found in your trunk, inspired by a fashion icon. Ask your readers to tell you about their style icons on the JBD Facebook page and mention the name of your blog.

I’ve chosen a style icon that resonates with us here at YKYLF: Aria from Pretty Little Liars. Girlfriend likes to mix textures like nobody’s business, and would probably do this to a plain white t-shirt:

Right?

 

This t-shirt went through some changes. First, a coffee dye, then cut into a halter top, then embellished with hardware and feathers.

Because you know Aria is all about the feathers.

Anchoring the feathers is a rose fashioned out of extra fabric.

Metal, feathers, flowers…she likes to mix it all.

The back is reminiscent of a dress she wore in the pilot.

The t-shirt has been paired with a long lace skirt, much like her getup from “Careful What U Wish 4”.

And if she gets cold, she can top it with a leather motorcycle jacket, as she did in “Je Suis une Amie”.

The more textures the merrier!
