Free Idea

Free People is one of my favorite brands because of its' boho, hand crafted, casual look. 
Unfortunately the prices are not casual...
this sweatshirt with trims was $88.

So I purchased a $15.60 light weight sweatshirt from Forever 21...

and my next trip to the fabric district in LA I selected a bunch of trims.
( I took the sweatshirt with me to be certain that trims looked good and it took about 35 minutes to select all the different trims that still worked together ).
Approximately $22 in trims.

Laid out the trims and then began the nightly ritual of hand sewing on some trims while watching Hulu on my computer.

Had to edit my trims when I realized the trims would go past my elbow. 
Unfortunately I neglected to try on the Free People sweatshirt so I don't know how high the trims went up the sleeve.

I really am lovin' my finished trimmed sweatshirt. 

Thanks Free People for the free idea!
