T-shirt Update Kate Spade Style

Bonjour everyone! I am back from an amazing trip to Paris, oh lala what a city. 
Returning with a massive flu and pumped full of antibiotics, oh well.. all worth it! 
I will give you all a load-down of the amazing places we visited as soon as I'm fever free. 

I am sure you are all aware of my Kate Spade obsession by now. The bi-daily email update always bring me so much inspiration and this lovely T was just screaming DIY. 
How cool is it that they are making something as casual as a T into such a pulled together piece. 
I decided to update my fav J.crew T and add a black bow.

All you need is a T, needle and thread, and some gros grain ribbon (I got mine from a fancy shopping bag, how great is that?? recycling rocks! This specific bags is from one of my fav shoe stores! Its in Trondheim, so me and my mum always visit when we are up there! Check out their web site here. ). 30 min and some sowing later, tata! Can't wait to wear it!!

  11. I absolutely love the look of your shirt, and have a TON of grosgrain ribbon around here from various other projects. However, what you used looks like twill tape, and I like the look of it much better than I think the grosgrain ribbon would look. :) What a great way to add interest to a simple t-shirt!
