How to dress like a rock star for $9.99

Got a rock star party in your near future?

You might already have the wardrobe and not even know it.


I spent $3 on the denim shrug thing (with quite possibly the longest sleeves in the history of the world) at a thrift store and $6.99 on the bright green shirt (tax included).  Everything else was already ours.

The black tee was too small, but once I cut it up, there was plenty of breathing room.  I cut off the sleeves and neck and made it one shouldered.  I sliced up the front and then fringed the bottom.

The skirt is actually a fancy-ish holiday skirt, but you’d never know it when it’s paired with all the other things.

The tights came from Target at Halloween.

The shoes were purchased with Christmas money from Grandma and Grandpa.  (Macy will do *just* about anything for a new pair of shoes.)

The guitar came from the Wii.

And some leftover Halloween make was borrowed from a neighbor to KISS-ify her face.

Not bad for $9.99, ey?
