DIY Inkblot Tees

DSC_1114 DSC_1264blog DSC_1218blog DSC_1269blog DSC_1122 copy DSC_1170 DSC_1197 On Mallory: diy h&m tee, c/o lacepipe skirt, thrifted loafers via crossroadstrading, c/o jewelmint thorn bracelet
On Whitney: diy h&m tee, h&m skirt, free people jacket, c/o love cortnie clutch, c/o sheinside studded loafers, asos cuff

For those of you who watched Project Runway All Stars, our bias was Mondo.  His designs were always quirky-done-right!   His therapy collection inspired us to do these inkblot tees, which were extremely easy and fun to make.  With our completed inkblots, we did the Rorschach test on ourselves and both coincidentally came up with animal-related interpretations--Mal sees a panda on her tee and Whit sees the dorsal view of an animal's skeleton on hers :P

Recently Whit's boyfriend brought his car to Berkeley, which means we get to really explore the South Bay.  We're super excited to try new restaurants and to visit new places.  This also means more photos of us out and about away from our usual haunts :).
