This DIY is a punk inspired vest I am working on.
This use to be my mothers acid wash denim jacket from the 80's,
when despite her constant slander of my wardrobe probably resembled more of my style today than she'd ever care to admit.
Cut off the sleeves of course, studded the front pocket
(studsandspike.com of course),
and used neon pink studs on the back to make the cross, that was a bitch to make...
And no this was never an attempt to offend anyone
but just as a stylish rebellion against institutionalization,
as well as my fetish for religious iconography with views more in line with atheism.
I hope to keep adding to it until its a golden piece...stay tuned.
