Muscle Tank; The finale!


Today is the finale of our “DIY muscle tank” outfit combos. We had casual/chic, then I gave you sporty, yesterday was full of clean and sharp details, and today, I give to you something that is pretty much expected of a rocker tee…an everyday, grungish look! Something I would definitely wear to a concert, or just strolling around doing some shopping.

A pair of jean shorts, some black high-knee socks, a striped cardigan, all topped off with the ultimate cherry; a classic pair of black Chucks. Comfy, cute, and can really be worn all day, everyday. This whole outfit makes me feel like a teenager again ;)

And there you have it! The conclusion to this weeks DIY! One shirt, 4 ways. Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did. Did anyone jump on board with me during this? If so, I would love to hear about how you styled, or would style your own muscle tee! While on this note, I would also love to bring you some more DIY’s in the future! Realists, any suggestions?? I’m very interested to know what you would like to see next! Until the next post, as always, muscle tee or not, stay classy ;)

Muscle Tank; chic


As mentioned in yesterday’s post, I decided to go with a more chic ensemble for my newly made muscle tee. I chose to pair it with blue pants, and a bright turquoise blazer to give it some color!

I know this post is supposed to be about my new DIY muscle tee, but I just had to say that I absolutely love these blue pants! I was strolling through Simons, saw them featured on a mannequin and knew I just had to have them! The fabric on the pants are so nice and soft which makes them super extra comfy. I find these pants to be quite classy, yet at the same time, still has a subtle touch of casualness with the elastic hem.

As I was sitting in my room, trying to decide which shoes would go best, the hubby and I both agreed with these Jeffrey Campbell‘s. I scored these babies for an awesome price on Solestruck‘s Black Friday sale. A simple, black pump, which is clearly, far from simple, just like me! And as for the whole ensemble put together, I have to say that it has been deemed my favorite one so far this week! I was obviously happy with my other ones, I would never post anything I didn’t think looked good ;), but this one was special. I can’t wait to go out for a dinner or some drinks just so I can have an excuse to wear this all again.

Tomorrow is the final DIY muscle tee outfit! Don’t forget to check in and see how it all ends! Stay classy, realists!

Muscle Tank; Sporty with a twist!


Here we are! Outfit #2 of our DIY muscle tee! Yesterday’s outfit was a casual/chic one, today, how’s about something a little sportier?

As I was sitting and staring into my closet, I kept thinking “How can I make this work, looking sporty, but without being too literal?” Here it is! A bodycon dress (which has also made an appearance once before, but as a striped version), with the tee paired over it, perfect! Throw on some black tights, since the weather’s still a little brisk, and combined them with wedged sneakers. The great thing about the versatility of this outfit is that you can really throw on any comfy sneaker, boot, whatever your preference may be, and it’ll work just as great!

Tomorrow, I think I’m going to throw in some classier fabrics, so stay tuned!! And as always, stay classy ;)

Muscle Tank; Casual / Chic


“Rain, rain, go away! Come again…” never?? ;) The weather is warming up in Montreal. Spring is finally creeping up on us! Which, sadly, does bring us days of rain. Just because the day’s a little on the gloomy side, doesn’t stop me from bringing you outfit #1 of my DIY muscle tee!

Today, I wanted to bring you a casual/chic outfit that can really be worn on so many occasions. Movies, lunch, dinner, and even drinks with the girls. Casual enough to not be too dressy, but still has that pop with the extra high, skinny heels (love a great single-sole heel! No pain, no gain ;))!

Instead of pairing this all with a simple pair of jeans, I just bought these awesome camo pants and knew that they were perfect for this outfit! Camouflage print is showing up everywhere this season, and rightfully so! It’s a chic looking pair of pants with an added touch of ruggedness. Topped off with a faux-leather bomber. Outfit #1!

Make sure to check in tomorrow for outfit #2! Will I be going for an everyday ensemble, or something a little more dressy? You’ll soon find out! Until tomorrow, stay classy, realists!

DIY: Muscle Tank

Hello everyone!! Excuse me for being on hiatus for a little over a week, but I had a crazy week. Fear not, my friends, for I am back and at full force!! And what better way to start back then with a little something I’ve yet to do on the blog; DIY muscle tank!

I am a huge lover of a great muscle tank, and I am also guilty of owning way too many concert tees from way back. Although, I did have to get rid of a few (It was becoming borderline hoarding!), I did manage to keep a good amount for myself. So, for you today, I have a step-by-step on how to get a pretty bad-ass rocker-muscle-tee. Don’t worry, this can be done with any ol’ plain shirt you have sitting around!

Step 1:


First off, you want to get all your materials together. One shirt, a pair of scissors, and a few pins

Step 2:


What I did was put the shirt on and then proceeded to put pins where I wanted to cut from (shoulder width, and how low)

Step 3:


Let the cutting begin! To make it a little easier, start by folding the shirt in half and then cut so you can make sure it’s even

Step 4:


Ta-da! Now, you’ve got yourself an awesome muscle tee! Don’t forget to always try it back on and make sure the shape is to your liking :)

Easy as 1-2-3! So simple, yet can be paired in so many ways! Not sure exactly how?? Don’t worry that’s where I come in! For the remainder of this week, I will be pairing this exact shirt with 4 different outfits, let it be casual, girly, or even a little more classy! So don’t forget to check in daily to get a few tips on how to pair your DIY muscle tee! Until tomorrows outfit, stay classy, realists! ;)
