OK, I do have to confess I fell into this trap, face first and I am trying hard to get out, I really am… I’m a Phillip Lim enthusiast, but most of all, I am a sportswear enthusiast, or to be more precise, I would own a million sweatshirts If I could. Unfortunately for me, my apartment is only 65 Sq meters, so theres no space for that amount of sweatshirts and most importantly, I just cant justify to myself paying 490 euro for a sweatshirt, yeah 490 Euro.

I remember when I first laid my eyes on 3.1 Phillip Lim’s resort collection,  I truly feared for my wallet, but then it occurred to me that I could DIY my favorite piece .  I went and found a very similar sweatshirt, bought some zippers and did it, bam, 490 euro ended up costing me around 60 and it still looked very -VERY- similar. Sure, its not the original one, but I know that I would have gotten over it eventually and 490 is a very high price to pay for that risk.

You can see my very own DIY here and were I finally wore it -during NYFW- here.

P.S- I still kind of, sort of want the grey version, dammit! :S
