DIY: Designer parody “Homies” T-Shirt

      I have been coveting a designer homage or designer parody t-shirt (a fun twist of a major designers classic logo shirt) since it first graced the body of Rihanna sometime last year.  Typically speaking I'm usually an early adopter of trends, but I will be the first to admit I’m late on this one. Here’s why: I decided I wanted the “Homies” tee since it was such a stark contrast between the actual designer (Hermes) and the concept, but when looked in to actual purchasing the famed Brian Lichtenberg tee I realized that they were either labeled New York or Los Angeles. I decided I wanted a custom tee or a totally ambiguous one. So what’s a girl to do? That’s right adventurers I made one.

      The idea was instantaneous, the action however was delayed (its a year later lol). Using a thrift men's t-shirt and the brand new Yudu screen printing machine that’s being taking over my bedroom for almost a year  I made my own custom “Homies” t-shirt. Styling the shirt was difficult because its a size 1x men's!!!! Hence the partial front tuck lol. I loved the finally look paired with my faux leather pants, gold wedges, and statement necklace I think its HAUTE! LOL. Unfortunately I do believe that once the warmer weather comes back the trend will completely die. You be the judge!  What do you think about homage tees? Have you ever tried personal screen printing? Would you rock it?
