DIY: Making A Sexier Beast!!!!

Hey Everyone!!! I'm back with another DIY.. This DIY is really a redesign.. 

As some of you may know, Animal Print is back as a Fall/Winter Fashion Trend this Season. Personally, I feel that it never went away and can be use as a neutral and pairs wonderfully with anything in your closet.

Double Brushed Poly Jersey Knit Medium Stripe Black/Ivory
