"Anybody pretending to be anything other than who you really are, you will never ever reach your personal potential" -Oprah Winfrey

This was my DIY dress. I get bored very easily and feel like I'm always competing with myself. As always, I got bored with this black dress so I rummaged through my closet and found a different dress that was leopard. I cut the leopard dress and made it into a crop top shirt. With the left over fabric that was leopard, I put it on this black dress and also made leopard shoulder pieces...and this was the final product!
