- A paint brush
- Baking sheets

It’s no secret that every girl owns a bunch of plain old white tees and tanks – why not take advantage of that instead of hustling to the nearest H&M?

To make a long story short: I went to the store, grabbed some textile colors, googled the YSL logo and got to painting. It’s as easy as that. In order to ensure a long lasting color, I ironed the tank for a couple of minutes – with a baking sheet in between. Et voilà! What it looked like after the first coat:
