CHI flatiron $100, Drugstore.com
I finally broke down and bought a CHI ceramic hair straightening iron a month ago after hearing great things about it and seeing the results of my friends' hair. I always wore my hair pulled back because my hair is so thick and when I tried straightening it with my old flat iron, it wouldn't get as straight as I wanted it to be. Since I've been using the CHI, my hair is so soft and as straight as I want it to be, I mean my hair really lays down. I was so used to buying flat irons for under $20 and never in my life would buy a flat iron over $100. This is the best straightener I've used and I'm so glad that I've bought one. I love it!

What you need:
- Plain halter tank top with skinny straps
- three chunky, dangly gold chains with different sizes of links- small, medium, and large
- needle and thread
What to do:
- Drape the medium and large chains across the neckline of the tank top.
- Use a needle and thread to handstitch the last links of each chain to the front of the tank.
- Cut both of the tank's front straps, then on each side, insert a 3-inch piece of the small chain.
- Fold each cut end of the straps through the chain loops and sew shut.
