I cannot get enough of the ridiculous choices of the 80s.  Here I have taken a perfectly good Forever 21 turtleneck sweater dress, cut out the high neck (sometimes I have nonchalant panic attacks when these things are snuggling my neck; you might think I'm fine, but I'm going bonkers inside), then I cut and ripped down the center, tried it on and ripped some more until I was satisfied:

The simple gray undershirt with the cute white buttons was perfect for this outfit.  Keep lots of simple undershirts in your drawers--they go a long way.  I'm a huge fan of layering and accessorizing; you can still support local stores without having to spend a ton of money---you'll look different and spice up your old garb!
