We’ve been obsessing over Michelle Williams and Busy Philipps hand-painted leather Veda BFF jackets since they took them out for a stroll back in September, followed by Sarah Michelle Gellar and Food Stirs co-creator Gait Laibow, who wore them at the airport. But at $1,320 apiece, they weren’t exactly budget-friendly. Enter Lucy Hale and bestie Annie Leonard, who showed off an affordable, DIY version that’s every bit as cool as the original.
Rather than shelling out for the look, TV producer Leonard took what looks like some simple white paint to a pair of denim jackets to recreate the adorable broken-heart design. “BB girl made us jackets,” the Life Sentence star wrote on her Instagram page, adding “Blue jean babies.”
While there were some subtle differences in Leonard’s version — she split the words up slightly differently, for instance — the overall effect was the same, letting the world know these two always have the other’s back (literally).
Not only are these jackets the cutest, they can also be done on the cheap: All you’ll need are two matching jackets (any fabric will do), a touch of creativity, and a little bit of fabric paint or spray paint of your choosing.
Voila! You’ll instantly be the most fabulous pair of pals around!
