This Woman Just Duped Kim Kardashian’s Cozy Skims With A $25 Blanket From Walmart
This Vlogger Came Up With A Genius Hack To Get You Kim Kardashian’s Kim K dropped a collection of super-soft cozy-pajamas. But the fuzzy separates are pretty expensive. Just one part of the tank, shorts and cardigan co-ord, will set you back $52. Skim customers have to pay more than $200 for the three pieces! So it wasn’t late until one smart and resourceful woman shared her own DIY version of the outfit and set twitter on fire.
This vlogger came up with a hack to get Kim K’s Cozies for less
“Word on the street is that Kim K’s charging like $250+ for this whole fit,” Kheumani Stevenson said in her now viral video, “that we just made for $25” she added. Stevenson got crafty with a $25 plush blanket from, none other than trusty old Walmart. The blanket looks just as soft as the Skims knit fabric tbh.
Kheumani shared the recipe for her masterpiece on YouTube.
Stevenson created her own three-piece pj set and shared a step-by-step tutorial on her YouTube for all of us broke mortals to try it out.
“I heard Kim K charging $250+ for this set & I just made it for $25 out of a blanket I got from Walmart. You’re welcome,” Stevenson wrote in a tweet that’s now been retweeted more than 55 thousand times. The crafty influencer created her own version of the Bone tank, pants, and robe that look just as soft as the original, and all for only $25.
Stevenson says the set reminded her of a blanket.
In an interview with Insider, Stevenson shared part of her process and her Eureka moment. “The Skims pajama set reminded me of a cozy blanket, so I knew that would be the best material alternative.”
Kheumani Stevenson is a college student and influencer who frequently shares fashion and beauty videos on YouTube.
As a self-taught seamstress, she knew that sewing the pajamas could be easy enough for others to re-create, she said.
Stevensons is a Kardashian fan, but the set was priced too high.
Though Stevenson browsed the Skims site and looked at its numerous loungewear pieces, she was inspired by the brand’s new Cozy Collection, which she described as “very cute and creative.” In particular, she was drawn to the brand’s $52 knit tank, $88 knit pants, and $128 knit robe. She could see herself wearing them…but dropping that kind of money? Not really.
She didn’t love the price point of each piece and quickly noticed that other Twitter users felt the same.
This motivated her to “re-create the look for a cheaper price,” she said, as she set out to find an inexpensive material that matched the soft fabric of the Skims pajamas. Though it might seem complicated to actually make a pajama set and robe from scratch, Stevenson proved that it can actually be quite simple. To make things even easier, she used clothes she already owned as a template to be sure her new pajamas would fit.
People loved her DIY
“I used a crop top, pajama pants, and a robe from my closet,” Stevenson said. “Using as many existing supplies as possible helps to reduce the cost of the re-creation.” “It’s very warm, cozy, and perfect for the cooler weather,” Stevenson said of her pajama set.
The influencer’s post about the Skims hack has gone viral.
She’s inspired some people to re-create the pjs themselves.
“@Kheumani made Kim’s new clothing line out of a $25 Walmart blanket so i took inspo & designed my own lil fuzzy set” wrote another Twitter user alongside photos of her own take on the cozy set.
This isn’t Stevenson’s first DIY.
“I’ve been upcycling sleeping bags, blankets, and old clothes for a few years now,” Stevenson told Insider. “But after I made this pajama set, I definitely received the most compliments, comments, and inquiries.
Her followers even want to buy the set from her.
“A lot of people said they want to re-create the look, but I receive more inquiries about buying a set from me!” she continued. “I got an overwhelming amount of messages and tweets. I’m so grateful and excited.”
But Stevenson wants other people to create their own clothes
Though the influencer has yet to hear from Skims or Kardashian West herself, Stevenson said she still loves “Kim K., her products, and what she represents in the fashion industry.”
