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.

“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. 

“You’re welcome.”

“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.

Stevenson’s tweet about her pajamas has more than 373,500 likes, retweets, and replies, and her Instagram post about the project has more than 12,000 likes.

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.”

Mattel/ Instagram

The fact that the early days of Barbie were not quite so inclusive to all of us comes as no surprise. The blonde, impossibly figured doll with a penchant for similar-looking friends is a far cry away from the Barbie of today who has friends of all shapes, races, sizes, sexual identities, and abilities. Even better, today’s Barbie crew includes dolls who give queer children a broader playgound for their imagination.

Recently, Barbie has added a new addition to her friend group whose bringing more power to her LGTBQ fans.

Social media has dubbed the LGBTQ positive Aimee Song doll Barbie‘s girlfriend.

Twitter’s latest excitement is about a theory that Barbie and Aimee Song are dating. Photos of Mattel’s doll Aimee Song doll show her wearing a “Love Wins” T-shirt that supports LGBTQ+ rights. The Mattel doll was inspired by fashion blogger Aimee Song and recently caught renewed attention in a viral post shared to Twitter.

The “Love Wins” photos are only now going viral but were actually released in November 2017.

The photos of Barbie and the Aimee doll were shared to Twitter last Monday by user @kissevermore and now has Twitter debating whether the two are dating.

The pictures of Barbie and Aimee show the two dolls eating avocado toast. petting a dog, and smiling at each other. The images have fans questioning when Barbie came out and how she managed to nail a hot girlfriend before they did.

Even REAL Aimee Song weighed in on the images to confirm the relationship.

“I am the girlfriend,” she tweeted with a photo of herself and the Aimee Song doll. 

While Mattel has yet to officially identify Barbie as a lesbian, the original Instagram posts related to the Love Wins Barbies are proof that she is at least an ally.

Confirmed or not, true or not, one of the best parts of Barbie is that she is meant to be whoever her fans want her to be.

Newly elected member of the Kansas House of Representatives, Christina Haswood, paid tribute to her heritage on the day of her swearing-in ceremony with the ultimate power look. Dressed in traditional Navajo attire, the 26-year-old made history on Monday when she became the  youngest member of the Kansas legislature, and only its second Native American member. 

Haswood took her oath of office wearing traditional Diné regalia which she made with the help of her mother, and partner.

Wearing moccasins, a velveteen skirt, and a red blouse embellished with silver string made a point to highlight her heritage and identity. Speaking to Vogue in an interview about her clothing, Haswood explained that she “wanted to honor my ancestors and all their sacrifices for me to be here and in this job. I wanted to honor my family, who has taught me how to be a strong, young, Diné woman while growing up in Lawrence, Kansas.” 

In addition to her dress, Haswood wore heirlooms given to her by family members which included a squash blossom necklace, a belt given to her by her uncle, and an additional belt given to her by her shimá sání (grandmother). Her great grandmother also gave her the earrings she wore. In addition, she wore a tsiiyéé (a Navajo-style hair tie) that she made with her shimá sání.

“The significance of these pieces are priceless,” Haswood explained to Vogue. “Many of the pieces I wore that day only come out on special occasions, because of how old they are. I don’t have the funds to be a collector, so many of my pieces have been passed down to my mother, who lets me borrow them.”

Haswood gave a behind-the-scenes look of her swearing-in attire on a TikTok video that has gone viral with more than 500,000 views.

In the video, Haswood readies her hair and does her makeup before eventually getting help from her mother and grandmother to get dressed.

Haswood won the Democratic primary after running unopposed for a seat in the Kansas state legislature that represents District 10.

With degrees in public health from Haskell Indian Nations University and Arizona State University, Haswood also received a master’s degree in public health management from the Kansas University Medical Center.

At the moment, she also serves as a research assistant with the National Council of Urban Indian Health and the Center for American Indian Community Health. There she studies nicotine addiction in tribal youth and researches the impact of COVID-19 on indigenous groups.

“Just two years ago I was in graduate school, and my greatest worries were about getting a job and student loans,” Haswood said in an interview with the Daily Kansan. “Today, the world has changed.”

According to Esquire, four Native candidates ran for office in Kansas. This week, each of them won their primary elections.
