Posted Thursday, the TikTok has garnered over 3 million views as of Monday — and has received mixed reviews from social media users.

White's TikTok account, which has 4 million followers as of Monday, consists mostly of White's "outfit of the day" and "get ready with me" videos. The 27-year-old Los Angeles-based influencer began making TikToks during the pandemic, according to WWD magazine.
In Thursday's video, White cut the top of the jumpsuit first, creating a long-sleeve crop top. Then, she cut off the jumpsuit's legs to create a miniskirt.
White then holds the legs of the Prada jumpsuit to the camera as she explains how they'll be incorporated into the final look. "Because we don't waste in this house, we're gonna use these as legwarmers," White said.
She finished the ensemble with a Prada belt and a Prada bra under the crop top. To accessorize, White added two Prada hair clips and a white flower pin from the fashion house's show invitation.
In the comments section, White clarified that she paid for the jumpsuit herself, and that it wasn't sent to her from Prada.
TikTok users weighed in on the DIY look in the over 850 comments, as of Monday. One user commented, "Most expensive 5 minute crafts ever," to which White replied, "Hahahahahha 100%."
Some commenters thought she "slayed" the final product, but admitted that they were scared by the cutting process.
Other social media users weren't as thrilled with the slashed Prada look. "I am mortified….." one user wrote.
"I'm mad cause she didn't need to cut it up to make it more chic and wearable," one Twitter user reacted.
White took to Instagram on Friday to share photos of the final look, with the caption, "@prada .. with a little shaping ✂️." The post has garnered almost 130,000 likes and over 250 comments at the time of publication.
The fashion house's Fall/Winter Womenswear Fashion Show was filled with preppy collars, blazers, and trousers. The guest list included other content creators, like lifestyle guru Aimee Song and beauty influencer Nathalie Fanj. Actors Maya Hawke and Emma Roberts were also in attendance.
Prada did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
