OLD JEANS MADE NEW





Vintage blazer // Wilfred libre t-shirt // AE braided belt // DVF sunglasses // DIY jeans // Dolce Vita pumps // American Apparel small leather pouch 

It's DIY season y'all! In the spring, my sister and I love driving out of the city to hit up the flea markets in search of DIY projects. There's nothing but fresh air, sunshine, and bins upon bins of junk to dig through - I can't wait to get back out there! 

I've already warmed up my DIY muscles with this easy denim refresh. I got the idea by being insanely bored with all the skinny jeans in my closet, but not wanting to buy anything new. So I took an old pair of jeans and cut about a three inch slit on both sides. I love how it gives my jeans just a hint of disheveled grunginess!

Have you done any DIY projects recently? I'd love to see!

  6. I love the colour of your vintage blazer - it's beautiful! The DIY slits in your jeans allow of the pretty yellow colour of your Dolce Vita pumps to show more. I love Spring and seeing all the pretty fashion colours in Fbloggers' OOTDs!

  7. Love this post. I've a DIY itch too. Were these guys originally flares or skinnies before the cut?
