They are finally finished!
First day wearing the shorts I made : ) I got these Jordache high wasted jean shorts a while ago at Urban Outfitters. Every time I put them on I didn't like how they fit, there was something missing. Finally I realized what they needed, so I got a hold of my dad's utility knife and some sandpaper and I tore into these shorts. Literally. After I shredded them I still wasn't satisfied, so I had some fun with bleach and fabric paint.
Here's the final product!
What do you think??!
I got so excited about my shorts I didn't even mention my new blazer!
I got this fine thing at a vintage boutique near my house. I am in love with the color.
It's a bit big, but it is so comfortable and perfect on these cooler summer days : )
Although it is fun to go shopping, sometimes I think it is even more rewarding to customize an item to become exactly what you want. I wore my shredded shorts out for the first time today when I went shopping with my mom and actually got a complement on them! It felt so awesome to be able to say that I shredded them like this.
Lets call them, "Originals."
Anyway, it was definitely a productive shopping day and I am so excited about what I bought! I will definitely be posting my new items soon so stay tuned! Lets just say I went to two MAC stores ; ) Oh! And I had to make a COACH run when I saw what was in the window! I couldn't help myself.
I finally got my IMovie working again and I'm so excited to use it!
Hint hint, a future VLOG in the works perhaps?!
So what do you think about the shorts?!
Have you ever customized your own clothing item?
