The location: DTLA
The look: DIY ripped denim
I was going through my closet some 2 weeks ago, and came across so many pairs of jeans that have been left abandoned. I know, these jeans aren't linkable, hence the reason the majority of your bloggers are always sporting new clothing. But my struggle, and i believe a very realistic struggle is, i can't afford an entire new outfit for each set of pictures i take. And if i do end up with tons of new clothing, what happens to the old pieces i once upon a time loved? Turn your old jeans into new jeans. BOOM. Ripped/ distressed/ raw hem denim is huge right now, and quite possibly the easiest effect to achieve. Scissors, a blade, maybe some sand paper, even. And the beauty of this is you can rip/distress as much or as little as you like. #freetheknee is a very popular area of distress, and one of my personal favs. But one effect that i friggin loooove, is ripping the hem open at the bottom and cutting the inside seam slightly open. I like to think of this as 'freeing your jean's inner rebel. Yea, all clothing have inner rebels. Intrigued?
oh yea, links to some of my fav skinny jeans (some ripped, some not), below.
