You don't know what love is, you just do as you're told

This morning I quite literally attacked an old pair of jeans with a bread knife. Not quite Balmain, but this is how they turned out...                   


T-shirt - New Look, Necklace - Mum! (probably Accessorize), Jeans - River Island, trashed myself, Blazer - Bershka, Portugal (:

Aaaand I thought I'd tell you I'm now on lookbook. Thanks Bryanboy, ilysm!

  1. Aw your jeans are ace! Whenever I try to rip something tastefully I ruin it completely.

    I love your blazer too.

  4. Great DIY! It works really well that the jeans are so skinny--they almost look like leggings.

  25. love how you totally nuked them pants. what i do is i nuke them with sandpaper--- it helps with those "natural" looking rips. your's turned out so well.
