When I saw Lena's post, I was immediately inspired. While thrifting later that week, I actually came across these awesome (men's) Silver jeans. I used to be a total sucker for Silver jeans when I was younger - they were my absolute favourite. Now, they don't exactly do much for my body type, but I'll always have love. The men's version, on the other hand, were exactly what I was looking for though: great wash, thick waistband, large back pockets and a fab distressed look ... in my size! The woman at the cash confirmed they were men's jeans to ensure I still wanted them - ha, that's why I wanted them!
After washing and drying the jeans, I went at them with the scissors to create the perfect denim cut offs.
The length was still a little too long so...
...I cut 'em shorter
Next I cut slits on the sides
Then frayed them up with a knife and scissors along the raw edge
(once they are washed, they will fray more)
