DIY shredded jeans [gap] // shirt, belt [UO] // shoes [nine west] // necklaces [macy’s, jimmy’z, f21]

As a fashion blogger, it’s pretty obvious that I have a lot of people I “look up to” or inspire me to blog in general. One of those people is Shini of Park and Cube. She’s a graphic designer by trade and has very detailed posts, both pictorally and verbally. She inspired me to really consider and pity my readers when they view my blog. Make it look nice. Make it easy to swallow. But still make it mine. Also, she’s got a really great laid back, season-less style about her, reflecting a windblown lifestyle that flows from London back to Poland and where ever the borders of her world extend. It may seem like a glorified depiction, but I’m gushing so let me gush.

Anyways, her DIY posts (and she has many) are so nicely detailed and the photographic moments perfectly settled between airy and razor sharp. I slashed up these jeans last night thanks to her careful instruction.

There is something about destroying that is like creative. It is liberating and satisfying, not unlike birth (though I’m not really qualified say that yet as I have never been preggers). I cut myself 5 times on my left hand- should’ve worn gardening gloves-but it was worth it. The result is a beautiful cascade of denim shreds and hanging threads; it really is more delicate than it is hard rock. The look of course, demands that though. It demands the sort of trailor trash chic that seems to be popular a la K.Moss, so I sort of oblidged, but more of as a Park and Cube tribute than the later. Come to think of it, “Shini jeans” has a really charming ring to it doesn’t it? Mahaha, I’m so funny. From now on, these will be referred to as thus. Hope you don’t mind Shini!
