OUTFIT | DIY DISTRESSED RIPPED JEANS


I do love a bit of DIY, sooooo I was really excited to share these jeans that I custom designed with you all. 

I have always loved ripped jeans for as long as I can remember and guess what they're hot again, so you all need a pair! They're so quick and easy to make so why not try it out. ;-)

I made the holes in my jeans rather big because I prefered the statement look, plus its suitable now the weather is so warm to show off some leg. But, you can create smaller or even larger rips if you prefer that, that's the benefit of customising your own jeans. 

What You Need:

Fabric Chalk / Pen
Fabric Scissors
Grater
Tweezers

1. To get the perfect distressed / ripped jeans, firstly use fabric chalk (or a pen) to mark out where exactly you want to cut. 

(The perfect places to cut are around the knee cap area and lower thigh, but you can cut where ever you want!)

2. Use a pair of clean and sharp fabric scissors to cut out the fabric along the lines that you have marked.

3. Use a grater to fray and distress the edges of the holes and create the 'worn out look'. Then, literally grate the surface of your jeans. (Sounds crazy, but it works).

4. To create slits, cut horizontal lines and use tweezers carefully pull out the blue threads (ensuring to leave the white threads). Use a grater to create more fraying. 

After one wash, the cuts in the jeans will naturally fray out a little more. 

And it's that simple!

Oh and how cool is this top1? It's by Noisy May, one of the brands that we also own! It's available on their website and should be available to purchase on ASOS.com. 

Top - Noisy May

Thanks for reading again and I hope you enjoyed. Have a fab week!

TODAY I WISH I WORE | HOLO..

silver

When Jonathan Saunders launched his 2013 collection, I fell in love and never returned. 
I'm still in love with holographic pieces. I just love the fun and experimental nature of the colour, plus it fits in perfectly with the colour palette of my wardrobe. 

Sometimes it's nice to experiment and play around with fun colours and merge them with your own style. 

These are some pieces that I'm lusting over and although I have a couple that look very similar, I just want these pieces right now! I'm currently a fan of fresh, clean looking outfits that still convey a bit of urban edge and rebel to them. 

What do you guys think of the holographic trend? Could you rock it?

OUTFIT | URBAN ROSE


Hey dolls!

I just got back from a spontaneous getaway that allowed me to breathe, stretch and shake off a few things that had been on my mind as of recent! And as you all know, it was long awaited, so I was very happy to get away. I plan to take life a little more easy and do that a little more often this year!

I'm all about my two pieces (twosies) this season. I grabbed this matching two piece from the Vero Moda  sample sale in the office one day. I particularly like the unusual texture, exposed zip detail and the overall neutral colour. 

I'm re-kindling my original love for silver all of a sudden, I think I over-used gold last year.
I gave the whole look an urban twist by throwing on my beenie and adding my silver snake necklace (gifted by AURA Ldn, who are launching soon).

Necklace // AURA Ldn
Sweater & Mini // Vero Moda
