if you follow us at all, you know I’m totally obsessed with cutting my jeans. It’s one of the many perks of thrifting! I’m much more adventurous on my “alterations” when I’ve spent less than $20 on a pair of jeans. Usually less than $15! I went through a distressing my own jeans phase.
Now, I’m all about chopping off the bottom of all my jeans. You see the raw hem trend EVERYWHERE, which is TOTALLY helpful when you have a short inseam! And also….striped button down tops! I had to have an extension to my striped tee obsession haha.But back to the cutting of the jeans…
It’s to the point that it’s getting a little out of control-ha! Yet…not?
It’s like I’m giving new life to jeans I was NEVER wearing! AND…now I LOVE them.
So, is that wrong? I think not.
I had to admit to myself. Long jeans with heels are not happening anymore. SO, all my beloved “date night” long jeans….chop chop!
And I’m now I want to wear them all the time!
And they will just get better with every wash… And I’m late in posting this. Like…really late.
BUT, I’ve said it before. One of my favorite things to thrift is vintage wool coats. You can find AMAZING coats with details you can’t even imagine for less than $30! This one was $16, and I have to be honest…I was cranky about that hahaha.
YET…if you were to buy a true camel hair coat of this quality in the stores, you’d be paying $200 minimum, and upwards of $500!) . SO, again, go thrifting! Even if you are in a small town! Go to vintage/antique stores or malls! I’ve found some GEMS visiting random little towns.
