JEANS C/O FOREVER 21 (here)

BOOTS / PUBLIC DESIRE

If anybody as short as me has noticed, jeans can be very scary. They scrunch, they’re always sold out, and online shopping can be a nightmare. If a model is 5’9, and the jeans fit her perfectly at her ankle, just exit your browser. But what happens when a petite girl gets angry/creative? A DIY, that’s what. In this collaboration with Forever 21, I strategically picked out flare jeans with the sole intention of hacking off a chunk of the hem. Cropped flares look effortless on tall women, and I wanted a pair (that didn’t cost me an arm or leg, too). Why pay $60.00 for jeans that you can cut at home? This pair from Forever 21 are already distressed and have an interesting wash, so all that was missing was turning them into a pair that suit ME. Here’s how:

  1. Put your flares on and fold them as much as your heart desires. (Cropped flares are about 2 inches above the ankle)
  2. Secure them with pins and carefully take them off.
  3. Lay them flat on the floor and with measuring tape, measure the length you have folded.
  4. Remove the pins, measure the length you got in step 3 starting from the hem up, and draw a line with a white crayola where the measurement ends.
  5. Cut across, and distress with sandpaper or the blade of your scissors (or throw them in the wash and dryer, they all work).
  6. Wear them and rejoice in the fact that you saved about $3o.

And here I go again with another bodysuit, because I can’t seem to get over how convenient they are. This new piece is different from the rest of my collection, simply because it’s grey and it has some interesting details. It’s the small details that catch my eye, and this bodysuit has numerous of them: it’s backless,  has a plunging neckline, and has shoulder ties. In my opinion, every girl needs a bodysuit or two, and if you don’t own any now would be a good time to start trying them out. As you’ve seen in previous posts, my go-to handbags are from Diophy and this one is no different. The tassels on this bag are so thick that it gives character to an entire outfit (thank god because although I love all black, I bore myself sometimes). I don’t own anything like this, so I’m definitely excited to wear it out this summer. Speaking of summer, I’m petrified of the heatwaves that will be hitting Texas this year. How we survive 102 degrees is beyond me. Is that even habitable?
