Underground Creepers - TK Maxx
Jeans - Boohoo (Old & DIYed)
Shirt - Vintage

Take two... I already wrote out this post once, was well pleased with it, then of course Blogger decided to get rid of it all.

These jeans have literally been DIYed to death. It all started back when ripped knees took over England last year, and decided to give these a little rework and cut some holes in. Back then, they were still blue acid wash, and I'm not going to lie, I was kinda over blue acid wash by that point. Even though I loved them with the rips, I still never wore them that much.

A few months ago, I then spotted a photo on Pinterest (oh, Pinterest) of some distressed ankle grazers, and needed them there and then. I volunteered these jeans to once again go under chop, and off the bottoms of them came. After a few washes they got really frayed, and I love how they look now. I think if you're ripping your own jeans, you've got to give them a few washes to start fraying properly, otherwise it just looks like a clean cut through the material.

But alas, they were still blue acid wash, so last week I got the washing machine dye out. They look sooo much better now, and I like that the dye didn't completely black out the acid wash. I also love how the ankles look with Creepers!

  3. Love this outfit, I never really thought about dying my old acid wash jeans but that's such a great idea because then I'd be able to wear them again!

    1. You could get an all black pair to start with, then they would basically go with (and look good with) anything! x

    1. So many of my clothes got ruined by damp in 2nd year, student houses are literally the worst! Have a look in TK Maxx, they seem to be getting a lot of the older Underground ones in lately!
