Denim shorts to be precise ...and lots of them. I have become mildly obsessed with the humble vintage Levi 501’s and I cant imagine my wardrobe without them. Dressed up for a night out, dressed down for a mooch around the shops the simple denim short adds so much to my wardrobe.
This pair are just your bog standard 501 shorts, they’re from the Rokit store in Brick Lane and think they cost me around 20 quid.
The next two pairs are by a brand called Blue Rinse, who are based in Leeds and have shops in Leeds and Manchester and concessions in the Miss Selfridge stores there as well. I thought I’d let my *ahem* DIY skills loose on them and stud them. The first pair I used rounded studs and the second I used pyramid studs and I absolutely love them!
Next up is this beaut lilac acid wash pair from Urban Outfitters, I spent far far too much money on them but you get student discount and obviously that’s my way with justifying spending shit loads of money in there!
This pair are from Topshop and after considering whether I could recreate them myself I realised studding is one thing, learning to crochet is a whole new level and my DIY skills simply aren’t up to scratch.
Next up are another Urban Outfitters pair but these are Bitching and Junkfood and were in the sale. The studs are slightly lethal but these cuties are perfect in winter with black tights and boots to toughen up a floral blouse and hey presto a perfect winter outfit.
So there we have it, the humble denim short... a true wardrobe staple.
These beauts are in the process of being made eeee (well I’m going to attempt to make)...
I have wanted them for so.long but simply cannot justify spending £65(!!!!!) on them. So am going to have to make do with 1m of pleather, scissors and my extremely questionable sewing skills. Me, obsessed?! Never.
