RAW HEM

Monday, November 10, 2014

This outfit has a few of my most favorite things...

Denim, leopard, and black & white. But the best thing is the raw hem on my skinnies! See that's what happens when you start to clean your closet,  get distracted by pinterest and decide that you don't love the jeans so why not do a little DIY. I'm excited to see how they fray post wash. Have you done any recent DIYs you're loving?

Jacket: BB Dakota 'Lahan' // 
Top: H&M // 
Denim: Hudson DIY hem // 
Pumps: Nine West (old, similar)  // 
Bag: Coccinelle (old, obsessed with this) // 
Necklace: Gorjana 'Alphabet' & Long chain was a gift (similar) //

  1. I've never thought to shorten some of my existing jeans like that. Great tip!

    1. I hadn't either Ashley but I figure I was going to throw them out anyways so a little snip snip to see. I like the way they came out!

  2. That jacket! That necklace! Those shoes! You look amazing Donna. I rarely try DIY projects with my clothes, but this seems so easy and a chic update to something I am not wearing as often. Will Pin for inspiration later. ;)

    1. Thanks Brandy! I'm with you, I don't like the risk of DIY for clothes but I was already going to toss them so if they worked I saved myself some cash. Give it a try!

  4. I think about doing this all the time...but I am worried that my subpar DIY skills will lead to uneven denim!

    1. I think the uneven part is what makes it awesome and idiot proof. Gives it a little edge. Dooo it!!
