First of all, let me go on the record and say that I love these pants. I got them secondhand at a friend's clothing swap, but decided to DIY them into this fabulously ripped-up version. So far, my interactions about these jeans go something like this:
Me: "I love these jeans."
Other person: "Ummm. Okay."
or the total dad joke,
"looks like we need to give you some money to buy new pants!"
Always just so hilarious, no matter how many times I hear it.
Either way, I think the texture is amazing and they add some rock & roll to this outfit, which I love.
I am a full believer in wearing one item every day that makes you feel like a badass.
After I finished swooning over my jeans, I paired it with a simple white v-neck (a Sirens $5 clearance rack win), this oversized cardigan (also a $0 score from a recent clothing swap) and these metallic pointy-toed wedges ($5 from Value Village, and probably the best thrift score of all time). Now that I'm writing this out, I'm realizing that this entire outfit cost me about $10. The most expensive thing on me is the Kat Von D liquid lipstick, and it wasn't even mine. In your face, budget bloggers! Who says you can't do fabulous for cheap?
