work in progress





These bad boy jeans were courtesy of PacSun, one of our generous sponsors for the Weardrobe Conference. The jeans, the specimens for our DIY workshop full of studs and shredding galore, served as a blank canvas of sorts and after a mad dash of all 20 girls rushing toward the jean table, these white ones were left.

I shrugged my shoulders and said, "Labor Day, Schmabor Day."

I'm going to break the rule and live to tell about it.

Technically though, these jeans are a work in progress. I finished the back pockets with some studding detail and wanted to add a little somethin' somethin' to the front. I started doing this pant cuff pattern but sadly, my thumbs wore out on me.

Studding is a lot of work, ya know?

What do you guys think? More studs or should I save my thumbs?

  7. those are absolutely beautiful jeans. funny thing is, after hearing about this whole Pacsun jean re-working workshop, I thought to myself, 'Wouldn't some studs on the back pockets look amazing?'

  9. Leave them as is i say! and if you're not so keen on the white you could always dye them? Just don't go leaning up against cars with those studs, Missy! Trust me, i speak from experience...

  13. I think that the jeans look great the way that they are, or you could add studs to the front pocket on the opposite side from where they are at the cuff, just a suggestion. But they look amazing.

  18. You look great! I love the strips and the layered chains. I'm with you on the whole "white after labor day" thing. Breaking fashion rules is much more fun than obeying them! I say maybe a few more studs on the front pocket opposite the ones on the leg. Great job reworking the jeans!

  21. I love the pants and I think that the no white after labor day is soooo played. But I don't think that you should overdo it with the studs. I think that you should finish the other leg cuff and leave it at that. Buuut the moral of this comment is that your outfit is very cute as all of your outfits are. ; )
