denim DIY

bleached denim-
the OG: balmain s/s 09...





so i really wanted to try this out, and there are a slew of tutorials online now (just google "how to bleach denim"). and maybe mine didn't turn out exactly the way i wanted them to BECAUSE i was too lazy to go through all the steps... i ended up just laying a pair of old jeans on the floor and randomly dripping clorox over them, and the blotches ended up way bigger than i want them to be:

and i couldn't get really white spots either, just light blue. i might try dripping some more bleach on top of the lighter places to see if they'll turn white... i think they're alright though.
if you like the look though, you should def. try it out yourself! or if you're afraid that you'll screw it up, you can buy them pretty much everywhere now, and they look a lot cooler than mine: (click for) urban outfitters for $70, target for $20. might just go buy some... ;D


also, on a semi-unrelated topic, like jane said, we're not going to be posting a whole lot this fall... but don't fret, go watch one of the 10000 awesome movies coming out this fall/winter!

like THE IMAGINARIUM OF DOCTOR PARNASSUS, with the gorgeousss lily cole, johnny depp, heath ledger, etc. trailer:


and i will definitely be seeing:
taking woodstock
cold souls
disctrict 9
9
where the wild things are
adam
the september issue
coco before chanel
youth in revolt
& more........so many movies so little time! oh wait.. this hiatus is for...college apps...aghhh!!!!!
ALSO EVERYONE GO SEE PAPER HEART IT IS THE CUTEST THING EVER!

I don't know if I can actually pull off the bleached denim look, but maybe i'll give it a try.

I really like how you did your jeans, though!
