DIY Destroyed Denim Shorts

Etsy is basically an oasis of DIY studded, tie dyed, bleach stained, slashed denim shorts at the moment and I've been lusting over them for a while. I don't know why it took me so long to realize this, but I have shorts, bleach, sharp objects and a washing machine...I can make my own. I will reveal them in tomorrow's post, but, for now, you can marvel at some of the shorts that inspired my latest DIY project.

  4. Oh my, these shorts are the radness ! I wanted to do a little tutorial on bleaching+ripping the shiz out of some shorts, but I couldnt part with any of my pants, I just didnt have the heart to destroy any, ha :) Show your results afterwards love !
