doin' it yo self

On the few days I have between the end of finals and the beginning of class I can just let loose and do whatever. Go to fashion shows(hah), veg out, and DIY...!

I love going through my closet and digging out stuff I don't wear anymore (or haven't worn at all), only to update it and make it wearable somehow. Some pieces are just too horrible to rescue, but some come out pretty damn cool and are inserted into my regular wardrobe again. Yay!

Case in point, a pair of skinny H&M black satin pants. Not exactly ugly or unwearable, but they were were pretty much taking up space on a hanger. I was feeling pretty inspired after the Rad Hourani ss09 show in NY and decided to give the pants a little makeover.

wow, what you did with those trousers looks amazing! did you just cut it and leave the raw edge or did you have to do a crazy amount of hemming?! i hope not!

I didn't hem them as I would've probably gone INSANE... haha... I did however apply some clear nail polish, which kinda took forever but I'm guessing still less than hemming each strip..!! thanks for your compliments guys, I can't wait to wear these...
