Acid on the beach

jeans - thrifted and DIYed, tank - Forever 21, t-strap stilettos - syrup

Right now I am pretending nobody can see whats in the background, but If you have superpowers and see it anyway then let me just say that I had no choice, unlike some ultra cool bloggers I know, I do not own a blank white wall. I do however, have a door with a palm tree painted on it, but in my rush could not find a place to rest my camera on.

My fellow island girl Hot Robot called me a tease in my last post, so this is for her. Yesterday, injured and too tired to kite, I decided to stay home and indulge in my favorite past time - sewing. I am by no means an expert, but I sew by hand, and get a crazy kinda satisfaction in completing my little projects, products of my island fever. This pair of jeans I thrifted for $2, dumped 2 small bottles of thick bleach on, and then altered the fit, from slouchy men's jeans into skinny jeans. It has some crazy pockets, which my boyf remarked were "kinda cool", and a mini belt at the bottom of each leg. I wasn't sure If I was satisfied with how much I bleached, so I had to try them with a proper heel and a tank, and was quite happy with the end result. Must find more stuff to bleach!

With Lady Gaga on blast, I had so much fun trying stuff on with my heels that I even went for my beloved harem pants and paired them with a beanie and some pumps.. That I will post about tomorrow because I can barely keep my eyes open. Sorry for the blurry quality of the photos, the nicest ones turned out to be the ones my flash didn't wanna work on. Tsk tsk.

My goodness woman, you are a dab hand with the bleach! These pants are amazing! I can't believe you sew by hand, I can't make anything look that good even with a machine :-I.
