The heat of summer is setting in and I have been feeling the need to update my summer wardrobe with some new pieces. I've been loving the super tiny cut-off jean shorts that Nicole Richie has been wearing recently but after searching thrift stores only to find ill-fitting vintage denim, trying urban outfitters pre-made cut offs, and even considering a pair of $160 shorts from Citizens of Humanity, I finally found a perfect (and cheap!) solution. I bought a pair of distressed jeans that were a few sizes too big and cut them off little by little until they were just short enough. they still need to be worn in to get the fraying perfect but I am quite pleased with my creation nonetheless!
