Ecstatic to unveil the latest from my DIY denim jacket project!! I know it’s winter, but it was pretty warm this week, and I wore this jacket without much layering. This ensemble would work well for you West Coasters out there.
Hmmm…Déjà Vu, you might be thinking…Yes, I did post a denim DIY a few months ago, but this jacket has had an upgrade. 🙂 New pins, another fruit patch, and a new jagged cut. I’ll give you a moment to stare at these crazy pins!! The pins on the jacket right now are from Yesterdays Co pins, Chris Uphues, Valley Cruise Press, and the minty project. I will link them down below. And yes, if you were wondering, I do have a few Marvis toothpaste pins on there, courtesy of the minty project.
I trimmed off the bottom of the jacket to give it a more cropped and distressed look. The bottom part that I cut off had buttons going across, so I turned it into a choker (see above pic). Reduce, reuse, recycle, as they say… It was very easy!! No need to go and buy a denim choker when you can make one right at home – I like how uneven and frayed it looks.
I went with black jeans that have an unusual lace-up instead of a zipper in front. And the bejeweled sneakers? So shimmery and festive.
