Distressed






Top: c/o Blue Labels Boutique, also love this
Jeans: Jolt (old), similar here
Shoes: Just Fab
Hat: Old Navy (sold out), also love this
Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs (old), similar here
Rings: H&M (the whole set is $3!), also love this
Bag: bought via thrift store, similar here



When I saw this Blue Labels Boutique top, I fell in love. I love the black and white abstract prints with black solid sleeves for contrast. My immediate reaction was to pair these with black skinny distressed jeans. I was going for an urban chic look. My eyes were drawn to the J Brand distressed jeans. It has the perfect amount of distressed and fits great! I just had to have it until I realized they were out of my budget for this month. Why can't I be miraculously rich when I find something great?! So I started crunching numbers trying to see if I can somehow make it work. Nope, no luck. I looked and looked, I mean I seriously looked to see if anything could compare. Then I saw these Jolt Jeans. They were my first pair of black denim. I bought them at Marshalls for $20ish dollars. Throughout the years, I started upgrading my black denim and they slowly started moving in the very back crevice of my closet. I've thought about donating them but never had the guts to do it. They just fit me so well! I kept telling myself they will be my emergency jeans. Well let me tell you, these emergency jeans came in handy! Since I was considering giving them away, I thought 'why not make my own distressed jeans?'. I watched several YouTube tutorials until I had the courage to slice them up. They're not perfectly distressed like J Brand, but they're somewhat comparable...right?! Well, just lie to me and say yes :)
