How To: Perfectly Distress a Pair of Jeans

10:41 AM

There's something about distressed denim that I'm in love with. Perhaps, it's the way each fray and rip wears in perfectly to the contours of my legs with each wear? The fact they already have that broken in feel and I don't have to do squats to make them stretch a bit? Ladies, I know you know what I'm talking about. Or they are just simply effortless and chic.

I stumbled across this amazing, detailed tutorial on the Free People blog, BLDG 25, showing you how to perfectly distress a pair of jeans. It really doesn't take any time at all to create a truly unique pair of jeans. Plus, you only need a few tools: a sharp razor blade (be careful!), card stock, scissors, sandpaper and a dremel, which is optional. (more…)

Note to Self: Put On Your Big Girl Panties.

12:07 PM

Dear ladies (and some European men):

Pay attention. Recall your routine as you prepare for a typical day. Your hair, face, outfit, shoes and accessories are all on point. There’s one thing you forgot. It may seem petty, and maybe you didn’t know or maybe you thought no one would notice, but guess what…we noticed. We, the world behind you, are staring…talking about “it.” “It” is the dreaded VPL: Visible Panty Line. (more…)

As it has been said from time and time again, “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she will conquer the world.” With these things in mind, here are five classic shoe styles that help every girl organize a fully functional shoedrobe.

Personalize Your iPhone Case…With Tape?

12:54 PM

My mom always jokes that I'm an 80-year-old woman (no disrespect!) stuck in a 22-year-old body and, to an extent, I don't disagree. I'm all about DIY projects and crafting unique, adorable items I find online through completely random blogs. I get bored pretty quickly after having the same nail color on for more than a week, keeping the same phone case on for months, etc. Example: I bought a new iPhone case three days ago and I'm already done with it.
