Vanessa Hudgens was seen arriving for a flight at LAX airport yesterday in Los Angeles, California. I find Vanessa’s style to be one that changes daily, sometimes she will go for a boho vibe while others a more rough vibe.
This time she chose to wear a pair of Levi’s denim shorts with suede knee high boots, a white tee and an army green parka jacket. I think I would prefer this look without the black socks under the boots but it does add an edge to it. You can see my Levi’s that I customized into shorts here.
Cameron Diaz was spotted leaving her hotel in London. She paired together the new J Brand Adrienne jeans in White with her Levi’s denim jacket which she was spotted in not too long ago. These jeans seem like they are going to be more popular than the Agnes jeans. They seem to be getting spotted more frequently than those.
Cameron seems to be loving her pale denim lately. She was spotted wearing the Rag & Bone Salmon Leggings and then in a pair of white Vince jeans. Are any of you readers sporting the paler shades this summer too? You can click here to purchase her jeans here for $228 and here to purchase Levi’s denim jackets.
Cameron Diaz looked casual in a Levi’s Denim jacket, a tee shirt and sweats on the set of her newest film, Gambit. The film is based off of the 1966 film of the same name. It tracks a British thief, who plans to steal a priceless artifact from one of the world’s richest men. The film stars Cameron, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman and Tim Courtenay.
Cameron is also in talks to play a weight-loss instructor in the upcoming romantic comedy, What to Expect When You’re Expecting. Sounds like she’s going to be busy the next couple of months!
I thought I would do something a little different in what I share with you and customize a pair of Levi’s. I often customize my denim by ripping, shredding, patching, hemming, studding, paint splattering etc because I love to make jeans more my own.
This time I took a pair of higher rise Levi’s jeggings that I had and chopped the legs off to make them into shorts. It’s best to cut one leg first after measuring where you want them and then fold them in half and cut the other leg against the already chopped one to make sure they are the same. Since these were completely plain (see the first gallery image) I decided to make them a little more edgy and distress them. I took a small holed cheese grater and something hard to put inside the leg and then grated the denim really hard where I wanted the distressing. It does take a while to get the destruction as you want it. I also made abrasions on the zipper area, the pockets, the back pockets and around the waist band.
After I had finished doing all of that I soaked them in water to get all of the dust and fabric bits off and then I left them in the sun to dry for a while to fade the denim a bit. I then chucked them in the tumble dryer to roughen them up a little bit more. Finally I frayed the edges of the new hem with scissors. It’s really easy and simple to make your own shorts this way, it just takes a lot of patience to get the end result. I do prefer to customize and make my own denim shorts to actually buying new ones. How many of you do the same thing?
