DIY Frayed Jeans and #HolyCityChicks

Happy Friday yall!
So a few weeks ago, Gus and I finally participated in our very first photo shoot with dazzling and patient
๐Ÿ“ธJennifer Collins Photography ๐Ÿ“ธ!!

We teamed up with the Holy City Chicks bloggers here in Charleston to raise money for Pet Helpers, which was completely organized & styled by the amazing Liz of the

๐Ÿ‘‰ Charleston Weekender Blog๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Me and Sarah of My Coastal Chaos

Each lady sported a snazzy top from Bonfire tees, which are only  $19.99!!!
And Pet Helpers SC will see 100% of the profits, so make sure you head over to
 and check out the cool options including, tanks, vnecks, and the awesome baseball tee I'm rocking ๐Ÿ˜‰
Our furbabies were each sporting these cute collar leashes from ๐ŸŽ€CrewLala๐ŸŽ€Right when I saw the  red and black plaid, I had to pounce!! Flannel/plaid is my jam and as you can see, Gus loved it too!!
Crew Lala Red and Black Buffalo Plaid Bow Tie Collar $46

To jazz up the baseball tee I opted for a gold statement necklace from Express and I had my heart set on these snazzy frayed jeans from Forever21 but lo and behold. . .. 
They were sold out.
๐Ÿ˜ฃForever 21 SOLD OUT๐Ÿ˜ฃ
I guess nothing is forever. . .ha

✂✂And you guessed it, I decided to make my own!✂✂
๐Ÿ‘–I grabbed an old pair of skinny jeans๐Ÿ‘– from my closet. . .and when I mean old yall, i mean OLD, like the seams were busted and the only thing to hold it together was duct tape kind of old lol.
Now don’t judge, I had never done this project before and I wasn’t about to cut up a pair of my new ones anytime soon.
1.        I cut off about 2 inches from the bottom leg of the jeans so that I made them into capris.
2.        You’re gonna want to split the seams from the sides of the jeans.
3.        Start cutting strips. 
4.        Once you’re finished cutting, rather than spend a lot of time trying to distress them yourself. Just pop them in the washing machine and then the dryer and they will be PERFECT!
