OOTD - DIY Destroyed Black Denim


Happy Monday Noobs!  I hope you had a great weekend.  My weekend was a busy one with work, but I was able to slow down a little bit and relax on Sunday.  I've been eyeing the very-popular destroyed black skinny jeans, and have been searching for a pair of my own.  Unfortunately, I'm not prepared to shell out the $200+ required to bring a pair of these bad boys home.  So what's a Noob to do?  DIY of course!  I used the same methods in my DIY destroyed denim shorts tutorial, and went to town on a pair of old black skinny jeans that were just collecting dust in my closet. The results definitely satisfy my need for a pair of ripped black jeans, and are perfect for a lazy Sunday of doing errands and eating Pho. Read on to see how the jeans turned out, and for all outfit details.




Black Jeans - DIY, T-shirt - Club Monaco, Jacket - Danier Leather
Plaid Blanket Scarf - Zara, Clutch - Clare Vivier (sold out - VERY similar)


I must sound like a broken record, but I absolutely love this plaid blanket scarf from Zara, and have barely taken it off all month!  The material is so incredible soft and warm, and the bright plaid adds a fun element to even the most casual outfits.  I love this blanket scarf so much, that I already have my order placed at Zara for the other colour!


What do you think of the DIY destroyed black denim?

    1. Canadian Hibernation all the way! I can't believe the price of the destroyed black denim! I almost bought a pair in a weak moment, but am so glad that I decided to DIY instead (and so is my credit card.)
