DIY Step Hem Jeans (See Jane Wear + DIY)

old J Brand DIY jeans (inspired by this pair and this pair, shop more step hem jeans HERE), Cinq a Sept blouse (look for less HERE and shop more cinq a sept HERE), IRO coat (shop more camel coats HERE), Valentino shoes (shop more ankle strap shoes HERE), Chanel bag (shop vintage Chanel HERE)
I may not be the craftiest person, but I'd consider myself resourceful.  I did some DIY crafts for my wedding (this was really pre-Pinterest, too, mind you) and always feel a small sense of accomplishment when I'm able to pull off a project that I would otherwise outsource.

When I found these jeans hidden in the depths of my closet, I honestly wondered 1.) how they survived several moves and 2.) if they were some sort of magical sisterhood pair of pants that I kept throwing out but it would magically reappear.  Alas, they don't seem to possess superpowers (I haven't turned into Blake Lively or Rory Gilmore yet..) but I was able to give them a second life.  I tested out the ol' step hem trend and a pair of pants that was one leg out the door (heh) was the perfect guinea pig.  I actually think they turned out pretty well and I was able to test out a trend, to boot.  So tell me, do you ever take matters into your own hands and DIY?

  9. If we go down then we go down together, they'll say you could do anything, they'll say that I was clever.
