Sometimes, an accident is happy.  After multiple tests of some $12 Goodwill denim, I played my hand at a Shibori dyeing technique with some high-wasisted BDGs.  They didn’t turn out exactly as I was expecting, but after some wearing in, they’ve won me over.  A hip girl child inspired me to do some distressing at the knees and the bdg x xs lab rorschach skinny was born.

Moustache Man remarked that I’ve been feeling very denimmy lately.  I agree.  I just can’t get enough of denim and the endless DIY possibilities.  For a step by step Shibori guide check out honestly wtf.  For some ideas, help or inspiration check out denim refinery.  They’re both finds that were another one of those happy accidents.

    Rag & Bone and 7 wishes they could make jeans that look this good. They remind me of an ill-fated attempt of mine a few summers ago. Except mine were ugly and yours are fantastic.

    I’m SO going to try out the Shibori technique – even though skintight denim looks way better on you than on me.
