Barely there

IMG_1202

What is left from the 'balmainia'.. pimped old grey jeans.. just go bonkers with the bleach to get the look.. these were tucked far back in my jeans drawer.. but I pulled them back out and cut them open a few inched at the legs.. partially because it's +17 and sunny in london today..

Sorry I haven't been able to give you 100 % with the blog lately... scary, end of term uni deadline on monday...

Those self-designed jeans are totally rad, especially with the bleach and cutting workmanship you did to them.
Wishing you the best with the uni deadline!
