"You Look Poor"

I found my old 'staple' pair of black skinny legged jeans when I was revising at home, and wore them for a while despite the fact that the reason they're my old pair is that they had big holes at the inside of the knees (I'm knocked kneed... How embarrassing, apparently it means I wiggle my bum a lot when I walk... hmm) due to wearing them so much. Anyway, I was online having a browse on TFS when I was reminded of the ripped jeans on the Christopher Kane and Martin Margiela S/S catwalks, and decided to let rip (ha what a pun) on my jeans.
I didn't want my jeans to be as ripped as the Martin Margiela offerrings, and they didn't end up with as "perfect" looking rips as either pair since I merely used a pair of hair scissors, but I'm quite happy with them! My boyfriend's mum said I "looked poor", but all in good jest, because I reckon she likes them really!

I wore them with my boyfriend at the weekend, and then to go to the cinema with my friend after our exam yesterday, where I accidently bought a large popcorn (ie the guy at the counter asked if I would like to upgrade to large and I said no... Next thing I know he's going 'great! Here's your large!' ?!?!?!). That happens to me a lot... I must talk in a foreign language or something!!

Me and the boy in the garden, playing (well him playing, me attempting) football!

  19. I actually really like the way your jeans turned out. It loks very much like you did it yourself ( in a good way, so they don't seem pretentious or that you're trying to be trendy, which I thought with intentionally ripped jeans was sorta impossible to do ( and I am basing this on my own unfortunate ripped jeans experiments).
