There’s nothing new about distressed jeans. The look has been around since before most of us were even born. The ripped look is some what…classic. But recently they’ve become more and more popular. Assorted looks of all kinds..pants, shorts and even cropped jeans are being ripped from here to there.
Beyonce’ in a fab pair of distressed jeans..
Kim K in her rips and tears…
Give it a try, bleach them…cut them…rip them! Make them your own. The best part about making these jeans are that they’re a definite one of a kind piece. You won’t see anyone else wearing something that YOU made! I’ve been known to spend a pretty penny on a pair of distressed jeans but I also take time out and make my own! And you should too
Here’s what you’ll need:
Sand paper/ Nail file
Hard object…book/small box
Washer & Dryer
I’ve uploaded 2 different videos showing how to achieve this look…
I’d love to see the different looks you come up with! Feel free to Confess Your Glam and send pics after you give it a try… firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last week I took a trip to the Big Apple and smack dead in the middle of Times Square, I saw heaven. Well… fashion heaven. There in big bright lights read…FOREVER 21. Thee biggest I’ve ever seen thus far!! As I dashed across the street to make my entrance, I was stopped dead in my tracks *gasps* It was not yet open…the countdown read “3 days…45 minutes…17 seconds.” My dreams were crushed
So until my next trip to NYC…I will just live through these pics from the Grand Opening that took place on June 25th…
Yesterday, Alicia Keys performed on ABC’s Good Morning America sporting one of the most beautiful looks ever…a baby bump!! Looking great in one of the most popular trends this season; a belted romper… she finished it off with a pair of red bottoms and gold studded bangles.
I’m excited to see what looks are ahead for this fab mommy…even with a big belly we’re still Glam-Aholics
This dress is a definite must have! A simple LBD…with a twist. The “caged’ shoulder look adds something more to this modest, yet edgy dress. Rock’d by Rhianna and Toya Carter…this dress has a place in YOUR closet. And the low price makes it even more attractive
For all of my Glam-Aholics in the Metro Detroit area, this event is especially for you!! You are cordially invited to come out and treat yourself like the Glam Goddess that you are! We all need to pamper ourselves from time to time and this is the perfect event for us to have girl talk…while treating ourselves to a little R&R (rest & relaxation)
Like wine, I believe that Jada Pinkett Smith is getting better with time. A few years back she may not have been looked at as a style icon, but lately I’m sure many may have had a change of heart. Her petite frame is slowly but surely turning heads on every red carpet event that she attends. I kinda look at her as a silent assassin. She doesn’t say too much, she lets her flair do the talking and then POW…she styles on you in the blink of an eye lol!
This week she has been everywhere; her son’s movie premiere for The Karate Kid, The David Letterman Show and The Tony Awards….quietly shutting them down with her style and grace.
Jada’s tan is crazy…she’s looks like a little golden goddess
Jennifer Lopez are one of my chosen golden girls….love her. This dress is hugging and her curves are intense *2 thumbs up*… Who doesn’t love a curvy girl? She reminds me a lot of Beyonce’ in this pic, which I think is a compliment to them both!
The beautiful and talented songstress Monica performed The National Anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals. As she always does, she killed the song but not before leaving me with chills. Monica doesn’t sing…she SANG honey!!
I’m quite sure after she was done with the anthem everyone had their minds on the game…My thoughts were on her footwork…
Who’s playing again?! Go Pistons!! Oh…not the Pistons? *kanye shrug*
Rihanna covers the July 2010 issue of Elle, looking absolutely beautiful. The sultry dark spread exudes nothing but her; sexy…edgy..and of course stylish. Animal prints and lingerie, sounds like her everyday wardrobe to me! She opens up about her new love, what fashion means to her and also life after Chris Brown…
When asked about her new beau:
“I have a boyfriend. I’m so happy. I feel really comfortable, and it’s so easy. I have such a chaotic life, but at the end of the day, that is just my peace. It keeps me sane, really, talking to him and talking to my family.”
When asked about her favorite designers:
“It’s clear there are definitely fewer black women in the high-fashion industry. One of the things I respected most about Gucci was that they did a print campaign with me. I’m a black girl on a fashion spread for Gucci—that was a big deal. I respect designers who aren’t afraid to go outside the box. I went to a Jean Paul Gaultier show, and I saw girls who are thicker than me, beautiful and voluptuous and different ethnicities. That made me so excited. I thought, Okay, I can work that, for sure.”
Getting over Chris Brown:
“A year ago, I was very confused. Because he was my best friend. All of a sudden, one night changed our whole lives—not only our friendship, but our lives. I wanted to wake up one day and just not have that pain anymore. I wanted to be with him again or get over him—it was either-or. I just didn’t want to feel the pain, the confusion.”
