DIY job number 1-Cut Offs - plus tagged!

Now summers here, I love wearing cut offs-at this length they are cool enough and comfy enough to wear in hot weather. My first pair that I did myself, my 7 for all mankind black jeans, are soo comfy that I really needed another pair on the go too.

7 for all mankind cut offs


So, last week I thought I would do the same to my Victoria Beckham rock & republic jeans, as I felt they were a little too short as jeans anyway, plus I wanted some blue cut offs.

This is the result-I'm really pleased as I have 2 pairs on the go now, plus a white pair which were already bought this length from Dorothy Perkins a couple of years ago.

I did some Levi's a couple of months ago, but on hindsight they were 'short' cut offs, meant for the beach, but really at that length I felt outside my comfort zone in them, so the charity shop and hopefully a new home has benefited from those ones!! I like the on the knee length as these can be worn anywhere, anytime.

I've been tagged by the gorgeous fashion chalet, to who I relay my sincerest apologies-I'm a complete technophobe, so was rather wary when I saw I had to do things with flickr (?) I'm definitely up for the tag but by question and answer format only-sorry for being such a donut!!

ellie said...

ummm...chicken curry.

Unfortunately, everytime I visit my grandparents in Texas..I throw up when I get there because my allergies really go crazy..I guess, nerves too, from the rocky roads.

Marte said...

Nice outfits! :)

Sharon Rose said...

Hi ellie-poor you-that sounds rough!!

Hi marte-thanks so much!!

WendyB said...

Tolerant is a nice thing to be.

yiqin; said...

You & The clothes horse are tempting me to cut off my jeans too! But I have been cutting so many of m clothes lately that I think if I touch my jeans, my mum will kill me! You look great though - as usual1

Make Do & Mend said...

Cut offs are so satisfying and yours are great!

Sharon Rose said...

Hi p-why not go for it-just choose a pair of jeans that you don't wear too much anymore!!

Hi asiancajuns-thanks so much!!

Hi wendy-thank you, I have to be living with 3 males-haha!!

Hi yiqin-thats lovely-thanks!! How about using a pair of jeans that you don't wear too much anymore?

Hi kate-thanks so much-this length is definitely in my comfort zone-no shorter for me, haha!!

emma said...

ah i this reminds me of a pair of cut offs i made like summers ago. i loved them. but then they disapired and i have a feeling my mom threw them out. ;( well you look great!

atelier said...

I ve done some DIY with an old pair of Levis, but the result was not as good as yours.

Sharon Rose said...

Hi emma-thanks a lot and thats too bad! Why not give it another try?

Sharon Rose said...

Hi atelier-maybe try them with a different top, they might look differently, or if possible make a touch shorter!!

fashion herald said...

that's the exact length I cut my jeans off to, also! and i like the new ones rolled up.

Susan said...

Thank you so much for the shopping advice!! I did some cut offs but I'm worried there a bit too short, got a bit carried away... Yours look cool

fashionpuppy said...

hey, nice cutted jeans ... but what the hell is a flickr?

Times of Glory said...

Dear, sorry about the belated reply. I've been struggling to keep up blogging... just so busy. I love both outfits. The first one is so glamorous and the second one (You've got your new t-shirt on!) is such an effortlessly chic look!

The tag sounds so fun! I've also got tagged by the same topic but didn't know how to do flickr, and you saved my life xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

angelgrotton said...

It was nice to found more about you. I love my family too and flavoured ice-cream as well )))

Cate said...

your cutoffs are really cool... the length is good too, i have some cutoffs which are too short for me too, maybe i should also give them to a charity shop... though charity shops are really picky here, they don't take everything.
haha, i don't even know what a flickr name is!
and about your "70s revisited" post: thanks for showing us the vest! i really like it, as i'm a music freak...

thetinylittlegirl said...

Sharon Rose said...

Hi angelgrotton-thanks so much, always so kind!!

Hi cate-thanks so much and I'm pleased I'm not the only one who doesn't know what flickr is!!
