Sometimes silence is golden.
I’ve come to love distressed jeans, so much so that I’ve made it a slight obsession searching for the perfect distressed jeans. After a bit of
lazy searching, I decided to make DIY distressed ones. I’ve done them before on the blog, see here, and I’m now wondering if I should share how I distress jeans. I’m not a very DIY person, but when it comes to being crafty with clothes and upcycling them to make them look new, count me in!
I’m all for looking good and feeling amazing on a budget, so when I upcycle my clothes and get compliments on them, it’s just the confidence boost I need to keep me motivated to maintain my proverbial crafty thumb. I especially found it quite relaxing making these jeans, which is a plus because I’ve been having hectic work days lately.
Now, I’m not sure if there are any existing fashion rules that exempt plus-size women from wearing distressed jeans that may show their thighs, but I’m all here for that. Nothing pleases me more than seeing women comfortable in their own skin. It is such a great action of self-love and body positivity. I’d love for women to be comfortable in their own skin. How boring the world would be if we all looked the same, right? Everyone having perfect hair, flawless skin and proportional body size, as opposed to celebrating the stories behind each stretch mark, each blemish, and the cellulite that is part of life. This is something I consciously work at everyday, and trust me, it helps.
I do hope you’re all well, I know the silence on the blog here has been quite loud, but I won’t get into it. I’m striving for consistency and constant self-improvement. Baby steps.
