Jeans are very versatile, you could wear them with almost anything. But sometimes I want to notch my look up a bit and plain jeans just won't do it for me. So here I have a pair of skinny jeans which were on sale (obviously not denim) which I won't have a problem cutting. There are so many methods you could do this but I wen't for the simplest one.
A pair of Jeans
Something to mark your jeans with
1. Wear your jeans and mark where you want your cuts to be. I marked mine on the middle slightly above the knee.
2. Slit it with your scissor and rip open the rest to get a raw messy look.
3. Use tweezers to pull out the vertical threads to open up and make the look even more distressed.
You can use sand paper to rub over the slits to make it look messier.
See it's very simple. The jeans I used were from cotton on and it is stretchy.
When you only see this crop top individually, you would pair it with things like jeans or a skirt which is what I did. But I'd like to try and take it a little out of the ordinary by matching it with a pair of crushed velvet purple platform booties and a holographic choker. More of something you would see as a dollskill.com outfit . If I only wore the skirt it will give a girly look but after adding the shoes, hat and choker, I somehow manage to make it look somewhat more grunge.
P.S. The crop top has a super cute open slit back.
So if you guys know possibly the current trend would be a super neat feed on instagram with a specific theme and super cool outfits such as ones from American Apparel with Nike shoes or adidas socks. Either way I had discovered a shop with a style that 'clicks' with mine. Loudncrayy, a Singapore based store, has an affordable collection of authentic goods. It's amazing that some of the things they sell, I already own.
American Apparel and Nike could cost more than the normal allowance I get but since Loudncrayy sells affordable high quality dupes and even original products, you won't have to worry!
To get a discount just use the code " JOYI10"on your checkout and you will get a discount on your purchase. (P.S. they deliver worldwide and code will expire soon!)
These few months had been fully packed with music festival all over the world. You can witness these on snapchat and every social media. Jakarta brings back We The Fest 2015 which I am glad I attended with my friends. The line up had a mix of everything I like from rock, indie to electro (not exactly edm). Last year the schedule was so not on time meanwhile this year I was so happy that they were so on time. Ismaya did a very good job with the time management. I luckily could watch almost all that I wanted. I tried George Calombaris, from Masterchef Australia, Greek restaurant and it tasted real good.
To buy food we had to buy tokens and I personally felt this wasn't a very good idea as it was bothersome and we had to line up to buy tokens just to buy water and they didn't let us bring water ourselves. Nevertheless, I got to join a free dream catcher making workshop for free to kill time as we entered early. There wasn't also as much photo areas as there were last year but I love the artworks around I hope they would've had more art murals around.
The first show I watched was Echosmith, followed by Wes Baker a very funny and super cool magician before Darius showed up and bring pumped up kicks to the stage. We ended the day by watching Sheppard one of my current favorite jam introduced by my friend.
Summer Vacation is coming to an end and my father had somethings to do in Bali. So throughout the last week of my summer holiday, I spent it in Bali for 4 days. If you've been up following my blog then you'll know I've been to bali so many times haha.
So I'm going to share you a short vlog and also tell you some new places I discovered, along with possibly some items I got on sale or thrifted.
Inaya Putri Bali
This was one of the hotel I stayed in. It's brand new because they renovated and change name from Inna Putri Bali to Inaya Putri Bali. The hotel itself was huge and was nicely designed.
Close to Seminyak Square
I know you can find starbucks anywher but I happen to swing by this one in particular and loved the interior design of the store. Either way if you need to charge your phone and chill out this would be the perfect spot.
