Jorts?

1:01 AM


Jeans - Miss Sixty [London, 06]

Double Layered Top - Uni Style [Delhi, 06']; Necklace - Gift [Mom, 10']
Shoes - Nine West [08']; Sunnies - Ray Bans [Stolen from Brother]
I had removed and put these jeans in the 'spring-cleaning-pile'. I was really done with them. That's when I saw several bloggers [I apologize I forgot to save the links but I will surely try and reference the bloggers as soon as I find their posts!] who had cut their jeans and converted them into shorts. Hence, 'Jorts'! ... I remember shredding all my old jeans into shorts back in high school days. However, I had absolutely forgotten about this fantastic phenomena which helps you get more life out of your denims before you truly wave good bye to them! 

So what do you think? Do they work? Or should I just stick with my 'real' shorts?

  7. Haha, you have told me many times that you enjoy my earrings! Thanks! And my name is Charlotte :)

    I think your jorts look great! I have a pair of pants that I've been meaning to do this too for a while. It will probably be one of the first projects I get around to after I finish the tie-dyed suit I'm working on!

I read all your posts in one single day and bacame a hugeeee fan of you and your beliefs. I am now76 kilos at 5'4. I need another 20 go, but am sticking to it.

    Love your stlye and your simplicity. I now log in to ur blog first thing every morning. I cannot tell you how much I have been impacted (is that a word?. I tried looking up your email add for contacting you but didnt find any..can you please send it to me on harshika.johnson@gmail.com, I need to write in to you to tell you a lot more...
