Pretty Ripped Thing.

blouse: Emporio Armani // skinny jeans: bdg (DIY ripped holes) // heels: Seychelles // bag: Alexander Wang // necklace: thrifted
photos by: asubtleapproach* 
A good pair of denim jeans go along way. On mine, I added the ripped holes so that they look
imperfect and super worn in. 
Try this on a pair you hardly wear to test it out first. To add holes to your jeans you simply:
– grab a pair of scissors, poke a hole through the section where you want the rip
– Just cut through, the bigger the whole, the cooler it looks
– Stretch out the rip a few times
– lastly, throw them into the washer/dryer so that all the threads come out, voila!
Also, the lovely Delmy from Fashion Bananas was very sweet to feature
 me on her blog! So flattering since I’m a big fan of hers!!  check out the
mini interview + her amazing blog/style!

    that shoes are amazing, I really like that style, and white looks so good on you. Also the outfit is so nice. I like to wear dark blue too, specially when it’s good weather.

    While you may be completely forthright with the information on your dating profile, others may not be.
    Any bit of news can be used for this type of article, but when you submit articles,
    they need to have a news slant. However, since some of these sites
    fetch information from your social networking sites, therefore it is imperative to
