i've been thinking about those margiela jeans every since that jak+jil photo surfaced. i didn't want to make them as extreme as the photo- it looks like they're shredded on front and back. i just shredded mine on the front. i'm pretty happy with how they turned out, despite getting my nostrils full of black fluff from sanding them with sandpaper.
i'm wearing them with leggings underneath.
also, i guess this is the debut of my studded louboutins. i bought them in the summer at a really good price on ebay and i've been saving them to wear in the fall. i'm going to wear them tonight to dinner. they make me smile.
