I cut these pants of mine into shorts a while back, dyed them, and hand distressed them. I was hoping they'd come out more gold and brown, but they came out pretty yellow green instead. However, I still love them! The old pants had zipper details at the bottom, so I transferred those onto the shorts, which I love. However, I cannot close them really, and wearing them come summer should be an interesting problem (they're pretty racy without leggings). The studs I bought on Etsy and added here and there.

Carolyn M
Thanks! Well, I saw that people on Ebay/Etsy were charging like... $60-90 for shorts like these, and I was like, fuck that I'm doin' my own. Hahah.

Oh this picture is SO nice! What kind of wide ngle lens did you used to take it? I need to change mine... Thanks for the answere!
Carolyn M
Thank you! I actually used my telephoto - which is a pain, considering I have to stand practically a mile away from my tripod to get the shot, but it's the best lens to use when I'm at home and want that nice blur in the background. I have a Pentax K200 DSLR, and that lens is a 52 mm with a 50-200 zoom. :)

Thanks this will help me! I always try to do the bokeh effect but with a false lens it's difficult. By the way your picture is really really beautiful!
Carolyn M
You're welcome! It can be pretty difficult, it's hard enough for me without the telephoto, haha. You just have to play. Thank you <3

My ex had a pair of side zipper jeans. They were amazing. But these are extra special, the use of tights made it perfect. thank you.
Carolyn M
Thanks! Haha, they would be pretty scandalous if I didn't have leggings on.
Carlton W. Terry
Yes indeed! (i have seen that before, and disliked it)

Your welcome!
