I often speak of fashion fixations on Kremb de la Kremb. They are a very real thing for me. I will see something (like star patched jeans) and think about it for a long time. I don’t mean for it to happen, and I don’t mean to be obsessive compulsive; it’s just a trait of mine. I’ll ponder and store away a sartorial thought until it comes to fruition–then the fashion fixations is fixed! I could have just bought the star patched jeans online for $115–that’s actually not too bad of a price. But….I knew I could just make them myself–especially with my local tailor Yee. So, I got to figuring out the DIY for these start patched jeans. It was not difficult at all. And now, I have revitalized a pair of very old jeans (that have almost been given away a couple times)!
How To Create Star Patched Jeans:
The fashion fixation happened when I saw these star patched jeans seen on Eva Chen back in March at the Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2016-2017 have haunted me. First, I figured out who made them to see if I could buy the original. They’re made by Paige in their very famous Jimmy cut. The price isn’t too bad, but…these old boyfriend jeans of mine needed some new life! They were the perfect candidate for the star patched jeans.
Here’s what I did in working with my tailor:
How about you? Do you get fashion fixations like me? Do you just buy what you the item on or do you try to DIY (do it yourself)?
