I was cleaning out my closet (which is so hard to do! I don't want to get rid of anything) and I came across a great pair of black jeans. I own way too many black pair of jeans, but this pair fits so nice! I can't get rid of them. So I thought why not just enhance them.

For this DIY all you need is a pair of jeans (any color/any style) painter's blue tape, and fabric paint (any color)

1. Lay the pants down and make blocks with the painter's taping, wrapping it around the front and back.

2. Then paint. Wait for it to dry paint the back. Then repeat for second and third layer of paint.

3. Now using the painter's tape again to make a smaller block or tinier striper. You don't need to do this, you can come up with your design!

4. And of course; wear it & share it.

These jeans go perfectly with my new Phillip Lim for Target tank top.

Now in all honesty; I was kind of disappointed by the collection up close and personal. It wasn't the best quality, I was low key bummed. I did pick of 3 items I did like which was pictured below. The pursers were the best thing about the collection and they were of course too much for my budget but more importantly sold out.
