A Denim Hack

You’re looking at a denim dress that was originally ankle length when I found it!  I cut it two weeks later.

Dress: Vintage and DIY hacked to the knees.  Try a Topshop version. Sandals: Mango.  Bag: Gucci. Try Calvin Klein (on sale), Gigi NewYork (on sale) or Boticca. Shades: Ray-Ban Clubmaster

  I was asked a couple of times on Instagram about how I’m keeping these sandals laced up so that they don’t fall.

To be honest, mine have fallen before but when I tie it tightly just under the knees they usually stay.

    Love the dress – great idea to check out vintage as every denim dress I’ve tried on this Summer have been total bum skimmers. I’m 5ft 5 and went for ‘Tall’ in Asos and it was still really short 🙁

    I love to wear cut off denim shorts so I don’t know why I never thought to cut off a denim dress. That’s ingenious! It’ll look totally bad ass after a couple of washings when the edge gets all frayed and stringy. Love it!
