eDiot, they look really good! I had no idea Balmain had jeans like this..

I bleached some a while back but I just poured it on and they're my painting jeans..

OK here's my next project.. I've always wanted some over-the-knee suede boots, like the ones worn by Sienna Miller:


sienna-online

I have some wedge boots that I'd like to customize into this style.. I'm not really sure of fabrics to add stiffness and suede appearance, but I'm going to try! Oh and I'm aware they aren't as flat and pirate-like, but that style doesn't look good on my body type..

RE: bleached trousers
i bleached trousers once
black ones, and the bleached areas turned orange
they were all solid orange too, not different degrees..like light orange, stronger orange like in the Balmain jeans (some spots of light blue, darker blue etc)

are you guys mixing water with your bleach?
i did it 100%

mine was with 100%, but then again it came out very uneven.. I intended light blue but got that weird cream color. I'd like to try to get the more light blue tone with some.

the black dye that was used on the jeans probably was mixed with warm colors rather than cool colors. i suggest using a color remover than bleach instead.

I definitely need to get some bleach...I love what everyone's done.

My latest DIY project. I wanted one of Prada's Christmas necklaces...instead I made a hybrid with some tweed, silk ties from an old hat, and a costume jewelry brooch.

They released a line of jewelery that would hit the stores now, just in time for Christmas...not sure what the official name is.

Here's some info from Nylon.
