D.I.Y. Boyfriend Jeans

This is what I wore to dinner this evening. These are my "boyfriend jeans". When the whole boyfriend jeans trend came out, I didn't really know where I could find them in my town. So I had the brilliant idea to literally buy mens' jeans. I went to my favorite thrift store and tried on several pairs of jeans, and I found these Lucky Brand jeans- quite lucky indeed (no pun intended). I also slightly distressed them using sandpaper and a cheese grater. I thought that they would look better if they were a little bit "old" looking. I also put elastic bands at the hem to make them fitted at the bottom and kind of "scrunchy" looking. I haven't worn them in a long time, and I had forgotten how much I love them!
