Denim in Distress

I have this chronic problem with jeans. It feels weird saying it publicly but here I go… I always get holes in the crotch of my jeans. Seriously, without fail, I will wear a pair of jeans for a year or two and then notice that a the seams and fabric are being eroded away. It also doesn’t matter what style/fabric blend/brand the jeans are, I’ve tried them all. I’m not exactly sure of the reason but my guess is that I’m rough on my clothing and my thighs rub together (awkward to say out loud). It is what it is though….

Over the past few months, I’ve developed a new plan to deal with this problem. I got tired of trying to patch the holes and being self-conscious. Therefore, I decided to embrace it and make even more holes in my jeans. The distressed denim look is very trendy right now. Also, restyling my jeans means I don’t have to spend money for a new pair. I have been getting quite a few compliments on my jeans and people wondering where I bought them. It’s definitely a ego boost when I say I did it myself.
