MichelleYue 's Thoughts:

After seeing too many slashed jeans gone wrong, I decided sacrificing one of my jeans would be too much and opted for the best DIY thing in the world – stockings.

I laid the stockings down flat and cut one inch strips across the top, all while watching Lars and the Real Girl in the dark with my roommate. Hence the reason some of the strips are weird looking. :)

I’m not really sure how this hair flippy photograph came about either… strange.

I love how the tights give the illusion that your shoe straps go all the way up.

MichelleYue
MichelleYue on November 20
aww well I didn't exactly cut them randomly, they were horizontal cuts that were about 1 inch apart from each other all the way down.

oh man these are so good! i got some that are very very similar at a halloween store, they're by leg avenue. i think the slashed part is supposed to be worn in the back as the pic shows. it has to be worn with a long top though :O

HOLY SHIT. I don't have words to describe the sheer awesome of those leggings. I agree that there are too many ways to ruin a perfectly good pair of jeans. Looking amazing, as usual. I feel the compulsive need to go out and buy black clothing :(
