After I’ve painted my little heart out

And cut my little heart out (man, that sounds way more violent than it should).

And then ironed my little heart out (again: ick).

I’ve got some swell little shorts.

Which are covered in authentic paint splotches (I did work in them to work them in).

Wore them with my new (to me) leather vest.

It’s a combination that’s rather b-b-b-bad to the bone, isn’t it?

    love the biker chic look – i think the hotness level can be ramped up further if you paired with your cut-out wedge boot/sandals?

    Wow, love what you did to these jeans! They fit so perfectly as well… so many cut-offs are either too tight or too loose. Great job!

    Okay, this is fabulous. I have a few pairs of baggy jeans that I plan on cutting and donning as cut-off shorts. You have only inspired me to complete the job immediately! :)

    They look wonderful. I’ve been meaning to hit the thrift store, get some old jeans and do the same.

    Great blog!!

    This could have been very cute if you weren’t so damn sexy! And then the leather vest!
