an inspiration.

there is this pair of shorts from urban outfitters that i have just been obsesssssing over.
it has that 80s high rise, distressed look to them, of which i am in love with!
since i was feeling a little adventurous today, i took a pair of my moms vintage levi's and cut them into shorts.
here's the result:

like them? i think they're pretty cute, hehe. but, i still need to make them look more destroyed. i've tried a cheese grater and a knife...any other tips?
anyways, i wore this outfit to the movies, race to witch mountain, which wasn't so bad as i thought it would be, and then to this awesome dive called "sully's" where i had dinner. it has that bar vibe, because well, it is a bar, yet it serves escargot and mahi mahi! i had the former with some stuffed mushrooms! yum!
details on the outfit:
shirt: ralph lauren
cardigan: boutique in miami beach
shorts: vintage levi's
belt: american eagle
shoes: bcbg
necklace: grand canyon
purse: vintage dooney and burke
