Pop of Color & Ripped Jeans

Thanks to my pals, I had a  fabulous birthday and 4h of July weekend. Since we all tried to look casual and stylish, I opted for a simple outfit while using a colorful bag to add a pop of interest.  A little while ago a gal pal actually paid good money for a pair of ripped jeans. Although it was interesting, I couldn't see myself paying good money for something that is already ripped. Instead, I got a pair of old jeans that was slightly ripped and went to town with it. (Picture is taken before the New Do.)
Of course, I never leave home without a piece of my own jewelry. This clover necklace with large freshwater pearl is one of my favorites. So let me ask, will you pay for ripped jeans or DIY is the way to go?

  4. You make ripped jeans look great, but I think I might be past the age where they look good on me. But if I had to, I would always go DIY. I can't help but think that retailers are pulling one over on me when they make me pay full price for something that's *technically* damaged!

  8. I guess ripped jeans never go out of style. They were all the rage when I was a kid...Personally, I'd do it myself vs. paying for pre-ripped jeans.

    I really love your clover necklace. My birthday is in a few months, I may have to order one!

  16. Great bag! I love the color! I must confess I'm not so good with those DIY!

  17. Ripped jeans are not my look. I like very classic jeans, no embellishments, no crazy designs on the back pocket, I don't even like contrast stitching. The craziest I get with jeans, are black waxed jeans.

    Happy weekend!

  20. I wouldn't wear ripped jeans. I have a pair, loved it then but I think it's not my thing anymore. Somehow the entire ensemble you wore look really cute.

  22. Cute outfit. i especially like the bag. I usually just waitfor my jeans to rip on their own.

  23. Cute necklace. Love that blue bag too!

  24. Personally, I would pay for anything that I like and that is worth it to me. But I am very easy with money, so this is os no surprise! (Easy not because I'm spoiled rotten, quite the opposite, but because I just don't regret spending money when they're there to be spent. My personla financial philosophy if you wish! lol)

    Anyways, I love the cute necklace - congrats on such unique design! And I definately like the pop of color :)

  25. Love your necklace!

    And as for the jeans, I'm with you. I would never pay for a ripped pair. Rip it yourself! :P
