DIY Lace Shorts

Hey Guys Its Adri!

I want to show you a quick easy way to jazz up your shorts and make them a bit longer at the same time! This is a No sew method....mainly because I was being lazy LOL. However if you have a knack for sewing you could do that instead of using fabric me!

What you will need
Old pair of shorts
Fabric glue or needle & thread 
One or two yards of lace depending.

Step One
Pick a pair of shorts you want to add the lace to and pick what color/kind of lace you want to use ( I used black lace that I got at a thrift store this is just an example.) 

Step Two
Measure the lace to fit the circumference of the inside of the shorts and glue/sew. I let the lace overlap a bit on the inner thigh part of the shorts just to make sure I used enough lace. I also used bobby pins to hold the glue in place for an hour to let it dry.

Step Three
After letting the glue dry or your done sewing this is what you shorts should look like.

Step Four
Rock your cute newly Re-Vamped shorts! I wear these all the time and get loads of compliments.

If you try it out and let me know how it goes.

A little about me....

My name is Adriana...Adri for short....Well...I have just made an extreme move from a large city full of fashion and events to a small town that doesn't have much..ha! It was a hard adjustment at Cheesecake Factory, Forever21, Hot Dog On A Stick, In and Out...the list goes on. Tear..

...But it's not all bad fact I really like it! Don't get me wrong at first I was loosing my mind! Going Forever21 cold turkey is harsh! However I have really been able to develop my own style and not just what the mainstream is wearing. I love all things art! My fashion style is a mix of Clint Eastwood, Jonny Depp, and Shakira. I can't wait to share my thoughts and fashion with you guys.

My thoughts on thrifting

Hey guys!

Below are the reasons I love to thrift, some thrifting tips, and thrifted outfits.


I enjoy thrifting for four reasons:

1) The prices are cheap and I can buy more for less and still get good quality.

2) I love vintage clothes and accessories.

3) The thrift stores I go to use the money I spend to help people in need such as local cancer foundations, shelters for abused women/children and homeless.... Fashion is often thought of as a vain. I really like to turn my drive for styles into a positive. If I am going to spend money buying something I don't need...but rather want....better it benefit someone in in actual need.

4) I like to hunt for fashion finds that know one else will be wearing.

Thrifting Tips

1) Don't expect to find great items every time. Thrifting is a hobby. I have gone places and found nothing....I have also gone places and found great things.

2) Look through everything. That's how you will find the diamond in rough.

3) Take advantage of donating old clothes for discounts on new purchases.

4) Go thrifting with your friends is fun to laugh about the crazy things you find wil shopping.

Thrifted outfits:

So this I found this awesome studded cardigan and plain white Tee at Goodwill. I paired it with dark washed shorts and leggings...and lots of edgy pieces of silver bling.

This was a great find! This black mens styled blazer and mens Harley Davidson shirt. I am obsessed with Harley shirts. I found both at Savers. I paired this look with studded shorts, black tights, with my motorcycle boots and socks.

I found these black and white printed jeans and long sleeve black over sized top from Savers. I added my statement long necklace and my old Doc Martin's.
