jamie clare said...

oh, believe me, the ripped trend will be finding it's way into my wardrobe for sure! and it's so nice that it's easy to DIY...my old jeans won't see this coming.

pigeon.toed said...

i would diy first! ive seen several on the blogs that came out amazing!

Dooder City said...

I love it. I don't know if I could pull off this torn look but girls can! Plus, it is such an excuse for an arts and crafts project!

Hemaly said...

I would diy definitely. Ugh, that model (Ali Stephens) in the Chanel tweed skirt looks horrendous!! lol

MizzJ said...

I'm not loving the ripped jeans look, but I love that Nina Ricci dress - it's so moody, it's great!

Thanks for the comment on my blog, I'm glad you took my comments well instead of as offensive!

Savvy Mode SG said...

rip tee and jeans are definitely diy worthy. i don't know if torn chanel jacket is that cool. maybe only in theory!

J'Adore Fashion said...

Meg said...

Some of these you can definately do yourself! Others might be better to buy prossionally done, but experimentation is definately fun too!

Fashion Moment said...

Winnie said...

DIY all the way, some of the bloggers have made some pretty amazing creations!

Penny said...

i think definitely DIY, it can be done easily because you aren't trying to make anything look neat or perfect!

rossovelvet said...

How much can I love this ?!
The Wang, the Nina Ricci... looove it !
And it's such an extatic moment, when you ' grungize ' or rip or... well I LOOOVE doing that, especially with tights... better than a punching ball xD.

Wish to see some DIY then !!

closeup said...

I love Zac Posen's cut ...

lisa said...

The funny thing about DIY for me is I say to myself I can make it, but I never get around to doing it. :)

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Make Do Style said...

It's cool for rock chic gals but not for me I would just look like I'd had an accident even with the Chanel jacket!

Aliena said...

I love that alexander wang jumper!!!

Midnight traveller said...

I love how some people area layering the distressed look with something completely structural and very much intact underneath. aka. Chris Benz above.

fashionknitsta said...

I'd love to see a DIY of these ripped items, destroying clothes is fun!

Becca Shelby said...

DIY for certain-at least on the bigger investment looks/pieces.

I had the ripped up true religion jeans the first time they came out with them like 5 years ago-and I LOVED AND LIVED in them until the horizontal threads were all broken and the knees entirely blown out. I have a feeling you'd get at least as much wear out of the current ripped skinny jean thang.

Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

The Seeker said...

I agree with Janet, not classy but cool ;)

Diego R. Wyatt said...

I love Zac Posen's structured rips, he is ahead of his time and the Hervé Léger design looks amazing. I wonder who could do it justice...

Oh I heart ripped jeans.

Takes me back to high school where my English teacher looked at my fave pair of ripped jeans and said, "Sometimes we love our jeans so much and we can't let go when they're done."

Ha! What would he know????
