I’ve been on the hunt for an oversized denim jacket for a while and thanks to Goodwill I snagged one for five bucks. After wearing it a few times I felt like something was missing, so I decided to turn it into DIY project. I knew two things for sure, I wanted to distress it and add patches. The final detail I wanted came from the iconic Nina Simone. Something she said that has always stuck with me was:
When I heard her say those words they resonated with me so much that I got stuck in a trance of how amazing that feeling would actually be. I can’t begin to tell you how many things I didn’t do and still haven’t done, simply out of fear. Tackling fears has made it to the top of my “to do” list the older I get. That’s why I decided to paint “Freedom = Fearless” on that back of the jacket. Whether I show it in the things I wear, do, or say; I want to start living life fearlessly.
Though a bit out of my comfort zone (I like to keep it simple), I'm pretty happy with the results. I'm thinking of pairing it with an oversized white t-shirt and a pair of mules. Crossing my fingers that the look comes out how I envision it.
Have you tried any cool DIY Projects lately? I’ve been getting bored with my apartment so I might have more coming to the blog.
