When I’m traveling, I always want to integrate with the people/county I visit. One of the things I loved so much about the Berliners is their sense of fashion! Vintage galore! I styled most of my outfits to feel like a hipster in Berlin and become one of them instead of a tourist walking/cycling around with a map haha.
I totally felt a Berliner in this outfit. First of all, the ones who follow me on my social media channels (Facebook/Instagram/Twitter) must have seen the pictures of me ripping my jeans in the middle of the night with the help of my kitchen scissors. Not the most ideal scissor to cut jeans, but hey, that’s what creativity is about right?! I was always scared to rip my jeans by myself, but with this old pair I didn’t care at all! A small cut on the knees (where you want it to be ripped) is all you have to do! After that, get into the jeans and get into the crouching position. The jeans will rip automatically and that what makes it look natural! That’s the trick! And of course, the cut will get bigger in time, but that shouldn’t be a problem! 😉 Going to Berlin made me want to bring a pair of ripped jeans so badly that I just did it! And now I love it, so someone has to stop me from demolishing ALL my jeans, hihi!
Secondly! I couldn’t be happier with this vintage find! How cool is this bag?! I can actually use it for my weekend trips. Berlin is theplace to find vintage treasures. It sure was for me! I had to stop myself from buying a lot of stuff, but I couldn’t ignore this one. I can even use it to decorate my place! To get the total hipster look, my vintage sweater couldn’t miss out! I love this outfit I must say! Hipster all over, am I Berliner enough or what? 😉
Have you ripped your jeans as well and what do you think of this trend?
I would love to know!
