DIY Projects to UpCycle Your Clothes During Quarantine
I've been up - cycling my clothes ever since middle school. Some of my earliest memories from growing up in Houston was when my friends and I would walk to the thrift store after school with a whole $5 in our pockets - and we would go to TOWN!
I would buy piles of denim shorts, vests, dad hats, and old T-shirts and sit for hours thinking of ways I could spruce them up! Making boards on boards on Pinterest, trying out all different types of techniques and also learning more about my own style and ability to make clothes. I have always had the idea that I want to be wearing something no one else has - custom pieces only. And who knows my sense of style better than myself?

For full disclosure, I bleached a ton of shit in this video (check out my jean jacket in this pic), and also distressed everything myself. My boots are inspired by infamous vine quotes that I hold close to my heart and have probably screamed at someone in the distance...
