(this is totally unrelated but I'm highly distracted right now because Freddy Krueger and Drusilla are both on Criminal Minds right now. I'm catching up online as I write this.)
I saw Amy's denim jacket restyle a few weeks back and it motivated me to add the graphic on the back of my vest from the vintage tee I found quite awhile ago. If you haven't checked our her laster cat denim jacket you have to. I can't get over how rad it is. It reminds me of the Luchadora hoodie makeover I did a long time ago. Holy crap, have I been doing this for too long?
Anyway, back to me being a poser douche by thinking I can pull off a punk vest. Naturally Tyrone hates it but he says that about anything that exists, at least that is what he pretends to be like. I'm excited to wear it. It took me awhile to finish it but I do like how it finally turned out.
I started with a regular denim jacket, cut off the sleeves, bleached the crap out of it, painted one side of the underarm area with pink stripes (unintentional chevron pattern), added studs and sewed the graphic on the back. I can't forget to mention the safety pins on the front and I even used a sharpie to add the stripes to the front pocket. In hindsight this was fairly simple to do I just couldn't figure out exactly how I wanted it to look so I took my time with tit.

I still wear my custom chucks all of the time.
