To cut a long story short I lost my miiind...

I popped to the charity shops this morning on a mission to find some jeans that I could customise and turn into high-waisted shorts. The shops did not disappoint and I returned with these rather oddly-shaped man shorts. They are a 28" waist which is pretty small for a fella and they have tight legs and perky bum pockets (i.e pockets that are upturned to give the illusion of a roundy bottom haha). However they were only £1 so I thought I'd give them a whirl. Luckily they fit perfectly! They were the most unflattering shape before I cut them off plus I look bizarrely knock-kneed in these photos which isn't helping! (I'm blaming the uneven floor!)

p.s the title is lyrics by Spandau Ballet and involved the words cut/long/short therefore I thought it appropriate haha

 I'm really pleased with how they have turned out! They are fine for now but I feel a little DIY project coming along to make them a bit more exciting. I  discovered this AMAZING range from 'Bitching & Junkfood' on Urban Outfitter's website. I enjoy the spiky studs ones but no way can my little purse-strings stretch to £75. I think its gonna be a bag of studs off ebay and then several hours of anger patience to achieve something similar!
