The final result of my Doctrine Jeans DIY @ Space15Twenty

There comes a time in every young LA girl’s life when a contrarian declaration of “I’m not going to Coachella,” suddenly morphs into “I’m going to Coachella.”

To mark that very likely transition in my own life as of… about 11pm last night, here’s my very festival friendly DIY  from an event I hosted with Doctrine Jeans last week at Space15Twenty. You know I like my DIY’s easy, and here’s how:

1. Cut off jeans about x2 longer than your desired length.

2. Use a large embroidery or yarn needle and stitch haphazard X’s or +’s onto one half with yard of embroidery floss.

3. Roll ‘em up. That easy.

Give or take one low-cut armhole tank (which I recently wrote about on Nasty Gal’s awesome new blog!), you are ready for sweaty desert days and wasted nights.

Some more sage advice: whatever you wear, don’t over-think it and DO NOT don a onesie/romper/jumpsuit like those pesky Coachella fashion guides are telling you. I promise, 2 beers and one porta-potty later, you’ll thank me.
