It’s almost the end of summer and I desperately wanted to join the pearl jeans gang. I think it looks so cool paired with white sneakers or mules.
I searched the internet and found not one pair of tall pearl jeans. I wasn’t gonna to let this go…. the idea of buying a regular pair of jeans and making it work crossed my mind🤔🤔 but I didn’t want to settle for that.
I had just bought a new pair of Joni Jeans from the Topshop sales. So I decided to make my very own pearl jeans.
Whenever I go to Walthamstow market, I feel like a kid at a candy store. I love checking out the fabric and haberdashery stores. My mind literally wonders as I think about all the things I can customise or make.
I bought a chain pearls for £1. It contained about 100 pearls, although I can’t tell you the size.
Deciding where to place the beads was easy. I wanted something eye catching so I sewed the pearls randomly by the ankles of the Jeans and along the waist/thigh area.
It turned out more beautiful than expected. Totally worth the hard work of making a knot behind each pearl. I have since learnt that I could have used pearl rivets to speed things up… maybe next time.
I finish this look by pairing my pearl jeans with an asymmetric hem top from Zara and mules from Dorothy Perkins. Read more about these shoes here.
