I had been unsuccessfully searching for the perfect pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans for two seasons. During another unsuccessful trip to the dressing room, it dawned on me to DIY my own. I immediately drove to my local Goodwill and scoured the jean racks for the perfect pair of relaxed fit jeans. My first idea was to search the boys jeans (I have less in common with a 12-year-old than I thought..thanks JNCO Pipes). Next idea was to search the women’s jeans but 2-3 sizes bigger. This is where I found the perfect “relaxed” fit pair of jeans from GAP. I used this tutorial to help my create the perfect (and one of a kind) pair of destroyed boyfriend jeans. I have worn these jeans all summer and into fall (also featured here). One of the great (easiest) finds for Goodwill newbies is the jean rack. A great pair of designer jeans is buried in your local Goodwill, if only you dig hard enough!
Another easy Goodwill DIY is this druzy pendant necklace. Druzy jewelry his having a huge moment right now (Thanks Kendra Scott!). Can you believe this necklace used to be a chain belt from Goodwill? Believe it! This simple DIY helped me turn it in to a one-of-a-kind necklace!
