Hacked off hems (DIY'd) and little chain bags: these are few of my favorite things. For the longest time I hated little cross body bags. I couldn't see a point in carrying a bag that couldn't fit my camera and an outfit change. Over the past year or so I found a new appreciation for little leather zip ups (I carry my saint laurent mini duffle almost daily.) They're the best for evening activities because let's be real: no one at the bar likes getting bumped by someones massive tote. Also on a side note: 98% of my denim now has a raw hem. The easiest DIY ever - literally cut the bottom hem off at the desired point (few inches up for a cute crop) and through them in the wash. Viola! Your old skinnies has some new tattered flare.
