Have an old pair of jeans lying around that you just can’t throw away? No problem! In just three simple steps you can modify your outdated shorts just how you like them. Here’s an easy and affordable way to transform your denim.
Supplies: Denim Shorts or Pants, Scissors, Tweezers, Seam Ripper (Optional)
First, use the seam ripper to remove any unwanted and outdated threading or embellishment.
Next, use the scissors to make two horizontal incisions where you want the distressing to be. Make sure they’re parallel cuts so there are as many white thread fillings as possible left after you pull out the warp threads.
Lastly, use the tweezers to pull out the blue vertical threads to reveal the white horizontal threads.
As you can see, tweezers are your best friend! Keep pulling vertical blue threads until you are satisfied with the distressing. It’s that simple, enjoy your new jean shorts and show them off in the warm weather to come!
French poet Guillaume Apollinaire said “Color is the fruit of life,” and we can’t agree more! The beginning of spring can seem like a continuous winter with the windy and rainy climate making us want to throw on that black or gray coat causing us to blend in with gruesome weather. Get a jumpstart on your spring style and add a pop of color to your outfits. You can add color to your outfits in many ways. Simply wear a bright rain jacket or a vest with a cozy sweatshirt underneath. No bright jackets in your closet? No problem! Look for pastels in beanies, knee high socks, belts, gloves and scarves. Even the tiniest amount of color can immediately boost your mood in this gloomy weather until you can pull those sundresses out. Go make a statement and tell the streets who you are with your bold, bright fashion diversity!
If you are heading home to the Portland area for spring break or just visiting PDX for the weekend, Tea Bar is not to be missed. Tea Bar, located on Killingsworth and 16th in NE Portland, is a modern cafe (that gets fantastic light) featuring hot and cold tea lattes, matcha green tea, and a small variety of baked goods. The staff is extremely friendly and suggest wonderful recommendations. Tea Bar has definitely become one of my go-to Portland cafes.

Don’t lie, all you guys cringe every time you have to wear a tie. A tie shouldn’t be tedious accessory, but rather a confidence boost for all men as they are the best accessories when it comes to completing your attire. To feel the best in your tie you must have the perfect combination of pattern, texture, and color to coordinate with the rest of your outfit.
If your shirt is patterned, then the most suitable tie to have on should be a sleek and solid color. The color should match one color in the pattern or be neutral. This prevents you from looking too overbearing and uneasy. Fun, patterned ties are appropriate when your shirt is a solid color. The background color of the tie should be in the same family as the color of your shirt. This allows your tie to stand out without being arbitrary.
Below is a tutorial of our favorite way to tie a tie.
