I shared this video on IGTV this summer, but I also wanted to share it on the blog and my baby of a YouTube channel in case any of you missed it!

Whenever I wear jeans with a raw hem, I get questions from y’all if I cut them, how I cut them, etc. I’ve been taking scissors to my jeans for about 10 years and haven’t gotten a pair hemmed in who-knows-how-long. It’s so easy to do yourself and completely free! Plus I love that relaxed look of a raw hem. They feel cool and lived in.

If you like this video, I’d love to hear what else you guys would like to see! I still have two fun videos I filmed in OC to share, and I’m planning on putting together a San Francisco apartment tour this fall.  You can now find all the videos on CBL in the “video” category or by clicking the YouTube icon at the top right of this site.

You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel to see when new videos are posted! Thank you so much for reading – XO –

  1. I must have missed this video earlier but I’m so glad you re-posted it! I can’t wait to try this at home and my hubby will be so pleased that I’m saving money like this!

  2. Great post and video! I love how easy you made it look distressing your jeans! I’m afraid I would make mine look like I was attacked by bears lol! I can’t wait to see more videos in the future!
