I'm not really a big fan of what Rihanna normally wears but i do love this denim look and especially these shorts!!
I'm not sure what was wrong with this denim, but it WOULD NOT BLEACH!
I used a mixture of thick bleach and water, i left them to soak for over 6 hours and they didn't change colour at all...
I used the bleach neat and left it on my shorts and it finally started working :)
I still had to wait a long time for them to bleach, about another 6 hours but it was worth the wait
As you can see, they are significantly lighter than what they were...
All i needed to do then was to stud them! Luckily for me i already had some leftover studs from previous projects so didn't have to spend any money on them :D
I only had 88 studs, so they wern't going to look as studded as Rihanna's but i still think they look okay :)
The only problem was that i couldn't get the smell of bleach out of them. I left them over night to soak in water, washed them twice, hung them outside but they still smell :/ I guess it will just go with time ...
Something i also like at the minute are these studded shorts that don't actually have studs on!
Not sure how you would wash them and how the long the 'studs' would hold out for, but i think they're pretty cool! :)
