I was really sick of my lame jeans. I had them for 2 years and was ready to make the jump to my first pair of slouch skinny jeans, but my current ones were still in very good condition. I felt weird getting a new pair of jeans and retiring the old ones. So I went on youtube to find out if it was possible to convert my jeans myself. And with success I found this great video which allowed me to do so. So if this interests you feel free to do the same to update your denim!
Here's a photo of the final product.
