Whether you're a man or woman, one of the easiest summer essentials to get is a pair of ripped jeans. I purchased a pair of light-washed Wrangler jeans from the thrift store a couple of weeks ago for $2. Using some tools around the house, I distressed them myself (not an easy process) and now have a pair that look just like any expensive ripped jeans you'd find at retail. They're a great compliment to most other summer essentials, whether your dressed down for the beach or dressed up for a night on the town!
If you want a pair, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You supply the jeans and I'll only charge $20. Holler at me! Much cheaper than the mall!
