Thrifted: Destroyed Shorts

 I've been seeing a lot of the high waisted distressed denim shorts around and have been dyeing to try them out.  I didn't want to spend $40 plus on a pair of these since I figured it's a one season type thing.  

 So I ventured into the thrift store to do it myself. 
I've never been in a thrift store before so I found it pretty overwhelming but I was happy to see that all jeans were 50% off at goodwill.

I bought these Levis for $3.  I was really inspired by Shenae Grime's pair and I think they turned out pretty well. 
After a few hours of distressing, they went from mom jeans to trendy summer shorts.  

I also bought 2 more pairs (*The pair in the middle I didn't like so I'm returning them.) Both $4.  The first pair is from Gap and the second are Abercrombie & Fitch.  
I think I'm going to dye the Abercrombie's since they're a bit boring on their own.

Have you ever gone thrifting?
