Love of Distressing is a company I launched in December 2014. If you have been following me on Instagram for a while, it’s no secret, I love distressed fashion. Plus, distressed fashion is HUGE right now!It’s also no secret a lot of the brands I wear can be pricey. So… I came up with my own line of shirts that encompass all that I love about distressing at a fraction of the cost.
When I’m out shopping for new clothes the first thing I think about before making a purchase is, “do I already have too many of these or in this style.” I mean, it’s fine to buy the same boxers if you love the brand and style… that I get. But, what I don’t understand is people who buy the same shirt, same color and same style over and over. To me, it just seems like a waste. Plus, they kinda look like they are wearing the same thing everyday and should probably wash their stuff… boring. I want something different… something that not everyone has and something when I’m picking my outfit for the day stands out as a cool piece that I WANT to wear. Not something I browse by everyday in my closet and never wear and worse… never throw out (donate).
Thus, Love of Distressing was born. At first, I starting making shirts for myself. I wanted to see if I could do a better job (in my opinion) than the shirts out there. I played with different ways to distress, color wash and paint my shirts. I still don’t have one simple way I make each shirt. Sometimes I just play until I like what I’m seeing. I personally distress and design each shirt by hand and no two shirts are the same. This I love!
So for what it is… I’m loving making these shirts and I hope you like wearing them as much as I do making them. Oh ya… and buy something DIFFERENT!
