Vintage Denim Find: Dip-Dye Pink & Yellow Levi’s Jean Shorts

We’ll be the first to admit, we’re constantly browsing Etsy for cheap jeans and exciting vintage denim, whether it’s the DIY ambitions a super creative designer-in-the-making or straight up hard-to-find retro jeans that our parents used to love. Today though, we came across a real gem: vintage Levi high-waisted white jean short, dip-dyed to pastel perfection. And we decided to post them up instead of buying them and making a run for it. You’re welcome!

Denim Accessories We Love: Jean iPad Case

Etsy has done it again! Just when we were getting concerned that the world of denim accessories was losing steam, we found one that is perfect for men AND women: a black denim iPad case! Not only do we love it because it is made from the loveliest of fabrics, but the bold red stitching really sets it apart from your normal iPad accessory. Topped off with a funky black, red, and white printed lining, you’ll get automatic cool points from techies and fashionistas alike! (Now that is hard to do!) Reinforced with velcro and foam to make sure your iPad stays out of harm’s way, there is nothing left to worry about besides the impending theft from your soon to be jealous friends.

Denim Bloomer Shorts on Etsy

When the temperatures rise and the same old denim shorts aren’t doing it for you, consider a fun girlie retro look: the bloomers.  Fashioned for grown ups in a leaner look (versus a baggy, tiered ruffle diaper look), the elasticized leg opening shields your skivvies from the elements while allowing you to show optimum leg.  Denim bloomer shorts are hard to find at the moment (though there is a cute pair by House of Cassette online at 80s Purple), but you can count on Etsy to bring you vintage styles just when you need them!

Both denim bloomer shorts are upcycled denim, so you can feel good about the purchase (plus they’re only $25 to $27 each!).   We think a loose, cap sleeve blouse or frilly white tank top and wedge espadrilles would look swimmingly with these denim shorts.  To check out these bloomers, go to Etsy to shop!

$10 Denim! Floral Denim Jacket on Etsy

Budget-chic has never looked so good. This beige & floral denim jacket on Etsy is our official find of the day. The cropped style and medium-weight fabrication makes it a flawless fit for spring, with double-breast pockets and a cute collar. The shop owner rolls up the sleeves and pairs it with nautical stripes and a leather belt, which is pretty much exactly how you should style it when you score it. The price? A mere $10! Don’t wait—Etsy items are often one of a kind!

Weirdest Denim Finds on Regretsy

They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, and Regretsy is a blog which makes this statement true by mining sites like Etsy to feature the vintage and handmade goods world’s best fails.  We rounded up a collection—more of a retrospective—of denim goods that are considered bad on Regretsy for your preemptive research pleasure.  Some are more “creative” than others; some need some serious denim therapy; and others are head scratchers.  But, that’s not all: if you think the product descriptions are in itself priceless, you should check out Regretsy’s snarky version: veritable nuggets of wisdom in slightly more than 140 characters.  You’re welcome.


For this last Regretsy find, be sure to click through to the original source on Etsy for an update, where the seller has re-listed the newly-cleaned denim shirt and added her own sarcastic (but apologetic) remarks.
