Distressed Denim- How far is too far?

4f8abb205fa754fe6e3fe29aef1fb9afI recently stumbled upon a picture of Kim Kardashian wearing a pair of overly distressed jeans.  I used to throw away my distressed denim jeans when the holes got too big-maybe I should have kept them? hmm…

I love a pair of distressed jeans but I like to be sure that I still look polished while wearing them and I’m just not feeling Kim’s business on the top, party on the bottom look.

Can't go wrong with a simple white tee with a sparkly necklace to add some glam to this distressed look!
