I got a message from sparkmotion asking: 

So I bought three pairs of shorts that are the same style but different colors, and I was wondering if you had any DIY for something I could do to change them up? By the way I love your blog super helpful! 

1. DIY Easy Embroidered Shorts (My Junky Box) here, 2. DIY Jeans to Shorts with Added Geometric Painting (Into the Wild) here, 3. DIY Ripped Heart Detail on Denim (The Work Is Getting To Me) here, 4. DIY DSquared2 Pom Pom Shorts (Cheap Chic Obsession) here.
I have four pages of ideas for shorts. Shorts with fringe, frayed hearts, lace, bows, beads, roundups of DIY shorts on Tumblr, etc… here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/shorts
If you are thinking of dyeing your shorts I have four pages on dyeing including two roundups here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/dye

DIY Sequin Beaded Topshop Shorts Knockoff Tutorial. Top Photo: $70 Topshop Shorts here, Bottom Photo: DIY and small tutorial at Crimenes de la Moda here. *I know some of my friends dislike gluing things onto fabric - but wouldn’t this be faster and still durable if you glued the sequins and beads on then hand washed the shorts?
