Revamping your wardrobe can be simple and cheap, and spending money on brand new clothes can be avoided. Reusing clothes is trouble-free and can be done in simple steps. Start out with an oversized T-shirt, preferably one without large print on the front, because you will be turning it upside down. You’ll need scissors, a sewing machine, safety pins, and elastic. Measure your chest and cut a piece of elastic that is about the same length. Turn the T-shirt inside out and cut a small opening on the bottom hem. Pass the elastic through the opening in the hem all the way to the other end. Attach the two ends of the elastic by sewing them. Turn the shirt right side out, and cut a straight line at the top, right under the collar. Use some pins to attach the sleeves at the front of the shirt (arms crossed position). Use your sewing machine to make a hem where you cut the excess fabric. Turn the shirt inside out. Sew the sleeves to close their opening to the rest of the T-shirt. Cut two small slits on the hem of one sleeve (on the inside). Each slit should be at one end of the sleeve when it’s folded. Cut a piece of elastic and pass it through the hem of the sleeve. Sew
down the ends. Repeat on the other sleeve, and attach the sleeves to the T-shirt. You now look and feel stylish, especially knowing that your new shirt didn’t cost a dime!
Another idea is cutting an old T-shirt to have an 80’s style neckline!

From Playful to Sophisticated In a few easy steps
It’s very simple to change your whole look, just by adding different accessories to your outfit!
Raina is wearing a blue flower ruffled tank. To change this look, add a few dainty bead necklaces, black jeans or jeggings and black pumps. For a bolder look, add a blazer and bright colored pumps instead.
With a flower crochet tank, change your look and add a simple black cardigan, black pants and bright colored heels. To create a more daring look, try adding a tight black skirt instead of black pants.
“center of attention” With a cute black and white stripped ribbon tank, change it up and add some black bead necklaces, black jeans and black ribbon heels and you’re ready for a night out on the town. For a flashier look, change your black heels to red pumps and add an oversized belt!
“daring” With a grey stripped oversized tunic, add black leggings, black boots and a long chained necklace, and you will be the center of attention at any party. For a modest look, wear highwaisted black jeans and nude heels.

Black Is the New Green Author: Brandon Torberson
Green vegetables have always been the top choice for health when it comes to food, but they may actually have some competition, blackberries. This summer fruit, which typically blooms in July and August, is very high in antioxidants that help prevent and repair damage done by free radicals in our bodies. One of the antioxidants found in blackberries is called an anthocyanin. Anthocyanins are plant pigments that cause the fruitâ€™s dark coloring. These pigments provide a wide variety of health benefits such as: the ability to reduce the risk of coronary heart diseases and diabetes, as well as protect against certain cancers. Blackberries also have a high tannin count making them an astringent which is good for the skin. Tannin can also reduce minor bleeding, tighten skin tissue, and may even help intestinal inflammation. Blackberries are especially rich in fiber and vitamin C. One cup of blackberries has about eight of the twenty-five grams of fiber you need each day. As well as antioxidants, fiber, and tan-
nin; blackberries also have phytoestrogens. Phytoestrogens are plant estrogens and are predicted to help prevent cervical and breast cancer, making blackberries extremely beneficial to women who are at high-risk of getting these diseases. Blackberries can be found at your local supermarkets and local farmers markets.

DenVhere Magazine Editor-In-Chief‘s Column Since ninth grade, fashion has been my life. I started recognizing hot trends, famous designers, and I started to model. I then became very intrigued with runway. At fifteen years old I received an opportunity to walk the runway for the first time. I took that opportunity and the feeling was unbelievable. Now, I direct my own fashion shows and own a magazine that I hope many people can find inspiring. It was difficult choosing a name for this magazine, but after much deliberation, the name DenVhere stuck out to me the most. I was really inspired by my home state and thought Colorado’s capital, Denver, could come as some use for a title. My style is unique and wild. I really like to push my fashion boundaries above and beyond what the average person would. I like to mix accessories and play with my environment. I love to wear oversized sunglasses, especially at night. Reason being, sunglasses to me are like shoes to a woman, you can never have enough. Recently I discovered that I have a ton of unworn jewelry that I should have worn years ago, but for some
reason I never liked wearing jewelry until now. It’s exciting to mix and match all sorts of jewelry, especially if you play around with how you wear them. For example, I found an oversized necklace and transformed it into a belt. This is a simple way to grab someone’s attention very quickly. In my eyes, the true fashionistas of today are the ones who don’t wear it simple and clean. Huge inspiring fashion icons of this post-modern society are: Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Kim Kardashian, and much more. I end my column with this quote: “I stress fashion, because it’s my ecstasy!” -Georgez Dabit Creator/Editor-In-Chief/President/Creative Director
