Denim Therapy: Repair your jeans if you hate this trend

Ripped jeans Hey, remember when we told you about the trend of ripped jeans? You should. It was yesterday. Have you seen a doctor for that? Fish oil helps.

Anyway, if you're like Deal Diva Colleen, and the thought of holes in your denim makes you want to heave a brick at Rachel Bilson, consider this:

Denim Therapy.

It's true. You can send your favorite old jeans -- the ones you ruined when you butt-planted down the stairs at the Beyonce concert -- to the doctor. Denim Therapy will repair the holes with expertly matched fibers, not patches. Check out the site for examples of the work. The site's blog also posts good deals on denim.

The process takes about two weeks and costs $7 an inch. Hems are $18 and zipper replacements are about $25. Shipping is $12 in the U.S.

It might add up, but it's probably worth it if your trusty jeans are still in style, fit and give you the Trunk Junk of 1,000 Dreams, no?  But please -- if you're still hanging on to the tapered jeans of terror from Sorority Rush 1994, JUST LET IT GO.
