Denim





hat, Market Supply Co / shirt & shoes, thrifted / bag & belt, vintage / jeans, Levi's


It's been so long since I've worn something worth dragging Mike out of the house for pictures. Actually, I've just been wearing various of the above theme, but yesterday I wore proper shoes and a belt, so I'm deeming this "put together." 

I was so excited to debut these jeans on the blog, as I thought I finally found a pair that fit perfectly right out of the store. How wrong I was. The minute I loaded these photos onto my decrepit Dell I saw it: the evil denim crotch bunching that happens when your butt wears a different (i.e. larger) size jean than your waist. Sigh. To the tailor they go. I wish clothes were still made like they were in my favorite childhood books, Anne of Greene Gables and the entire Little House series. In those books there was always at least one scene where the ladies would go to the general store, choose a fabric they liked, then have a dress made to their measurements. I loved that purchasing clothes was such a special occasion. I also loved the part when Anne Shirley broke a slate over Gilbert's head. I think if it weren't for the lack of television, gender equality, and sterile medical equipment, I would have really liked living in 1908.

  1. This outfit is perfect and I want to steal that hat. Good luck with the jeans tailoring, I never have enough patience with tailoring. I just end up getting pants that fit everywhere except the waist and wander about life with a muffin top.

    1. Andrea, despite your hardcore hot dog diet I've heard so much about from Merl, I see no muffin top in sight. No, that isn't fair, but it's the truth. You's a hottie.

  2. That bag is amazing. How I wish I could wear a hat this well. It looks amazing on you. Lucky for me I have the world's largest head so hats are out for me. xo

    1. Thank you! My husband shares your large head problem when it comes to hats, but I'd trade all of my hats for your extra brains any day (that's why his head is so huge, according to him).

  3. You're a denim hegemon.

    I, like Andrea, have no tailoring patience. Last time it look the tailor 2.5 weeks to do a simple hem.

    1. Firstly, thank you so much for using a word I had to look up (seriously). Hegemon is my new favorite word.

      Secondly, hems are the WORST. They are just annoying enough to want to fix, but often times still wearable, so they can totally be put off.

  4. You look really good. And in my opinion, those jeans do not need kind of alteration. After all, everyone's body is different.. and a little bit of crease here and there doesn't matter that much.. as far as you feel comfortable wearing the clothing!

  5. why you can't see any crotch bunching at all! haha though it WOULD be pretty cool to have a dress made for you everytime you wanted a new piece. though imagine waiting for it- i'd be jumping out of my skin. By the way, you look adorable. I LOVE your hat!
