How French chic am I? It started with the sequin beret Linda gave me for my birthday and it just seemed way too obvious to pair it with some bold lip colour and a striped sweater... But I did. Because things are classic for a reason. I tried to keep it from being too prim and proper with my torn jeans and bad a$$ boots. I know it's probably time to lay the Seven 4 All Mankind jeans to rest. They started out whole, then I fell and put a hole in the knee and so I added more holes to make it look natural. The holes have grown and one is pretty much torn from seam to seam and is now starting to rip down the leg too. It's just that the fit (Roxy) of these jeans are perfect ... Next time, when I marry for money, I'm going to buy these jeans in every wash and then get a set of spares because I do things like fall down hills...
When I was a foolish student in University I would occasionally pay full price for premium denim and then survive off rice crackers because the funds were gone. I would actually say I spend more on clothes now but I diversify... dresses, heels, brown boots, snuggly sweaters... I love it all. I just can't get myself to pay full price for denim these days and as this jean style is one of the staples, it rarely goes on super-sale and super-sale is kinda my thing. I did luck out when I found these at Winners and I hope such a happy day comes again. Soon, before these fall apart completely...
