Old School Denim

This is the best time to try vintage denim….!

Denim skirt: Vintage. Topshop does good takes if you’d rather short cut the hunt. Those in London should check out Topshop’s vintage section in Oxford Circus. Shirt:  Thrift.  Sandals: Mango (on sale).  Bag: Thrift (Beacons Closet). Cool take from Topshop.  Hand cuff necklace: Jennifer Zeuner. Similar from Zulili. Crucifix necklace: Personal gift.  Shades: Ray-Ban Clubmasters

Yes I’m talking about vintage shops – again!  You can’t get out of bed without seeing retro denim rammed down our throats (I happen to be ok with it being a vintage lover), but for those that are not you can toe dip the vibe on the cheap.

Granted – some vintage cuts and rinses are straight up bad eighties but it’s still worth it to find a better made denim skirt or pair of Levi’s.  I say sod the copies and wear original.

Why WAS everything better made before anyway??

    I was just having this conversation with a customer recently. (I run a local fashion truck here in Northern CA that I sell Vintage clothing out of) I know that was a shameless plug, but she was looking at the clothes and we were talking about how much better they were constructed. I think it was because there were
    more resources and less demand, so there was more time to put quality in to the process. (Mylove For Vintage) on Instagram.

    I love the look, especially the jean skirt.

    I’ve been on the search for the perfect denim skirt, kicking myself for the ones I wore in high school that are long gone….seems the local thrifts only have the which-corner-are-you-working-tonight lengths. But, the hunt is the fun part, no?
