Budget denim, high satisfaction nonethelessPosted: March 11, 2011
If you’re anything like me you probably have a dozen (or more) of denims in your closet and still try to find that perfect pair of jeans.
I’ve tried them all brands*, I even own a few pairs of the most reputed ones. Used to swear by 7ForAllMankind and Notify, I was in love with my friend’s Stella McCartney boyfriend jeans** and daydreamed about the Current Elliotts and other J Brands.
These days, I’m most happy with my Zara budget denim tailor-made*** with a decisive scissors cut by yours truly.
I’m (happily) wearing:
Cigarette jeans / Zara
Dark blue stone embellished flats / Miu Miu
*Well, almost. Every time I see a new model, I’m tempted to try it, even if I know all too well I do not need it. But then, who buys clothes because they need them? ;-)
**Still am albeit the pitiless comment they elicited from my elder sister when she first saw me wearing them: “They are so NOT feminine!” Well, yeah, it’s a boyfriend cut. Still feminine – says I – but in an unconventional way? ;-)
***Which is another way to say “shortened to fit my 1,60 cm”; everyone knows, they make these impossible long trousers at Zara ;-)
