DENIM LOVE AFFAIR

March 4, 2012


{H&M hi-lo chiffon dress, Provocateur Joe's Jeans, black cardigan via Taiwan, 
leather bag via Taiwan, statement necklace via Taiwan, f21 brown bow heels} 

With February behind us, I am already starting to enjoy March immensely. I've never been the biggest fan of the month of February or much of a fan at all. Why? I honestly have no idea. The only thing that perpetuates this distain are memories of bad events and bad luck that seems to plague me during those 28, and sometimes 29, days. Maybe it has to do with my need for everything to fall into pattern and, with an odd number of days, it's the awkward month out. Perhaps it has to do with the little sunshine we get during the month. No matter what, March has always been kinder to me as proven by the last couple of days which were filled with midnight baking, sing-a-longs, cuddle sesses with the besties, and tons of glorious sunshine. With only 2.5 months left until summer beckons, I am already counting down the days and crossing off the dates until the much anticipated summer haze and daze sets in.

Wore this getup to All Vintage Everything event that my internship, DNA (designers+artist), put on in the city a few weeks back. Drinks, vintage and great company, what more could you ask for on a Thursday night? I started off with the chiffon hi-low dress from H&M, a simple basic that I always gravitate towards when I'm in a rush. I've been waiting for the perfect outfit to wear the statement necklace I bought in Taiwan that reminds me of funkadelic piano keys, and this was it. Being the hardcore skinny jean wearer that I am, putting on any other cut just seems, and more so, feels wrong. Not having the denim caress and hug my calves, although freeing, feels like I'm cheating on my skinnies. But I can't help myself; my Provocateurs slims and lifts at all the right places and I've never felt prettier in a pair of jeans. It's definitely a growing love affair. I'm finally admitting it, after being in straight up denial for the past 8 year, it's finally time; Denim, I. Love. You. I do! I do!

Well, I'm glad that March treats you a lot better and if the weather on the East coast is any indication, the weather where you are must be quite pleasant as well? I like the mixture of proportions and layering in your outfit and I'm enjoying this love affair you have with denim going on, hehe. Hope you had a lovely weekend! xx
