Dapper in denim..
Many of you may think it is a rare occasion to see me without my signature cat eye or baggy jeans but this is actually something I do regularly. I take a fashion day off to cater to my tomboyish side at least once or twice a week where I completely boycott makeup, heels, and my sassiness for a more subtle, less manageable look. On days like this I usually leave my camera home too, simply because I usually dress like this on non-blog-worthy days. This day was an exception as I was off to a meeting and thought I may need my camera. It was a productive casual day. Notice I didn’t say comfortable because believe it or not, I happen to be more comfortable in heels than flats and I feel more like myself in a dress, dolled up. This look is still me, I mean if you look at my childhood pictures, I was always in baggy jeans, boots, and my leather jacket. Not much has changed obviously. I only like jeans if they are baggy, you will rarely ever see me in skin-tight jeans because they just aren’t comfortable for me. I prefer men’s jeans actually as they just fit baggier than going up a few sizes in women’s jeans that are tailored to accentuate a woman’s curves. I am more of a pants, trousers, and leggings kind of girl in terms of women’s bottoms. Anyway, here are some photos of my look a few days ago.:)
This has become one of my favorite hats. It is vintage and was one of the last things I purchased at Billy’s Antiques. I have worn the hell out of it ever since and it always reminds me of the magical place I was once a part of. Sometimes it is refreshing to leave my cat-eye alone for a day or two. Just mascara and blush will do. 🙂My vintage doctors bag is also something I have worn to death since finding it at a flea market upstate for just $10. I mean it is so convenient because I am such a bag lady. I can fit my life into this bag and be on my merry way. My boots are from Steve Madden and my jeans are by Carrot, a new launch by Levi’s. I usually buy men’s jeans so I was shocked when I found them in the women’s section in Buffalo Exchange but they remind me so much of a pair of mens replay jeans I have that are my favorite. My fingerless gloves are Betsey Johnson and so is my hood. Even when I am dressed down I am still in Betsey!
