If you haven’t fallen in love with denim yet, WHY NOT?
This trend is one that has always been a standout in the fashion industry. Denim never truly leaves, as it is constantly recreated and presented as a new style. I have always loved denim. Everything about good stiff genuine denim has my heart.
One of my favorite stores, GAP, has definitely made a statement with the reissue campaign of a vintage Denim look, which I have already shopped. The 1969 Collection has always been perfect, but this new campaign they have pushed, #IAMGAP, is all about recreating that vintage look in denim, pocket tees, and such. I absolutely adore everything about it. Especially staring at that darling Naomi Campbell; looking nothing over 30. Absolutely stunning.
Where do I start with this look. Naomi was a great choice to put in this outfit. Not only did she model for GAP so long ago; wearing this very look, but she has not aged a bit. The lady truly earned her stripes in the modeling industry and definitely was a great pick for this reissue campaign brought to you by GAP. I have worn the GAP brand since 2002 when I discovered their existence near the campus of LSU. Not only were the clothing of good quality, but they had Long and Lean jeans. I am talking, 35-36″ inseam Long and they were in store. I truly could not afford the jeans at that time because I was; you know it, a broke college student, so I made friends with an employee who made sure to notify me when those jeans were on SALE or promos surfaced. I found my way working for GAP in the Summer of 2003 and oh boy, I became a fanatic.
This started the era of MEek loving denim; good denim; stiff denim; quality denim AND GAP was the spot.
For me, denim never gets old. I can have it in my closet today and wear it 15 years later; provided I don’t gain a pound, with the same appeal and jazz as before. It’s such a timeless fabric that makes a statement for itself. Denim can speak to the world without ever saying a word. I chose to do a monochromatic denim look; to flaunt this newly grabbed Distressed Denim Jacket from HerStory Style Bar & Boutique (website underway),since there is never a things as too much denim in one look. I truly pulled off a denim masterpiece. Jacket, Jeans, and Shoes…oooh lala.
Catch your breathe yet? No worries; that was my reaction when I stumbled across these babies.
Here’s the story behind these oh so amazing Denim Pumps. I visited Neiman Marcus to scout my birthday present for my upcoming special day. Since all Christian Louboutin shoes are made different, the size differs per collection; therefore, I needed a consultation to make sure I had the info necessary to hand off to hubby for a successful trip when he returned. Instead of following through with my original plans, I moseyed on over to the CLEARANCE racks and started hunting. These denim Yves Saint Laurent shoes were staring right at me and even though they were a half size to big, I could not say no. I paid $155 for some $800 shoes; that was a steal in my book, these babies had to be mine. And I am just so happy I made that decision. Here’s to MEek and monochromatic denim on this beautiful Texas day.
Forever a denim girl.
Back to life, Back to reality…
