BUILDING A DENIM WARDROBE: THE UPGRADE
By Ann of Holier than Now
So I do not know about you individuals, however I constantly spend the last days of the year clearing out my closet, tossing points in bags to offer or donate, and also typically having a consider what I need (and also what sartorial blunders not to repeat in the coming year).
In 2011, I started creating for Eat Sleep Denim, and also ever since the denim stylings of Jennine, Taylor and also the several featured blog writers has actually strengthened my love for all things jean– yet to be straightforward, it’s also opened my eyes to buying developer denim. For 2012, I have actually determined I’m mosting likely to adhere to the fundamental shapes as well as designs in my “core” denim closet (as revealed over)– yet I’m going to stop getting denims I’m not totally in love with as well as begin saving up.
Way too many not-quite-right sets entered my free gift container this year– and with all the sales going on now, it would in fact be much more sensible for me to invest a little extra for a pair I’ll wear non-stop. (This is true of the remainder of my closet as well … I really needed to quit and also believe if I’ve even worn any of my inexpensive “fashionable” shopping center pieces more than when).
To this end, I’ve created a little “want list” … some I know I’ll never possess unless they go down to 70%+ off, however others I’m budgeting for now!
1. Update my daily tan pants to Theyskens Theory (these Pepper Werner Pants are $206.50– 30% off). My best black jobs trousers are Theory, as well as I have actually had them for 7 YEARS (!), so this seems like a great step.
2. Switch over from a black skinny jean to a black natural leather skinny. A girl can fantasize! These are Cloth & Bone/Jean Skinny Natural Leather Trousers ($ 693- 30% off). I’m sure I ‘d use them for several years, damage them in until they fit me completely … sigh.
3. I kind of reside in my Void 1969 bell bases, however I would certainly like a lighter pair for Spring/Summer and also I love the lacing information of these AG Adriano Goldschmied Lula Flare Jeans ($ 225).
4. My day-to-day blue skinnies are from a brand so no-name that I took the tag off as well as honestly … they do not actually fit me: (Too much eggnog. Anyhow, I’ve listened to many good ideas concerning Rag & Bone denim that I might try The Skinny Denims ($ 198). After I finish this glass …
5. The polkadot Quiksilver pants were seriously the sleeper hit of my whole wardrobe this year. Definitely really feeling the floral jeans as my print for Springtime and also I believe these Citizens of Humankind Mandy Floral Roll Up Pants ($ 189) would certainly make a fine addition
What’s on your dream denim want list? (Allow’s pretend cash is no things!)
