…jeans, that is.
I’m not really sure about these pants. From far away they just look like light-wash boyfriend jeans, but they’re not quite baggy enough to have the right kind of fit. I might play around with the proportions, maybe unroll and taper them (they hit just above the ankle). I really like the blue and white stripes, which I stupidly forgot to take a closeup of, but I just don’t know…I’ll play around with them some more, and if I get tired of them, I’ll sell them on here… ;)
OH AND exciting news (not really), I’m in the process of (re)making a pair of jeans for myself. They’re my dad’s old ripped-up Levi’s that I’m patching, altering (ie. taking them in a LOT) and generally making awesome. I can’t wait for them to be finished..hopefully they’ll be done before it’s too hot to wear jeans.
On another jeans tangent – I’ve always wanted to buy Levi’s plain, unwashed, raw denim jeans and wear them constantly until they fade and wear out. I don’t think they come in women’s sizes (not the “traditional” style, at least), but I think it would be so cool to see the evolution of a garment, especially in photos. It would be like all those YouTube videos where people take a picture of themselves every day. My brother showed me this really cool one where a guy grows out his beard, and then the video goes in reverse and the beard shrinks back into his face. Definitely worth 5 minutes of your day.
