the blue and the gray

Wednesday, March 1, 2017

As part of my quest to find the new "me" (haha, lies, just a new closet) I was determined to try some different fits of denim. I'm a mid-rise skinny girl 90% of the time, and in most cases that's because everything else makes me feel like all you see is VBL. And while I'm a big proponent of to-each-their-own, that was not the look I was going for.

And then walked in these super high rise from Lucky. I like to wander through their stories because I actually fit most of their denim pretty well, but these surprised even me. I felt both vintage and classic, which is exactly what I wanted - plus after cutting off the bottoms I got the raw hem in their too.

All in all this was a super simple look that I felt fantastic in. Winner!

Fit Note: Part of the reason these jeans works so well is the low stretch. I'm wearing a size 14/32, and actually cut a few inches off the bottom to get the look I wanted. I also cut out some denim reinforcement they had on the inside of the knees, behind the distressing.
