So there I was: hand absentmindedly skimming the racks, humming Butterfly Fly Away, when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a frayed hem. Now if you know me you know I'm all about a good pair of jeans. I'm not biased. I'll find them at the flea market, the boyfriend's floor or a sample sale. Just hand over the denim and no one will get hurt. Next thing I know, despite not realllllly needing another pair, I find myself in the fitting room discussing the pros and cons of a pretty ridiculously cool pair of bells.
Pros: faded wash, perfectly frayed uneven hems, high waist, worn holes in all the right places
Cons: little tight in the upper leg, maybe a tiny bit too long
Summary: a few stretches in the fitting room at the advice of my fave shopgirl and sold! now contemplating another pair one size up to hem and wear with cowboy boots.
They're keepers. Examine the evidence:
Back hem details: aged to perfection.
Fit right over the much needed platform, but I'm only 5'3'' so if you're taller they might be just right.
Let me know if you have them, get them, or own a similar pair. Would love to see how you're wearing them!
