When I wear long, bootcut jeans I feel super cool. I don’t know why. Perhaps the heels I need to wear to keep the pants from dragging on the ground give me a certain confidence-boosting strut.
Today I broke out my Rock and Republic jeans. I picked these up at a clothing exchange and was afraid to wear them. They’re snug and I didn’t want to stretch them out. Silly, I know. Denim is one of the more durable items of clothing out there. Plus, it’s meant to be broken in. So I cast off my doubts and went with it.
Jeans: Rock and Republic via swapped
Wristlet: Coach via thrifted
Overall, thanks to the thrifting, swapping, and DIYing, this was an inexpensive outfit. Grand total: $65. Not a bad way to feel badass.
