Denim on denim.

Filed under: Uncategorized — blindcopy @ 9:53 pm

It took me a while to start writing this post after my last one about Japan. It feels just weird. Alex and I are going to cancel our Japan trip, and I don’t want to go anywhere else. My father told me that my grandma, who lives in a suburb of Tokyo has packed a bag – just in case. And she had told him that she had actually put only pictures of us, her grandchildren and family in her bag. This woman kills me. Seriously, how can I think of anything else now? I hope that everything’s gonna be alright. Somehow. And while I hesitate to keep on writing about what I used to write about, life goes on in Japan. So I’ll put myself together and stop whining for now.

What you see here in one of my really bad closet shots (I took it straight after I came back from work, and it was already dark) is my denim on denim outfit. It consists of a Prada shirt dress, one of my Current/Elliott pants and Stella McCartney cork platforms. The shirt dress always makes me feel really good (don’t know why – I think it’s the soft material), but the combination with the jeans left my environment (that is the people in my office) slightly irritated and me insecure as a result. Have I missed the point when denim on denim became socially unacceptable (again)? Or did I combine the wrong denim with the wrong denim (or the right with the wrong? whatever!)? Opinions?

Ah, look at this shining example of mixed denim. It’s Celine Pre-Fall 2011 (liked the collection very much, was disappointed with the Winter 2011 collection, though).




  1. I love it!! You’re so beautiful! ❤

    And I really like how you put denim on denim, what's the problem with the people in your office did they eat heavy stuff for dinner yesterday and sleep bad?? Tsk!
    I don't like denim on denim of too much different colors (for example dark denim pants and very light denim shirt) but how you did it it's really cool and modern, I love it! And the shoes suit so well!

    I understand why you cancel your trip but still it must be very hard for you not to have the possibility to see your family. I can't even imagine how you're feeling, even I, without any relatives there, am going through a difficult moment and I have very bad moments of the day so I can't really imagine how this is for you.
    I so would like to be able to spend even just one evening with you, and do stupid things like our nails while we eat bread and Nutella and watch chick/teen movies of the 80s, just to feel happy and light for one night… Or in the contrary, maybe drinking wine and talking about all this crazy things going on in Japan, until we don't have words left. In any case, I would like to support you and live this moment with you but I can't and I am so sorry… 😦 its' sad
    But hey, you've got my email! It's not much… but I'm here! 🙂

    many many kisses

  2. It must be very difficult to write and think of anything else but how things are going in Japan and how your relatives are. Even though I’ve never been and don’t know anyone in Japan it feels a bit wrong to not talk about it on the blog.
    But lets try to talk really superficial, fun stuff like denim-on-denim… It looks great, you have just convinced me to wear it more often.

  4. Awwww you look so tired hun, hope I am mistaken…

    I’ve been sporting denim to denim back in college, it’s one of my fave! Glad to see it’s back on the trend. You pull the outfit effortlessly, fab! 😀

  5. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with your denim on denim look! I just hate to think that the people in your office dared to be irritated just because you’re wearing something you like! You don’t need to care about them too much! I’ve never wore denim on denim before but if I do, I’ll probably paired the light color denim with a darker wash denim. xoxoxoo

  6. I am so sorry to hear about your cancelled trip. It must be a really hard time for you. I feel bad about it, but I can’t even imagine how terrible it must be to have relatives there.

    Nothing wrong with denim on denim, you look great! The people in your office are just narrow-minded. 😉

    And thank you,I had a great birthday! 😀
