double denim & neon.

 Wholesale-dress.net chambray shirt; Levi's cut-off shorts; c/o The Leather Satchel Co. bag; Sam Edelman boots; The Cobra Shop sunglasses; Forever 21 necklace & belt; vintage, handcrafted, & shopbeaumonstre jewelry
I was at a graduation party this weekend & it was the first time I had seen a lot of relatives in years. & we're talking way distant relatives.. like 4th & 5th cousins. All of my younger cousins ended up married with multiple kids & my mom jokingly told me I looked like an old maid. Then a great aunt or something came up to me & instead of saying "Hello, I haven't seen you in 6 years, how are you?" this is how our conversation went:
"Are you married?"
"No."
"Oh. Well are you getting married?"
"No."
"Oh. Well when you do get married how many kids do you want?"
"I don't want kids, just cats."
"That's nice."
An hour later..
"Do you have a boyfriend?"
"No."
"Well there's a lot of single men here! (pointing to the 16-18 year old boys)"
...wtf? I'm pretty sure it's not 1907.  & I'm pretty sure I still have a couple years (or fucking 20) before I turn into an old maid. Or before I turn to pedophilia.

p.s. I added a new double finger talon ring to my shop. Get yo paws on these claws HERE.

  1. This is just too damn good. Must find something neon to wear with all my denim things!

    Marry me and we'll have as many cats as you want. <3

  2. Ahh how awkward was that conversation!

    Love the double denim, the necklace tops it off nicely :)

  3. Oh I really like this! Two denim things combined with that neon bag is just perfect idea.

  5. THIS IS PERFECT. I told my mother that she'd better get really attached to my dog because that's the closest she will ever get to a grandchild.

  14. Hahahaa I know, I hate when people ask stuff like that!! That's when I decide to shock the hell out of them so they stop talking to me and I say something like "well, it seems like everytime I meet someone that I can see a future with, they get turned off by my morbid fascination with necrophilia".

    HA! You look awesome. I've tried the Canadian tuxedo, but never made it out the door... double denim was just not made for everyone ;)

  16. I used to get the same questions. I am getting married now, but who is anyone to ask in the first place. Urgh. Relatives can be a-holes.

  20. a part of me is glad that my family dislikes one another and i don't have to have little reunions. but then, you know, not having it and wanting to know various members & who you are related to.
    anyway. I really love this look. I'm always worried that my double denim will look like a Canadian tuxedo or jay leno, but this gives me ideas & way to lean toward :)

  21. love your collar and satchel, absolutely stunning denim look :-)

    ReplyDelete
  22. hahahaha this made me laugh. btw i have been looking for that satchel

  23. Old people, they always want to get everyone together *shakes head*. Lucky I don't meet many of the oldies in my family. This double denim outfit was quite brave to take on, nothing I would do as I am not a denim person, but it looks great on you.
