this evening at dinner my friend asked, "what's the next big thing for spring?"
and that really got me thinking. i guess i could be all forward-looking and trendy, but i must say my personal style eschews what's "HOT" (stuff that got passed over include: gladiators, fringe, cross-body 'vintage' bags) for what i feel i can pull off appropriately.
that being said, this editorial by john scarisbrick for bon magazine sparked a veritable fire in my imagination: FIERCE SPRING DENIM sums it up, i suppose. now where is that jean jacket when you need it most...
denim clearly comes in all sizes, color, textures and shapes--and you can pair them with anything! dress them up, dress them down, ripped, patchworked, shredded, dipdyed...it just never ends!
ridiculously inspirational, i hope this gives us all some ideas as to how to welcome spring BESIDES a walk down a flowery garden path.
"florals? for spring? ground-breaking."

and if you need FURTHER assurance that denim is back with a vengeance, (at least this season), barneys is in on the whole denim thing too. this time, its recycling to the rescue, as old jeans get a new lease on life, thanks to the 8 lovely designers named above.
random news alert... i got:
- a haircut
- a ridiculously amazing pair of Dolce & Gabbana tan and mirrored leather strappys. photos to come soon i promise, xx
