I love denim. I have a line of jeans, shorts, and jackets. I wear them with tee shirts, sweat shirts, blazers, silk blouses, and cashmere sweaters.
Some are old enough to vote. Some are even old enough to hold office. Many show tender signs of age which I love, but none looks like this.
None look like a psychopath had viciously attacked them with scissors and machetes to make them look old and worn. This is not the way denim ages. This is contrived and labor intensive. It makes no sense. The cuts are wrong. The length is wrong. What are those long panels in the back?
AND they are priced at $405.
Even worse the look is not new, trendy, or innovative.
I wrote a post in December, 2009 with a picture of Ashley Tisdale walking her dog. I asked:
Is this dog walker a pathetic soul with irretrievably bad hair who dug her clothes and boots out of a Goodwill reject bag so that she could afford to buy dog food?
Is this someone who alerted the paparazzi that she was going to be walking a dog while she was dressed in trendy garments and expensive tresses that cost more than many people’s mortgage?
Imagine spending over $400 on an ugly garment only to find it was trendy seven years ago and now it is just pathetic.
