For awhile now
I’ve been looking for a knee-length destroyed denim skirt with a little ‘edge.’
Enter this Free People skirt in “Garage Wash.”
It kinda looks like I single-handedly tuned-up a car while wearing it,
and spilled some grease and battery acid on it in the process!
It’s serioulsy trashed…and even dirty looking…
and despite my alleged common sense,
in a dauntingly weird way,
I actually like it.
I’ve been needing something ‘casual’ to tuck my shorter shirts into,
like these embroidered beauties by BIYA,
a sister company of another favorite brand, Johnny Was.
I’ve been wanting something I could wear with bare (envision tanner) legs
and perhaps even shoes, when that pesky 5th metatarsal heals.
I used to think that if my denim had holes in it,
it was me who should have made those holes,
So call me crazy/punky/gross/weird/too old/grungy/stoopid…
but now I’m thinking that successfully destroyed fabric is a bit of an art.
I don’t know why or when or how destroyed denim has become so cool,
but I do believe that I have officially been suckered into its steely jaws.
