For a long period of time — 1988-2007 — I didn’t really wear jeans.* But I’ve always worn a lot of denim.
Every wardrobe should include: a denim shirt, a denim skirt, a denim jacket, and a denim dress. It’s not crazy to have two denim dresses. Or two denim jackets.
Behold the clever denim dress — have just remembered that I own three — for summer. Sleeveless, mid-weight, with a dip-bleached hem.
This color blocked hem ought to make me look stumpy, but it doesn’t. Perhaps the platform sandals are helping. Perhaps my pale legs, indistinguishable from bleached cloth, are creating a long look.
I feel like one ought to be able to make a dress like this at home, by dipping a denim dress in a bucket of bleach. Very carefully. In the driveway. Do you think that would work?
The most devoted among you (or those with the best memories) may remember that I showed this dress long ago in one of my earliest posts.
I think it looks better with these platform sandals than it looked with my flat sandals, even though both pairs are very cool.
Also, take note of my remarkably consistent haircut.
Whilst The Photographer adjusted his settings, I struck a serious of ridiculous poses. The things I do to entertain him!

* It took the convergence of two major events — the advent of low-rise pants AND the resurrection of stretch denim — to win me over. Low-rise + stretch = comfortable jeans.
