denim up

    Those were the days…dark rinse or nothing. The variety of denim today is amazing…there is surely one out that is perfect just for you. When I was in school in the dark ages, girls wore skirts or dresses only. I had a red pair of clogs that I wore when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter in 1972. Times flies… xoxo

      it’s absolutely crazy how far we’ve come with denim. not only do we have different rinses, but a variety of fits to please just about anyone out there.

    Button fly levi’s — still the best pair of jeans ever created. I worm mine until they literally fell apart. Thanks for the memories.

  3. Shakes fist at Beth! Cutest dress ever, used your link and went and bought it immediately. Sighhh…at least you HAD the link. lol

    I definitely remember bleaching jeans to get them lighter. I was good at it. I’m about 5 years older than you and I also remember making cutoff jean shorts to let the hem get frayed–now I have a pair of jeans that were sold that way, and I love ’em.

    This is very cute on you–I have a denim dress, (I think it’s actually a Talbots) but it’s definitely a darker wash–I may have to keep laundering it or maybe I’ll try getting out the bleach to get it faded. It’s a great look! The shirt-tail hem is fun!

      i loved how we used to repurpose our jeans into cutoffs for summer. love how your son urged you to just write a check! mine used to tell me to charge it! gotta love ’em.

    Oh, thanks for that trip down memory lane. I always tell my kids that we wore out own jeans out–they didn’t come that way! Haha. I never tried the bleach trick! Take care!
