Old Jeans

I dug out my old, DKNY silver tapered jeans that at the time were a little, ok a lot strange… but I just had to have them and over the years I have held on to them.  Several times I have wanted to get rid of them, but every time I looked at them, I thought they are cool.

It has been about 9 years, 2 babies, and a whole lot of jean styles since I wore my funky silver jeans, but it was time to give them a try again.  I was pleasantly surprised at how well they worked out.

They have a high waist, with a zipper on the side and aren’t as flattering on my rear as I’d like, so I paired them with this ‘funky lady’ shirt that is longer.  I love this shirt since the back is a bit of a surprise!  I picked up at a great local second hand store, the Wear House.  I love the colors of this shirt and it has a lot of life left.  It was a great find.

I cuffed the jeans to give them more of a summery feel and wanted to show off my rhinestone wedges.

I love how these shoes, Vera by Vera Wang, are fun with jeans or a dress.  They can add a lot of bling for little cha-ching.

When it came to the jewelry I didn’t want to go rock n’ roll since the shoes and the shirt had a lot of flare, so the pearls gave this outfit the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

My jeans don’t have pockets, so now you can see that nobody is looking at my butt!

By giving my old jeans the right shirt and accessories I was able to update these, at the time, futuristic jeans right into 2012.  I did get a lot of “ooohhh very cool” and “I like your jeans” comments from my friends and a couple of strangers.  I’m not ready to let them go yet, so I can’t wait to see what they’ll look like with boots this Fall.
