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.
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.
