Damsel in Distressed Denim

I write this blog post with a lot of happiness in my heart. There are times when you try so hard and it takes a long time to see the result of that hard work. I can’t emphasise how much there is the right time for things to happen. Unfortunately I can’t share in detail what brings me this sort of happiness however I want to encourage anyone reading, who is putting in a lot of hard work right now and not seeing the result to hang in there. It will eventually pay off. It might not necessarily come when you want, but as far as you don’t stop striving you’ll eventually see the result…
Now on to the business of fashion ūüôā For a long time I wanted distressed jeans. I could have gone and bought one or two that I had spotted in the shops but being the most fussy person when it comes to fashion it wasn’t going to be that simple, I was searching for a combination of things, factors like the right shade of blue, the perfect amount of rip without being tacky with the all important comfort factor and most importantly the fit. I knew what I wanted in my mind and it had to be just right above all I didn’t want to spend a fortune.
One afternoon after a meeting somewhere in West London, heading back to the station, I spotted a few charity shops made my way into one of the shops. Quickly scanning the shop, there wasn’t anything that caught my attention however I was prompted to check the denim section I flicked through the rails. There it was, hanging unassumingly on the rail… the jeans that met my ridiculously high demands with brand new tags still attached. With my heart thumping fast and an overwhelming feeling of excitement, I cautiously proceeded to the changing room as I knew even though it was everything I had been looking for, it could still end up not fitting…it was perfect. After trying it on, I checked the price because at this point it didn’t matter how much it was, it was going to be mine, almost as if the fashion gods were on my side that day it was priced at ¬£5.00. I knew immediately it was meant to be.
When I bought these jeans, I already knew what I was going to wear with it and how I was going to style it. I knew the mules I picked up in the Zara sale was going to work perfectly, along with a denim studded top I purchased in a random shop in Brixton. All that remained for an opportunity to photograph the outfit. When my sister told me she purchased a professional digital camera, it was a no-brainer. She recently decided to add photography to her resume, for me this was simply the best news as she knows how to work magic and bring out the best in me whenever we work together.
I have created alternative ways of wearing this season’s distressed denim. From dungarees to regular distressed denim jeans, there are so many options available both on the High street and High end fashion.

Lastly, as I am all about shopping responsibly, here is how I styled the same outfit on a different day by simply changing the accessories, it gave the look a completely different feel.

Remember it’s not how much you shop, but how you make your purchase work for you… xxx


Fashion for me must always contain a mix of individualism, character and an element of fun... My blog is the platform at which I can engage in two of my favorite things I.e. writing and fashion
