Thursday Thrift Style: Denim, Part IV

So you may have asked yourself this past Sunday, "Why didn't she just over-dye that striped denim jacket to make it darker instead of wrestling with bleach?" Well, there were a couple reasons. First, I wasn't sure if dying it would actually even out the stripes or just make them dark stripes on a medium background, which wouldn't have been an improvement in my opinion. Secondly, I didn't need a dark denim jacket because I already had this one!

I found this in my favorite thrift shop, Thrift City in Richardson, Texas for... $5 tops. I've had it a couple years now, and I love it.

I just wish I could wear it more, but I hesitate to pair a denim jacket with blue jeans. Awkward!


  1. Denim on denim ... that's a Canadian tuxedo!

    (Strange thing - if you google "wikipedia Canadian tuxedo" one of the first results is the definition of "faux pas" on wikipedia ... But if you go to that entry, there is no mention of Canadian tuxedo. What the what? But apparently denim on denim is supposed to be a faux pas ... however, I say, whatever people like, people should wear.)

    This is a pretty disjointed comment, sorry! I hope you follow.

    1. I had heard that called a Canadian tuxedo before, but I didn't want to offend. I personally am not a fan of denim on denim, but as you say, everyone should wear whatever they want!

    2. Meh. I'm Canadian, so I can offend us with impunity :)
