denim and dye

yes, it's true, lately i've been falling deeper and deeper in love with both denim shirts and tie dye. i realize that combo sounds like an acid driven 60s hallucination, but how can you not love them? dillon even admitted this top pic looks awesome and he is a known hater of denim shirts! i just got one at jcrew (on wicked sale, oh yeah) and i've been wearing it every possible second, which unfortunately hasn't been enough because of this mysterious summer-like fall weather. really though, i totally know that denim on denim is generally frown upon, but WHY? if you think about it our culture treats blue jeans as a neutral... but they're blue! there's no getting around it, denim is a weird enigma and if it's immune to one rule (that blue is so not a neutral) then it should be immune to all and so called "canadian tuxedos" should be totally okay.

then there's the tie dye. seriously, there are few things more awesome looking than a rad tie dye/shibori and i've stumbled upon a few good ones lately. Upstate made this rad top for of a Kind, and Baggu has a collaboration with Shabd Alexander who also does beautiful tie dying.

sign me up for some flash and sass people, blowing all my loot on denim and silk!
