dream of the ’90s…


A feeling recently came over me. A feeling that I haven’t had since the ’90s and thought I’d never have again. That feeling was the need for a denim shirt. I’d been seeing them all over blogs and knew one had to be mine.

I started scouring thrift stores thinking this would be an easy undertaking. But I’m picky, so it wasn’t. It couldn’t be too stiff, too loose or too tight, not too long, but not short, and definitely no rhinestones or embroidered company logos.

Well, I finally found the perfect denim shirt for me, not among thrift store racks but at Forever 21. It’s soft, comfy & lightweight, with a little western flair.

Brian isn’t a fan of the denim shirt. Wearing it everyday of the three day weekend didn’t help like I thought it would either… by day 3 I had just earned the nickname “Jay Leno”. Don’t know why? Do an image search of Jay Leno. I can already tell this is going to be a spring staple, so he’ll have plenty of time for it to grow on him. :)

    Awe, I do like your new denim shirt! I love denim.

    Oh, and when I say the title of this post, I thought it was Portlandia related, haha!

    Hope you’re having a great week! ;D

      I got the title from Portlandia! Since the shirt reminds me of the ’90s and I spend the ’90s living in Oregon it seemed fitting :)

    Haha…Jay Leno…too funny. I doubt Jay looks so fabulous in tights but I don’t know him personally…so that would be an assumption! :p The circus brooch is pretty darn adorable too!

    i love the shirt! it’s really cute on you.

    i have trouble at thrift stores because many of the items seem to fit me so poorly, or just be way too worn or way too stiff and awkward to me. it’s hard to find something i like.
