Day 195: Tuesday 10 November

November 10, 2009

It’s a beautiful early morning. Still, clean, clear, sunny.

I wish I was going to the beach rather than work, because of course then I could wear my denim bikini rather than the full length office attire warm-enough-to-stop-frostbite-in-the-chill-of-air-conditioning outfit that I AM wearing.

Let me make a pre-emptive apology this morning to my work colleagues.

My apologies if you happen to catch a glimpse of my coin slot, or as I like to call it, the crack of intellect.

Today’s jeans ride low and the t-shirt tides a bit high. There could be glimpses and I don’t mean of the ocean. So sorry in advance, but what’s a girl to do? There are rules to this denim thing and I’m simply following them.

Top: Not worn for a while Ladakh pin striped jacket. I just noticed there’s a staple keeping the label on. Classy

Bottom: Sportsgirl denim snugfit low riders. Crack alert

Accessory: Denim shoulder bag with fluoro decals, carrying my tax




Day 85: Thursday 23 July

July 23, 2009

Yesterday’s lady denim wear is today turned on it’s head for a more street smarts casual look, with possibly a little more muffin than the kiddies would like to see. But what to do? Lose weight? Buy bigger clothes? Seems a bit extreme to me. Although I am a little concerned that at work today there will be a little more crack action than is probably appropriate, and i don’t mean the drug. So here I am, muffin ‘n all.

Top: Brand new op-shop purchase Ladahk pin striped collarless denim jacket. It screams Now! Now! Now!

Bottom: Another brnd new charity shop buy, ‘Made for Sportsgirl’ denim capri-like so tight I can barely sit, zips-up-the-ankle jeans. They have bonus dark denim insets

Accessory 1: Never before seen here denim slip-on sneakers. Not sure how easy they are to walk in. I’ll let you all know later

Accessory 2: Denim shoulder bag, just hidden by arm, but used frequently by me

Here are those sneakers…

Super casual end to a super casual look

Day 16: Friday 15 May

May 15, 2009

The lower and more private parts of my body are still recovering from the hours I spent yesterday sealed inside those ‘Wakee’ jeans. I had a pain in my muffin, alongside other parts, that is only now, after a good nights rest, showing signs of revcovery.

The dangers of wearing tight jeans are REAL! See today’s accessories pic if you don’t believe me.

Other news is that today a photographer from the local newspaper (and I DO mean local) is coming to take a snap of me. For some reason my Year of Denim has struck a chord in the local community’s media outlet. So as you can see I have been extra careful in regards to today’s outfit. I have gone for a serious yet frivolous fashion combination…

The evils of too-tight jeans are still with me

Top: Marcs jacket with silvery sheen through it

Bottom: Equinox denim knickerbockers

Accessory: cute denim cap sent all the way down from Cairns (thanks Soo!)

And yes I am clutching my side-muffin in pain. Those jeans from yesterday inspired me to dig through my record collection to rediscover the album I am clutching – Hard Knocks. This Hammond label vinyl beauty deftly shows what wearing tight jeans does to a girl… turns them into a sharpie!!  Be warned! Romper Stomper fashions are imminent on this blog!

The other record in this photo, Bumper, also features denim styles. It’s more of your 70s disco hits, while Hard Knocks focuses on Aussie rockin’ standards by The Angels, Billy Thorpe and that hard core sharpie band Sherbet.

New denim cap fits just right, while Hard Knocks reveals the depths to which a girl will sink to wearing too tight denim will force agirl

New denim cap fits just so, while Hard Knocks shows how low a girl will sink wearing too tight denim... knife carrying and ice skates

Day 2: May Day 2009

April 30, 2009

To the Workers of the World… 
good luck, that’s all I’ll say about the state of world economics.
Oh and join your local/ relevant union.

I am doing my bit by actually working today!
And wearing that old fav’ of world wide workers…. DENIM!

Top: Benetton denim jacket
Bottom: pin stripe denim jeans with a turn-up ( I work in a office so I thought they would look serious)
Accesory 1: Denim bag (being a sleepy head at 5.45am when I took the photo I forgot to hold my sweet denim shoulder bag)
Other accessories: I won’t list them, but will save them for a more desperate denim day


May Day... Denim pin stripes give a business like aspect to the outfit.
