Happy Tuesday, ladies. Our quarantine is over just in time for gray skies and intermittent showers. I don’t mind the change in the weather because it’s too hot for comfort at home. The California fires are also ravaging the state, destroying homes and causing horrible air quality, even in my area. My husband has packed up our trailer and headed for the hills, literally.
I didn’t plan very well for this trip or pack many clothes for cooler weather. Yes, we drove, but the car was jammed with her bike, dog, etc and I knew I would be flying home so I packed light. The upshot is I’m wearing my denim jacket and this cashmere cardigan to death! I only brought three pairs of jeans, which boggles my mind because I practically live in a great pair of jeans. I see shopping in our future:)
Have you heard of a Canadian tuxedo? According to Levi Strauss & Co, the expression can be traced back to a famous incident with Bing Crosby. He and his hunting buddy were denied a room at a Vancouver, British Columbia hotel because they were wearing denim. Apparently the desk clerk didn’t think he looked high-class enough to stay there… until a bellhop finally recognized Bing. When LS&CO heard about this, they created a special denim tuxedo for Bing, and the expression was born.
I’ve always been a fan of double denim and often wear three pieces. This shirt is technically chambray but let’s not split hairs when it comes to denim:) I’ve got a nice collection of denim jackets but reach for this one more than the others because it has just enough stretch to be comfy and subtle shaping to keep it from looking boxy.
Your response to Dean Davidson’s designs has confirmed my thoughts…he is an amazing designer! Thanks to all who entered the giveaway, the winner is Jane, who will receive an email.
This is how I rock double denim…how do you wear it?
