Gab & Denim

Here's a shocker: jeans. I've been wearing the hell out of some pants lately. 
Chartreuse rayon gab, perfect pockets. They only attached at the top, so they are pouches. 
Bakelite & leather buttons, chain stitch embroidery. Yummm.

As Jaynie & I were taking these pictures, some red-faced middle aged man, who was in a car with his teenage son, hollered "hey, smile!" at us. You know, the usual catchphrase of creeps & morons on the go. But then he got stuck at the stoplight, and had to sit there uncomfortably, as we stared at him. I can only assume what faces we were making. He muttered something like "Well come on... I mean I was just... saying..." to his son. We burst into laughter once he drove away, and I basically giggled my way through these pictures. 

Hope ya'll are doing swell.

  1. Love this. Always am trying to find ways to make my jeans outfits more vintage

  2. Adorable! That jacket is fantastic!!! I have been on the hunt for the right Mexican souvenir jacket forever! Always too damn small :( One day!

  3. Perfect jean inspiration! I love my Freddies, and discovering new ways to style them is always a bonus. I think I'll have to try them with my Pendleton next... :D ♡

  4. Great outfit, I love the jacket and shoes. Sounds like the creep was nicely handled by you both as well.

  5. I love this look on you! I am totally jealous of your jacket, as I have been looking for one for aaaaaages, but the ones I find are always made of wool, and suuuuper scratchy (I HATE itchy materials, so I know I wouldn't end up wearing it). This rayon gab blend sounds perfect, and gives me hope that there is one out there for me, somewhere... :)

  6. The jeans look fab on you :) I don't own any jeans and I keep thinking I want a pair... Maybe one day! And that's so funny about the guy in the car... I bet he won't be doing that again anytime soon!

  7. Comfortable and classy all at once. I love it! :)

  8. I just found your blog, and I have immediately followed. I love your style so much!!! Not to mention, this jacket is to die for!


  9. Seriously awesome outfit! That jacket is over-the-moon cool!!! Mustard and denim is one of my favourite colour pairings ever. I was pretty much using it as my daily uniform (especially at the dog park, where delicate vintage garb is a major no-no!) last fall after I finally, at long last, found a thin mustard hued cardigan.

    You really look wonderful, dear gal!

  12. Gorgeous! Absolutely love this outfit, you look so classy girl!

  13. Looking stupendous lady!! So funny about the heckler, but love your giggling pics x

  14. Love the jeans! I have to wear jeans every day for work and it can be hard to style them in keeping with my vintage style. Also love that scarf!

  15. I love your outfit! That jacket is amazing!! x
