Relooking: - The Denim Jacket -


I remember commenting a few weeks ago in somebody's post about denim jackets. Apparently they are the new item everyone is wearing. I don't know... what I do remember saying was that I felt it was a trend I wasn't going to apply to my own personal style. I just... I can't really explain it, but denim jackets don't seem to work on me.
I know, they look great on so many other people. As I commented before on this blog, I don't really follow trends much, so I don't think I could give you the scoop on who is wearing what and how. Something I do know about this trend, though, is that you are supposed to wear them big, washed out and vintage.
I did everything wrong, its tailored, dark and brand new. Yet, I love it.
I think the belt at the bottom makes it look a little bit like a biker's jacket, which is great. I need things like this to take the 'princess' vibe out of some of my outfits.



After a very crazy week, things are finally settling back to normal. I was exhausted and severely sleep deprived.

Its funny though, taking the stress aside, I'm amazed with my career. I love it so much it actually feels wrong to call it that. Reading for my exams, discussing the lectures... I feel like I coulnd't be any luckier. Studying philosophy... well, sometimes it feel so right it makes me feel guilty.

Es curioso, pues a veces me he quejado de lo difícil que se me hace decir aquello que en verdad quiero decir manteniendo este blog en inglés.

Quizá por eso tomé la determinación de empezar a escribir en castellano y quizá posteriormente cambiarlo.Extrañamente, ese tampoco es el método que más me ha acomodado. A veces creo que mi mente funciona en inglés y en castellano de manera inesperada, corre de un idioma a otro sin avisar y vuelve y vuelve a cambiar.

There are some things happening, right now, that have me feeling very excited. I will share a bit more in the future, but right now I'm too nervous to say them outloud.

Jimena dijo...

Thanks. I know, the zippers did it for me too.

Unfortunately I bought the jacket at a peruvian store called kidsmadehere. I'm not to crazy about their clothes, but I have to say I do believe in their denim items!

Mhmhm, sí yo también ando en las mismas con la casaca de jean. Las que hay son ceñidas y muy modernas. Estoy en busca de aquella vieja que luzca ochentera y lavada mil veces. Rachel Bilson tiene una así, posteé fotos y creo que la de ella es genial.

Estoy llevando filosofía moderna y es uno de mis cursos favoritos de este ciclo, junto con Teoría General del lenguaje.

well no matter where you got it, it's GREAT! and I know what you mean about the notebooks. They look like something an 8 year old would bring to school but it just made me happy to look at them. It should be interesting to see what the college classmates will think. haha

i agree with U and the others, this jacket is awsome, zippers made the look! wearing it with girly, flowered skirts or dresses is a great idea, U look so nice!

and You`r right - i`m philosophy student, for 2 years. :) how is it studying philosophy in peru? :) here, in poland we have 3 years licenciate and then 2 years for writing thesis and get the master degree. i really like philosophy, it changed me a bit,my point of view, way i look at the reality, i interpret all around me..thinking is changing, for the better, for more critical, in a positive meaning;)

Your denim jacket has the same cut and style of those motorcycle leather jackets, so cool! I haven't seen one of this kind yet, it's really pretty and it goes amazing with florals and other romantic and feminine garments.
