Dressing Up Denim


Putting away the color combos for a minute, I decided to dabble in dressing-up some denim, seeking to create some classic but casual style. Mind you, other than jeans, I do not have any denim pieces and frankly I never gravitate towards such items. So taking it slow, I invested in a timeless denim top, for my first attempt. Still wanting some statement color, I reserved a pop of red for the lips and paired my new, dark-wash, button-up with my favorite, black, pocket skirt. For a vintage touch, I added a Carmel-colored, envelope, purse that can be carried cross-body as well as toted around via handle. I found this darling discovery at Black & Brown, a Downtown San Jose thrift boutique I recently explored for the first time. Locally owned, its selection of vintage to modern is well picked and sorted, making it easy to shop at great pre-loved prices. Stop by sometime!
