Orange sheen








(Vintage shirt, Current/Elliot ripped jeans, Jeffrey Campbell shoes, Gucci purse, scarf from Indonesia)

I had previously dismissed all the Hollywood hoopla surrounding Current/Elliot until I finally tried them on last weekend...and found myself in jeans heaven! They fit me well and felt great, but I love the strategically placed rips most of all.  I may have jumped onto the ripped/thrashed jeans bandwagon a little late, but I'm definitely going to make up for lost time!

I also had fun playing around with my orange scarf, which I unearthed from the bottom of my scarf basket. I love how its golden threads give off that pretty glowing sheen in the sunlight. I remember haggling over that scarf with a street vendor in Bali last summer, and giving in almost immediately--it was just too beautiful! I also bought one in yellow for my mom and we wore them that same night out to dinner at Ku De Ta. Thinking of that summer in Indonesia makes me long for warm weather in Los Angeles...

I love Current Elliot Jeans. You should check out Leyendecker's new ripped leggings. They have a similar look.
