Visible Monday: Red Denim Salvation
Ack! Look what happened to my white jeans:
That is rust. Or blood. Let’s go with rust. It’s also on the other hip and the markings will not wash out. With autumn a whisper away and most of my pants now too large, I need these jeans. There was only one thing to do: dye ’em, stove-top style:
They turned out well as it’s kind of hard to screw up dying white cotton, but I wonder how quickly the dye will fade. I don’t know that I need pink jeans in my wardrobe.
With the red bottoms I took it easy on top with a navy tiered Target tee (every woman I know owns one of these and I have three myself) and my old faithful Gap denim jacket.
I topped the look off with my delightful ma zhong earrings and these great animal print loafers from Target. Again with the Target.
When I was much younger I owned a pair of red sweatpants. Whenever I wore them, someone I knew would say “Her ass looks like the broad side of a barn.” This was always said after I was ordered to walk by and to whoever was in the room at the time.
Today I wear red denim in appreciation of my spirit and ass, both of which persevered despite the weight they carried.
I hope you are proud and strong today, feeling good in your Visible Self. Connecting with Patti at Not Dead Yet Style. Happy Monday!
