worn / bleached acid wash
i know, i know… acid wash jeans. they’re right up there with over-sprayed, poofy bangs and fanny packs. but honestly, i’ve never met a 90’s trend that my older (obviously not wiser self) didn’t want to re-try. for example, today i’m wearing pants that give me major mom butt. tomorrow? i may show up with crimped hair.
to be honest, these pants were a very unnecessary purchase. they were on mega sale at the gap for like, $15 and i couldn’t resist. i don’t need acid wash jeans. does anyone? but i thought it would be a fun addition to my wardrobe. what i didn’t count on was how difficult it would be to style these things! white didn’t look good, grey looked a bit odd and hot pink was almost too literal – acid wash and neon? how saved by the bell of me.
so here we are. black. it’s usually a safe bet.
in hindsight, if i were to make a legit, premeditated acid wash purchase, i would choose a darker wash. i imagine it’s easier to style.
i’d like to apologize in advance – you will be seeing these booties a lot.
