It’s Friday! The laziest day of the work week.
Who wants to think about putting on more than one item of clothing on a Friday? No one. Unless you’re a guy.
That’s why today, I settled on my favourite hybrid that is, the Denim Onsie. Cool enough to work with the warm Spring sun, long sleeves to combat the still slightly icy wind and to top it off, it’s DENIM.
So with the challenge of working out my wardrobe well accomplished, I am now faced with another more pressing natter. Going to the bathroom.

It’s no word of a lie that the majority of my wardrobe is black, grey and white. Why? I’m not really sure, perhaps it was all the horrible colour choices I made in the 90’s and early 00’s. However, I do make a couple of exceptions to the colour rule, special occasions and denim.
With that in mind, here we are at day 2 of 5, featuring the newest addition to my denim family, the Zara Basic Dept Z1975 light washed jean. As with most of my denim companions, they didn’t last long before I got stuck into them with my dressmaking scissors.
Over the past few years I’ve developed a weird aversion to wearing unripped denim. I instinctively feel the need to ruin them immediately, almost like a right of passage, or a battle wound that they can brag about to their other denim counterparts. It’s the same sort of feeling you get with new shoes, I just want to run around in the dirt and make them look old.
You’d think after 13 pairs of jeans I would have a strategy, a special technique I could perhaps share with you? Sure, It’s a 3 step process really. Get your notebooks out, you’re going to want to write this down…
1) Pick a random spot, cut into it with my scissors
2) Rip open with hands (strangely satisfying)
3) Hope that I haven’t just ruined my brand new pair of jeans.
What can I say, I live on the edge.
No regrets. Mostly.
