Acid Wash | Joe's Jeans Acid Tie-Dye + Tailored Vest


If I were to wear jeans, I almost prefer if they're colored or have some sort of print in them. I find myself rarely wearing plain denim jeans. Plain denim almost equates to sweats for me. I don't know why, but recently if I were to wear pants, they need to have something on them.

I do remember when I first bought my first non plain denim jeans. They were my pink ones that I bought from Zara. It was loud and bright. When I first grabbed them, I wasn't sure how I was going to wear them. But they ended up becoming one of my favorite pairs. Let's just say they were my gateway pants to printed bottoms.

So when I saw these pants, I knew I had to get them. They're tie-dye acid wash jeans! I mean two-in-one awesome-ness. They're very 90's and early 2000. Sometimes, I think part of me is still stuck in the 90's with how I've been dressing lately. The more I learn and discover my style, the more I realize that the 90's is my favorite fashion era. I tend to gravitate to grungy and edgy looks for my weekend wear.

For statement bottoms like these, you can't go wrong it keeping it simple on your top half. I wanted my pants to be the focus in my outfit, so I just wore a white top and the black tailored vest (or sleveless blazer).

Sorry that I don't know what my bag is called. I bought the bag randomly while I was in NYC last year at this store called PayHalf (in the Financial District). It didn't have any label and I merely got it because it was fringe :D.
