To Die For Denim – Tie Dye

Having lived through the 70s who would have thought that my favourite to die for denim would be a pair of tie dye ones that I created myself? Perhaps I like them so much because they were created by me. Or because they are one of a kind. Or maybe even because they are just fun.

Tie Dye Denim: Early in 2012 when skinny jeans were becoming the jean to have I bought a pair of really full on turquoise ones that were comfortable, but just a little too bright for me. All the cool floral prints hadn’t come out yet and I had seen one photo online of Isabel Marant’s tie dye version. Well, goodness knows a woman of my age has done tie dye before so of to the store for some bleach and my turquoise skinny jeans became “oh so cool”. You can see that DIY here.

To Die for Denim: You would think that the tie dye would be a bit full on but it actually tamed down these pants and added a little more fun to them. I think the summer sweater with the cut out shoulders, my wedge runners and coach bag make a great weekend to die for look.

Accents and Accessories: I stuck with the turquoise theme of the day by wearing a gold and turquoise owl necklace that used to be my mum’s in the 70s. Huge gold earrings add to the 70s vibe and then I mixed some gold and turquoise bracelets and bangles to stack on the arm candy.

I’m thinking of wearing these jeans and the wedges with a white t-shirt and beige jacket one night during the L’Oreal Fashion Festival. I think they deserve a run out in the fashion public.

What do you think of my to die for denim? Is tie dye too much?
