sometimes when i see something i want online or in magazines there's such a strong attraction that i feel i must have the item immediately. i covet it. it's not always possible to have these items due to cost or availability. that 's when i head to the thrift or vintage store to try and find something similar. sometimes it's uncertainty that keeps me from a purchase. i have gotten a few things online that were too big or didn't suit me so when i saw the current/elliot jean launch i was weary to pre-order. i loved the jeans but what if they weren't flattering on me?, everything looks good on models. i decided to wait until nyc when i could try them on but until then i thought i'd model an old pair of marc by marcs after the current/elliot boyfriend jean rachel bilson is sporting. they aren't as distressed but i sanded them to death with a sanding block so hopefully in a few washes they'll be as destroyed as these.
