Happy Monday – I hope you all had a great weekend! I know I mentioned this on Instagram last night, but this weekend was a busy one for me. I played softball, worked on a couple of blog-related projects, had dinner at my friend’s house and attended a bridal shower. I also had the chance to meet my friend’s 9-week-old lab puppy, Buddy. As you can imagine, he was ridiculously adorable, so I wanted to take him home with me! It’s okay though, my two little guys are cute, too.
Can we just take a second to admire the fact that I’m wearing legitimate vintage Levis denim? Yes – vintage Levis, as in…used! I’d love to tell you that they were thrifted by yours truly, but they’re not. These jeans are from one of my favourite local brands, preloved. When I found out that my friends at preloved had started to carry vintage denim, I knew I had to get my hands (err… bum) in a pair. I always envy the people who can go into a thrift store and come out with gems, but I seem to lack that skill. Not only does the preloved team have an eye for thrift-worthy pieces, but considering a majority of their line is made up of reclaimed vintage fabrics, vintage Levis denim is right in their wheel house.
I paired my vintage Levis with a flow-y top and platform heels for a girly, modern vibe, but you could take the vintage theme one step further and pair them with a crop top and funky sneakers. You can also embrace your inner 90’s chick, by wearing a distressed tee with your denim and tying a flannel shirt around your waist. At the end of the day, it’s denim, so the options are endless!
The only word of caution I have is to take a look at the sizing chart before you place an order. Vintage denim fits much smaller than modern denim, so you will have to go up a few sizes. I guess vanity sizing is a product of the 21st century?
I’m also excited to share an exclusive deal with you! From Monday June 13 to Monday June 20, you can get 40% on getpreloved.com, using the code JACKIE40.
