JEANSTORIES

My quest for a pair of almost boyfriend, semi classic, straight leg, high waisted, light washed Levi's jeans took me to strange corners of the Universe. This lengthy voyage was not of a dangerous, life-threatening kind, but it did require infinite amounts of shopping energy and it did cause me a fair amount of  fashion-related stress. But, then again, all of my denim expeditions end up taking this same exact course.

Finding the right pair of jeans is emotionally, mentally, physically, digitally and spiritually so, sooo hard. 

That being said, you can only imagine how unbelievably happy I was to find and save the pair of coolness above of eternal damnation, or worse, demise. And, yes, I say "save" because these baby blue Levi's had quite a dark life before I showed them the light. Kidnapped and stacked at the bottom of a huge pile of old, tortured, lost denim souls prejudicially divided by size, the poor things had probably lost all hope of ever being tried on, or worn outside.

But then came their light. Gently going through each and every pair that was violently thrown above, I searched and searched until I found my special denim one. And here we are all sunny and happy now :).

Feel like saving a denim's life? Go to the Levi's store in downtown Skopje, and rescue a pair today!

P.S. I purchased these vintage Levi's on a massive sale for 400 денари!

    1. Thank you S! This is actually the "Monument of the liberators of Skopje" located here in the capital... I also find jeans very liberating, so it all works toward the same purpose of freedom, openness, and liberty :).

    1. Значи лудило... се надевам дека сè уште им трае тој ненормален попуст. Биди спремна да поминеш низ огрооооооомен куп фармерки, ама тотално вреди! Пиши ми ако најдеш нешто :) :*
