Knee CleavageCamille over the Rainbow // distressed-to-the-max

(Ph/Jessie – we the people)

Seen-better-days denim has always been my fail-safe fashion staple. These über-ripped jeans, however, are in a league of their own. I stumbled across them approximately 6 years ago in H&M. Back then, I was not aware of the exclusive ‘trend line’ (did it even exist?) and would ransack the whole store in search of that one hidden gem. Shame I can’t be bothered to do that anymore – only trend gets my attention nowadays. So anyway, the unexpected super-skinny fit matched with a super-high waist (they come up past my belly button) almost made me leave them behind, but my BFF of the flesh ‘n bone variety told me they were made for me. So I took ’em home. And havepracticablynot taking them off since – which is why what started off as a casual distresshas turned into full-blown,ripped-out-to-the-max knee cleavage. Yes, it’s been almost six years. So what? They say best friends forever for a reason, you know.

I’m wearing H&M distressed jeans (try here and here, and let time do the rest), a Ruby + Ed faux-fur coat, a John Lewis Weekend breton top and an ACNE shiloh clutch. The booties are Elin Kling for Marciano (similar here).
