Two things immediately come to mind as I sit down to write this post: The first is that today is September 20, one of the last days of summer, so technically, white is right. The second, as many of you have asked me whether or not the distressed look for denim remains steadfast and true, the answer is yes… the distressed look continues to show up on all the runways from all your favorite denim designers. I am squeezing the life out of my white ones by Citizens of Humanity until the weather changes.
Make no mistake, wearing these white distressed jeans is not something that I would currently be doing on the East Coast. For one thing, East Coasters tend to dress for fall no matter the temperature, while West Coast fashionistas continue to wear white after Labor Day and beyond. I consider myself a bi-coastal fashionista! As the temperatures drop, I will continue to wear my white jeans here in LA and add a chunky sweater and booties to the mix.
The moral of the story is: don’t stress over white, and do-(di)stress your jeans.

Love this dress. Where can I get it?
When I went on Obakki’s website, I saw that it is no longer available, however they have a lot of beautiful dresses on their website. I got mine at Yellow Dog in the Glen Centre. Beverly Glen and Muholland. I will be on the lookout for you. It is a great label!
