Rumor Has It

I heard a rumor the other day that printed denim is the new colored denim. The rumor was actually started by me because I bought these pants and I didn’t want my collection of colored jeans to feel jealous. Actually I don’t really think they are the new colored jeans, but I do think they are a distant cousin to them that’s just new in town and wants to be given a chance.

This post is going to weird places a lot quicker than I had anticipated. And sadly I have nothing else to save it. Printed denim for spring, that is all.

    Oh, Kendi. I believe you. This printed denim stuff both excites me and worries me, because I currently have every color of denim imaginable (except pastel orange and mint), but I only have 1 pair of graphic pants. Ikat pants. I've been searching for polka dot pants, but haven't found a pair I like yet. So thanks for warning me about this new trend. I'll keep an eye out next time I go shopping. Investing in printed denim might be wiser than colored denim now.
