Denim jackets..."Don't call it a comeback"!

It's that time again... 
Every few years or so, the Denim jacket rears its head, towering above the list of fashion - dare I say it - 'trends'.  Nearly every fashion manufacturer on the planet with a showing machine makes some version of it.  Some of my favorites can be found at Ralph Lauren, Madewell and J. Crew and Old Navy.  Of course there are higher price point manufacturers with their own interpretations as well.  But I really dig the simple approach for these bad boys.

Best thing about it, is it's totally practical and can be dressed ^ or down.  My favorite part is how it can be customized, with the addition of decorative elements like fringe, beads or bleach!

Vogue Magazine, had declared "the return of the Denim Jacket".  Everybody has one.  Where is yours? and how do you wear it?

Getting high...

I love a great stairway.  I adore the approach.  I find the journey mysterious and inviting.  As though I am reading a great book, and cannot wait to get to the very last page.  Often stopping along the way to caress the one hundred year old carved wood handrails, the hand forged metal or the painted wood when I am only halfway there. 

Ascending a stairway is akin to opening a box of chocolates... "you never know what you're going to get".
