Denim on Denim

Tuesday, June 08, 2010
I was a little skeptical about blue denim together but now I know if done right (like me, obvi) it's awesome. This was inspired by Erin....because she's awesome.

So no bruises today but I still feel like I just had a nose job... Like my face needed to be any flatter!

  1. I love this look! I wore denim on denim earlier this week... I think the look done right can look great!

  2. i love it- i know i could never pull off denim-on-denim, but you look great, as always (:

  3. Those wedges look great! They look like Gladiator sandals. I still have to buy myself a pair.
    What Not to Wear actually didn't like denim on denim. I sure do disagree! It can be cool if you do it right.

  4. It's almost workman-inspired, I like it! I think you pulled it off nicely. :) The blue of the pool matches, but I was afraid you'd fall off when I saw the picture!

    As for jet lag... yes, it IS quite annoying. At least it lets me sleep relatively early since I'm so dead tired by then...

  11. Oooo you did it so right. I love this look on you. If the shoes were red it would be a perfect 4th of July outfit.

  12. I think you pulled this off quite nicely. Not everyone can do it, but you have successfully executed it.

  14. i like the d.o.d. (as a friend of mine used to call denim on denim), especially with this shirt (which if you ever get sick of, PLEASE send my way!!).

    ReplyDelete
  15. It looks great--not cowboy-ish at all! But something about you looks different. Different make-up??? Maybe it's the time in the pool. =)

  20. great pictures , glad you didnt slip in the pool .. love the all denim and those were great shoes to wear with it

  21. I've been thinking about rocking the D-on-D, so I've been hunting for the perfect top. I think one of the keys is skinnies. I really think it looks best with fitted bottoms.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I think you carry off the denim on denim look perfectly! And ouch! I'm glad you don't have any face bruises.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow this looks amazing! I'm loving the denim on denim look, especially since it's two different shades of blue!

    ReplyDelete
  24. looks really good, way to go!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think this is about the only way double denim works - it has to be different shades of blue. Looks lovely on you :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. You look fab! I think what makes this so successful (apart from getting 2 different shades of denim to match) is the modern cut of the jeans and shirt paired with some kicka$$ shoes. I'm taking stock of all the lovely style bloggers doing the d.o.d (to steal from Tania's comment) to possibly venture into that realm myself.

  27. I never thought I would like a denim on denim look, but you totally did it!

    ReplyDelete
  28. i just love this 'controversial' denim on denim look!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I haven't yet tried the denim on denim - I still have a mental block in re to it. But every time I see it on someone (like you), it looks really stylish. Maybe I just need the right top.

    ReplyDelete
  34. WB! It looks really good on you. I'm still not brave enough to do the denim on denim thing, though!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I don't think everyone can pull off a double-denim look Elaine, but you sure did!

  38. very good combination.
    One lighter than the other so it doesn't really look like you're wearing just one denim piece.
