bluejeans

I know I already posted today, but for me to get my mind off other things, I decided to blog again. I was cleaning up my closet and noticed that I have like mad jeans! I think I have more jeans then most. Why haven't I thrown away these old things? They hold so much memories for me, I just can't let it go.

UrBan JeAn ErA


I wore these jeans in High School. I remember I was really big into TLC that all I wanted to do was wear baggy clothes. I always wore like the big shirts with the weird designs on them. I just wanted to stand out. I guess because I was so short I needed something to bring attention to myself. Wearing urban clothes was a way for me to fit in and look cool, especially in the Hood. I was in art class and I had a whole bunch of pens in the big pocket on the leg. They broke inside, and ink was all over it. So what I did was cut the pocket off, and attached it to the front of a shirt, and put like buttons where the left-over pocket was. It looked cool and creative, and I swore I was fly! I used to be really creative with my clothes back then.

BaNgBaNg JeAn ErA

These jeans were a summer fling back in my college days. I was dating this guy named Tyquan. He was a designer and a upcoming singer. He was the first guy I dated that was shorter then me. That was so hot! I think that was when I really got the feeling of acting like I was a top since everyone tried me to make me into there bottom, lol. There was this store called BangBang that had reeeeaaallllyyy gay clothes. But they was in at the time. These jeans were so cheap, like 20 bucks. They was really tight around the azz and legs and then flared out at the bottom. Very 70's now that I think about it. Man I was so gay in these jeans, but I was ok with it. I do remember trying to convince my mom that the jeans was manly, but she kept calling them girly jeans. She had to know I was gay then! I wore them out in the Village in NYC. I wore then with a white tanktop or with no shirt on. It was hot how many looks I got. Tyquan really turned me out, lol. But he was worse! I tried to bring them back, but Fuzzy won't let me!

Old NaVy JeAn ErA



So after I got all the gay out of me (lol, yeah right), I went to regular jeans. This was like around my senior year in college. I was all about being affordable and practical! I was working at a Summer Camp at the time, and I just needed something I could go to work, but would still look good if I went out on the weekends. I wore the hell out of these jeans. They were very comfortable. I was a big Old Navy fan for awhile. It was stylish and affordable. I still go in there from time to time, but nothing has peacked my interest lately.

H&M JeAn ErA



That's until H&M came around! I love love love H&M! It is the gayest store ever! But the styles are so fly! I just recently bought these jeans. They are a little lowrise, a little fitting, but has some baggy-ness to it. Yet not as gay as the Bang Bang Ones. I can rock these to work, or out on the town. I can wear them with my urban clothes or my gay clothes, and that is what jeans should do. They was expensive though but I guess I'm really focused more on buying jeans that will last... knowing me, these will still be in my jean collection years from now!

I love the nostalgic flashback into fashion!!! And i'm definitely FEELING YOU about H&M...i visited one the first time i traveled to New York, and acted a straight up FOOL in that store. I dropped almost $500.00...you can imagine how ridiculous I looked with all them damn bags wearing a Kool-Aid smile and my freshly purchased Prada knockoff shades!

Yes for H&M, and YES FOR SHAWN!!!
