This week for Everlasting Apparel I am so happy to introduce Freya from Nishaantishu. She’s one of my favourite bloggers, currently living in one of my favourite cities (London) and all in all a really cool lady. Her blog is about finding the beauty in little things in life and just enjoying the things we have, so it’s always an uplifting read after a long and hard day. You should definitely visit as soon as possible!
I chose these jeans to be featured on Everlasting Apparel because they have been the most faithful item of clothing I have ever owned. I came across them on my last night in Hong Kong, I had been spending my summer there with my Dad and I was heading back to university in England. They were a complete impulse buy from some boutique shop in Mid-Levels, and I had shoppers remorse the next day because jeans aren’t really something I buy on impulse – the fit needs be quite specific because I’m pretty short. They have been in the “toss out” pile on more than one occasion, but they are from paper denim & cloth, so they weren’t cheap and I just couldn’t justify giving them away.
I put off wearing them for a long time, then went back to them, then packed them away in a box as I moved house, country, city, again and again. One day I just saw them in a new light, and these days they are my weekend jeans in all seasons. They’re comfy but kind of stylish and a little bit grungy when I need them to be.
They are my old faithfuls.
