Denim on Denim on Denim

There’s something about wearing too much of one thing that I find very appealing. Some matchy-matchy stuff drives me nuts, but when it comes to clothing, I tend to believe that more is more. A leopard vest with leopard shoes? Yep. A butterfly purse to match a butterfly shirt? Duh. Two floral prints at once? Obviously. Heart-shaped glasses and a heart-pattern dress? Is there any other way to wear such an outfit? I mean, if you’re going to do it, you may as well do it.

Each time I wear something with over-the-top matching, there’s a part of me that can see Miranda Priestly from The Devil Wears Prada giving me a withering look. I can hear her sighing with sarcasm dripping from each word, “You paired a daisy headband with a daisy dress. Groundbreaking.” But that’s the genius behind it. Matching accessories and garments in such a literal, kitschy way is so wrong, so decidedly un-clever, that it becomes right.

I was super-excited to jump on the ‘Canadian Tuxedo’ bandwagon by combining my denim top with a denim skirt and denim shoes. My only question was where to wear my all-denim getup to. A night out with some of my blogger friends to celebrate the launch of a new Jord wooden watch series provided the perfect opportunity. I can always count on my girls to take and appreciate fashion risks. “Dope outfit!” one remarked. Take that, Miranda.
The unique collar was one of the reasons I bought the denim top.

Budding photographer Ruby took this shot. It's not half bad!
