It’s probably about time I cover off on the JJ, aka the jean jacket. I’ve affectionately referred to this article of denim as such for years. Definitely a part of the LC fashion vernacular, ask any of the besties. And also ask them about my last JJ, it was Theory. Had it probably from 2000 to 2005. Wore it down to the bone, holes in the elbows and everything. But ohhhh I loved it. Yet it was best that it aged to an unwearable point as it was not such a hot number any longer. And I guess that’s why I am struggling with the JJ’s revival this Spring. Are they really hot again? Or, were they never not hot? I just know I stopped wearing mine, and started turning my nose up at those who still were. I think I am also struggling with how hard core 80’s the trend is being positioned. Don’t get me wrong, amazing decade, but also one with many a fashion faux pas. So I’m on the fence about this subject. If I’m leaning one way more than another, it’s a no go for the JJ. But, a possibility for the JV. At least I won’t have to worry about holes in the elbows. (Ralph Lauren Spring 10/DSquared Spring 10)
LC Shop-It Reco: For a dubious purchase, it’s not worth a lot of money. I might test drive this Kardashian esk vest from American Eagle.
