Do you ever feel like you're not cool enough for a fashion trend or style? I was feeling that way about the newest incarnation of the distressed jean. It just looked so cool for some reason and I really didn't think I could pull it off. However, I kept coming back to it and part of me really wanted to give it a try.
In the process of cleaning out my closet, I was getting ready to throw away this pair of old jeans. I bought them right before my freshmen year of college in the junior section at Kohls. For only $17.99, they have served me well for a long time. By now though, they had shrunk in length and starting to lose their shape. I decided to give them one last chance at life by DIYing my own pair of "cool" jeans. You know what? They did make me feel cool. It was so funny. I don't know if it's because they are on trend, I made them myself or just some mental concept that I have created. The jeans made me feel cool and I don't mind that. I probably won't get many wears out of my new cool jeans. That's ok. I am just happy that I went for it. Getting a few more wears out of something that was on it's way to the trash is fine with me.
Do you have an article of clothing that makes you feel cool? Are you nervous to try out a trend because you don't feel cool enough?
