Oh, stonewash denim. How I freakin’-love-thee.
I know what you’re probably thinking right now. “Stonewash denim?! Are you seriously wearing that crap jeans wash from the 90s, Sammy?!!?”
Yeah, I am. And guess what? By the looks of this pair of stonewash denim jeans at Forever 21 … you probably will [or already are] soon. ‘Nuff said.
I wore this get-up to a fashion show with good friend and fellow Temple alumna, Ciara Walker. We checked out the show for business reasons. Ciara & I are co-producing a fashion show for the soon-to-happen-fabulous-25th-birthday-fundraiser-90s-themed-bash, The Fresh Prince of New York. Who’s birthday/fundraiser/90s-extravaganza is this? Why, the amazing Derrick Sabater’s! [click for VIDEO!]
But besides all that, the fashion show was crap [but NOT like my stonewash denim, dangit!], and we decided not to go with the troupe we were checking out on the fashion show scene.
Modeling troupe successful? Na.
Stonewash denim successful? Absolutely!

THE BEADED BELT: This was actually a necklace, obtained from Sammy D Sunshine Cleaning. Didn’t dig it as a necklace, but really dug it as a belt, because it’s black/gold beads were just what I needed to pull together the gold & black jacket with the bracelet.
