Doffy in Distress


I've been searching for the perfect distressed boyfriend jeans for the last while and finally found a decent pair over the weekend. This discovery occurred during yet another guilt-ridden shopping binge with my blogger pal from Keeping Up With Jasmeen. Every time I make the mistake of shopping with this girl, I walk into the mall empty-handed and walk out with several large, overly-stuffed bags. We are just the worst influences on each other! Nevertheless, I will justify my indulgence on that fact that it's nearly final exam season and a gal needs a good dose of retail therapy to help her through. 

Shopaholics always have a ready excuse for their sins.

Speaking of distressed, I think it's about time that I throw out this satchel bag that I bought from an end of season sale at The Bay. While I originally thought it was a total steal from its reduced price tag, I soon discovered that the quality of this crossbody bag was seriously lacking. After the second day, the inside lining had already ripped out and the underlying backing made out of cardboard was exposed. Talk about shoddy work! 

Anywho, hope that y'all have a fabulous week and try not to let the weird transitional weather or the thought of final exams get you down!

  4. I love the look of distressed & ripped jeans! I have a fav pair of my own & I have yet to fit back into them, darn diet ;P The rips on the knees & fitting on u are perfect! And speaking of shoddy bags… I've had 1 or 2 experiences with them as well with the leather wearing out ever so quickly & the lining inside ripping apart. It's such a shame & foul designing but at least on the bright side, they aren't expensive! If this happened with name brand bags, I would be so pissed haha & back to the store I go!

  5. One of my friends and I have the same relationship: we've forbidden ourselves from shopping together in the hopes of cutting down. But I don't blame you for getting these jeans: what a great relaxed fit (and not too holey either, I dislike tooo much distressing).
