I already loved Janet's denim-on-denim look, then I got into Pinterest - such a fun and creative way to avoid my to-do list - and saw this slightly different look on Katie Holmes.
Last week, on my way home from work, I stopped off at my favorite thrift shop and found this denim shirt on sale for $1.99.
I knew my jean get up needed some color so I wore cognac booties by Tsubo, a brown belt and a colorful scarf Bliss generously gave me several months ago.
I tied it so that the vibrant orange showed the most, à la Katie Holmes.
Another look I've been wanting to try is a denim shirt is with white jeans. I found this cute outfit on Pinterest, too.

I wore my trusty white jeans from Banana Republic, black Calvin Klein pumps, black and silver belt...
and a big chain link choker by Ralph Lauren I bought many moons ago and never wear. I really can't remember ever wearing it and I've had it probably nine years. I want to wear it more often; I am liking the big, chunky look these days. My only complaint about it the way the links don't all lay horizontally.
Now that I've tried the denim-on-denim look, I've decided I like it. Have you ever worn a denim shirt with jeans?
My $1.99 shirt is just okay, certainly not bad for the price, but I would prefer one more fitted. It must be rather old as the shoulders are cut too wide and it's not tapered at all. I'm thinking it's from the early 90's when the grungy, baggy look was all the rage.
Through this experience, I've discovered another great reason to thrift: I can test-drive styles and fashions that interest me without making a big financial commitment. Now that I know I like denim shirts, I can start looking for a more modern one.
Something like this would be nice....

too bad it's 100 times more than what I paid for mine. Yikes!
Do you wear denim with denim?
Have you ever used thrift store finds to experiment with style?
