No Jeans Today!

Jeans. Yes, we love them in all their baggy, faded, upcycled, refashioned, protective glory. But today, we need a change. Give us layers and layers of Jane’s Vanity, in swaths of silk and boudoir colors. Then, off we go to the grocery store.

A refresh on the daily wardrobe is good for the soul. And will receive approval at our own boho grocery store, where fashion is an indoor, no-holds-barred sport. Both the clientele and employees, with their tie-dye buzz cuts, etc., could easily be walking the more avant-garde fashion runways of Paris. 

Today, we begin with the black trousers from Christine Vancouver’s Luxe Crepe Silk Lounge Set. The heavy weight of their 30 momme silk gives them a nice sway. And we like the pockets. Next, it's our favorite shapely top from Emma Harris’s Celeste Raspberry Camisole Set. We’ll add a few chains to match the gold lace appliqés, then finish up with the matching kimono-style Celeste Raspberry Silk Robe with its own chevrons of gold lace. Our market basket will be Elisabeth Weinstock’s Sydney Natural Weekender Tote. 

Or sometimes we need the enveloping quality of a long skirt. Let it be Zoelle’s Malachite Butterfly Wrap Skirt in a pairing of two chiffon prints, both pleated. The colorful designs, in shades of blue, green, orange, black, and red, will carry off a simple sweater, a logo sweatshirt, a down jacket. Or, best of all, a belted version of the Bordeaux Rib Silk Top from Dana Pisarra with its burgundy red lace insets at sleeves and hem. Elephant’s Deli is right next door, and we’re perfectly dressed for Happy Hour. 

Soon it will be St. Patrick’s Day. And the produce department is calling to us. It’s a wonderful opportunity to wear a combo of vegetation: first the trousers of Christine Vancouver’s swirling Erte Silk Pajamas, followed by the slinky Sophia Jewel Green Slip Dress from Gilda & Pearl. The full-length Erte Silk Velvet Robe completes the verdant picture. Note that this robe is made of devoré velvet, also called “burnout.” Created to imitate French lace at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries. It soon developed its own following, particularly in the 1920s. You’ll have your own chorus of oohs and aahs down the market aisles.  

So, let’s forget about jeans now and then. And create a little community fashion spirit, in beautiful and inspiring garments from Jane’s Vanity.
