  1. I like the jeans....just enough edge without being over the top!

  2. I am loving the simplicity of the pieces of this outfit! Yet it ties all in together :)

  3. The blazer and jeans look so good on you! I gained a few lbs this summer and all my jeans are too tight at the waist! EEP.

  4. I absolutely love this look! I have a pair of ripped jeans that I absolutely adore and they fit perfectly. Sometimes I wish they weren't ripped though so I could wear them to work.

  5. You do ripped jeans perfectly and with such class!

  6. I used to rock the ripped jeans look not too long ago too! You look great! The blazer keeps it so classy.

  7. I do like the jeans dressed up! I think the necklace, blazer, and heels elevate it from "bad" girl to fashionably edgy girl :)

  8. i feel like i sometime need to dress my age, gosh Im almost 30! but i think it's fun and ok to dress young at times :). You look chic since you are styling it with heels.

  9. i love the distressing of these jeans! and pairing it with a nice fitted blazer and white tee does dress it up quite a bit. i really like the necklace too but can't believe it's going for $60 on ebay!!

    I have to tell you...the sparkly J. Crew belt that I got...spreads glitter everywhere! I see specks on my floors and think of you! I don't mind the specks...loving the belt! Have worn it at least once every week!

  13. Thank you all for the feedback :)

    @kileen - I just checked eBay and there are some NWOT going for ~$20 if you're interested.

    @Michelle - Ahh, I'm sorry about the glitter! Mine isn't that bad (or perhaps I'm not looking closely enough) but I hope it isn't too much of a mess for you.


I'd love to hear from you. Constructive criticisms welcome!
