Random Thoughts

As I was walking around the mall the other day, I realized there was quite a broad selection of denim mini skirts. I didn't really give to much thought till later on in one of my many daydreams. So heres the question.. what do we all think of the denim mini skirt? I feel somewhat drawn to it, yet repulsed by it at the same time. Mostly when I see denim mini skirts I think of the pre-teen girls pairing their mini with some overly tight logo-tee and ugg boots, I probably think this because this is basically how they are all worn. But I can also see an olsen wearing a denim mini and being like, hell yeah, I need me one of those!
So what do we think.. leave it for the kids, it can only look good on an olsen twin.. or is it possible to look cute for us regular civilians? If you think its possible.. how would you wear it too make it look different?

Going to the mall tommorow with a friend.. Im feeling quite down from my last trip to the mall, after empty and boring filled stores. Hopefully tommorows mega-mall will restore my faith.

I've been thinking lately that I need a very dark blue and tailored denim mini to pair with anything and wear as a basic. I think something like that would take away the cut-off, scraggly denim mini with uggs connotation...

Hmm, I think it all depends on how you wear it. Since I know we live pretty close since you showed a picture of English Bay..haha I wouls suggest american eagle. I think the denim skirts there are reasonably priced and I think theres some cute minis there. I would for summer : gladiator sandals (this is a given), a crisp cotton top with some cute detailing of some sort, etc etc. For winter : tights, boots, leather jacket.

i like pairing denim skirts with plain white-vnecks, a gold necklaces and boxy blazers.

Yes, when I think of denim minis..I think of those teenagers too! But when someone else rocks it, I'll want it ! Hahah I guess we should just wear it & add your own style into the outfit?

They make me think of my old "Hollister" days too much :/ But I suppose on some people they work.

Im also repulsed by them. Denim mini skirts and tights tees just seem to be the uniform of summer for most teenage girls around here and i cant get over that.

definitely depends on how you wear it. i've had mine for years now and still wear them to this day...but with loose fitting shirts or flannels.
