I grinned at the sight of a man on the street with a shirt saying what’s inscribed in the title of this article. I had that feeling of stripping it away from him and wear it impromptu. But I didn’t – which is why it is the thing that I regret the most this month.
I would stop wearing black when they make a darker color – what a very witty catch phrase to put on a statement shirt that somebody like me would totally wear. Although I have to critique it a little because black has been debatable whether being a color or a shade – I think it’s the latter.
I have been vocal about my carnal attraction with black as evident in my first breakout blog post in this blog entitled Coven. I have said and will always say that not having something black in your ol’ goody stash is a sin. One simply cannot live without wearing something black – it’s resilient, classic, and always the answer in times of doubt. Pink-is-the-new-black my ass.
For this outfit, I delivered a less monochromatic look straying away from the first one that I presented by infusing the other closet mainstays and must-haves: white and denim. Classic Converse kicks and a muscle tee [regardless of how skinny I am] work well together to give off that effortless street look that makes every girl (or guy) like you and every guy want to be like you. And since I didn’t wanna come off as an indie-rockabilly, stapling the denim bag adds prep and a touch of kindness to a look – notice how I still look educated with the bag? Yep. Haha
BOBSON JAPANESE DENIM
Bobson has redefined the status of denim by incorporating the traditional Japanese finesse and discriminating process of creating their quality clothing and apparel products. Of their 45 years of manufacturing clothing, they have retained the process of creating denim since the brand was founded in 1969 in Okayama. Ergo, each pair of jeans is an embodiment of traditional training and craftsmanship of authentic Japanese denim.
The Okayama backpack is as stylish as it looks in the photos. It will go with any kind of classy to preppy look but I was experimental enough to incorporate it in a street style getup. The materials used are very light and I like that the straps are leatherette so it appears that the bag is expensive.
Since it is lightweight, I also advise to use it for packing light things like maybe not exceeding three kilos for it might easily deteriorate the parts of the backpack especially the leather straps.
