Denim Inspiration of the Day

You probably heard "Blue Jeans" by Lana Del Ray way too many times, so here`s a pretty good cover by Eugene McGuinness. Perhaps it`s less incredibly sexy, but more rocking for sure.

Denim nails? Yes Please!

For those of you who haven`t heard of this yet, I bring you the good news - denim effect manicure courtesy of Nails Inc. Finally someone came up with the idea! Looks gorgeous on the pictures, but to know for sure if it delivers on the promise I naturally need to try it and urgently too! Alas, it looks like the coveted polish is not yet available, but Nails Inc offers you to sign up here and be notified once it becomes possible to place the order.

Welcome, rebels!

Whether you followed the link I posted somewhere or stumbled upon this blog by chance, you might be wondering - why "denim rebel"? Is denim really that rebellious? Well, in a way, it is. Over the last 100 years, jeans made their transition from the practical uniform of cowboys to the key fashion item. But besides carrying the spirit of the Wild West, denim became the uniform of the young, wild and reckless, and has played a vital role in the fashion culture all these years. Naturally denim is now worn pretty much by all - from toddlers to their great grandparents, and yet it still carries its eternal free spirit, especially if represented by a pair of classic blue jeans, distressed and combined with printed tees, leather and cool booties. For me personally denim is just one of those favorite things - over the years I`ve owned everything in denim, from a pair of Converse to a wallet, and jeans remain the key part of almost every outfit I wear. I guess for me having so much denim in one`s wardrobe signifies refusal to grow up - at least in terms of style, and refusal to become serious and ladylike - choosing mischief, rock-n-roll, and living on the edge instead. And this is what The Denim Rebel is going to be about - rocking it out, staying cool and free and enjoying all the awesome denim life has to offer.
