Fashion has always been something I've been passionate about ever since I was a little girl. I think one of the biggest reasons why is because I love being able to express myself through my clothing. It's a way to really show who you are without speaking- which I think is amazing! This denim patchwork jacket does just that!
I'm a huge thrift store shopper. A few years ago, I found this amazing Levi's denim jacket for only $6!! I had to buy it! So for fashion week, I decided to customize it and really make it my own! After finding a few patches that represent what I love (lipstick, vacationing where there are palm trees, and fun sayings. I put them on my jacket. My plan is to fill the entire jacket up with patches over the years- from every country/ city I visit. Quick tip: don't super glue! I learned the hard way. I was trying to take the easy way out.
Sometimes the best way to wear a cocktail dress is by pairing it with something casual, like a denim jacket to change things up. It makes the dress more interesting by creating the juxtaposition of classy and casual. You can take off the jacket and the look becomes formal. I wore a ton of my funky bright bracelets to bring out the colors of the jacket. Paired it with red pumps and matching bad to finish the look.
