So ok – you guys know by now – I am really a no-frill-no-kill total basic 5-pocket-jean person, preferably made of 100% cotton.

BUT here’s the thing. Even I sometimes get the urge to do something a bit different. And especially when I know that my friends and family who know me pretty well (I daresay), will gasp when they see me. A little shock therapy is so ME LOL!

So now is the totally right time, what with the (shop)holiday season, and festive (expansive) moods, and all these parties and events coming up, to add something totally unexpected and yes, frilly, to my denim closet.

I have been debating for a while if I should go for something more moderate or go for the kill and – yeah, you got it – I went for the kill. Halfway was never my thing!

The Citizens of Humanity Drew Flounce High Rise Crop Flare meets all my requirements:

– unusual check
– eye-catching check
– fashionably hi-rise (and therefore comfy to wear under my coat) check
– absolutely unexpected check

And most of all – I so love to be a drama queen once in a while, and these babies scream drama!

So if you’re thinking of doing something different with your denim, this is it. No halfway, no lukewarm, no maybe trying-a-little, but TOTALLY. Ruffle and all.
