Vintage Denim Jacket

As of a few months ago, I had not bought something at a vintage store since High School (when I was a regular at our local Goodwill to buy denim). Fast forward to this spring when I was on a mad and unsuccessful hunt for the perfect denim jacket.  I was looking for something perfectly weathered / cropped / and that fit like a glove.  Wherever I looked or asked for help, I had no luck. Then, at the recommendation from a stylish friend, I went to 9th Street Vintage, and bought my new favorite piece of clothing, a vintage denim jacket.


This jacket is from the 30s! How cool is that! Almost 90 years old — and so supers tylish and cool. GAWD I love it.

Check out the back.

The pleats!

The details!

The perfect cropped and weathered denim jacket.

Officially in love.


If you are in the market for anything vintage or denim of any sort (and near NYC), be sure to go to 9th Street Vintage in the East Village of NYC and check it all out. The owners are so cute and helpful and their selection is unbelievable — I walked away with so many goodies, but my personal favorite is this jacket.

Camp Wolf

Denim + Pendelton = DREAM COME TRUE.

Camp Wolf

Born in Portland, Oregon, as of September 2013 (brand stinking new!) Camp Wolf was inspired by a love for Pacific Northwestern life and a passion for making cool clothes for cool kids. Everything is hand sewn and one-of-a-kind — recycled vests with Pendleton fabric — to create a cheery, hip, and stylish look for kids ranging from newborn to 5 years old. Original and unique!

Frame Denim

Just like Miranda Kerr (because, I am JUST SO like Miranda Kerr- ha ha), my newest jean obsession is Frame Denim.


Things we have in common: Both mothers of a baby boy, live in NYC, married to hot men, and love Frame denim. Call us soul sisters.

FRAME was founded in 2012 by Jens Grede and Erik Torstensson, both London-based Swedes (love them Swedes).  The two came together to create the perfect pair of jeans by “bringing together the quality and heritage of denim manufacturing in Los Angeles, with the influence of a London style, cut and fit.”  How chic are the Brits? Or the Swedes? Or the British-based Swedes?


Some of the jeans. I am in love with all the different washes.

The different washes of the jeans are innovative without being overly weird. Bright, interesting, and strong hues.  I am most obsessed with the light blue pair of Frame denim exclusive with Net-a-porter.
