no longer assless, chaps!
in keeping with my resolution to mend all my broken junk, i reinstated the posteriors on two favourite pairs of jeans yesterday. a little ironing on, a little stitching and an hour of dragon's den and i have been reunited with two old faves. sure, i look like a scare crow in that first pair. sure, i have had them since high school. but sometimes it becomes a special obsession to keep a singular article of clothes alive.
i know i am a grown-up now because i get irritated when my pants wear out. wearing out was the best part of jeans-ownership when i was a pouty teen in grunge-era vancouver. denim patches provide a happy medium between my two selves.
