My life in the early 2000s can be boiled down to two things: texting boys and denim skirts. Apparently not much has changed, since I’m always blowing up bae’s phone and adoring Re / Done & Levi’s denim skirt which is brand new, proving once again that yes, fashion is okay. cyclic. I can hold on to this feeling a little too much hard, though, which is probably why my closet is full of things I’ll never wear again.
According to Who What Wear, Re / Done | Levi’s launched their first skirt, and of course, it’s denim. And of course, I’m already in love. If you are unfamiliar with Re / Done, it is “a movement – a movement to restore individuality to the luxury fashion space, a movement to keep heritage brands relevant and a movement to create sustainable fashion, ”according to their website. In essence, they’re the coolest denim company that takes vintage Levi’s and rips them up, reusing them in new jeans.
And boy, are they cool. As in I am on the waiting list for several of them, and I can’t wait to have these babies in my hands. Each pair is “handpicked, hand cut and distinctly one of a kind.” Talk about tailor-made! Find any fashionable it girl, and she’s sure to have a pair of Re / Done jeans in her arsenal. Now this super cool company is taking on the skirt game.

I mean, could she have been cooler in that skirt? I do not think so.
I live for it.
With a white tank? Yeah.
It’s so beautiful !
Should I continue? So while pleated denim skirts were like all the rage in the early 2000s, I have to say, I’m pretty glad we stepped away from them. Fortunately, now we have simpler versions that are much more flattering and go with just about everything. But one thing’s for sure, I’ll never stop texting boys.
