This site is a place to celebrate a look, so we rarely mock an outfit, but man are we happy someone was out there rightfully ripping apart fashion no-no’s on and off the red carpet.
I found this photo of a rarely dressed down Joan Rivers at home with her dogs in her Connecticut home from the February 2003 issue Architectural Digest. Denim and a yorkie? I love you even more.
While I’ve never seen her rocking a Canadian Tuxedo, she certainly put her name on plenty of denim through her signature line she sold on QVC.
“I said to my husband, my boobs have gone, my stomach’s gone, say something nice about my legs. He said, ‘Blue goes with everything.'”
We concur. Rest In Peace. Hoping you’re looking fierce up there with Spike and all your other fabulous dogs and friends.
Just caught wind of this one … While this is a place to support and embrace the denim-worshipping community, sometimes bad ones make headlines and we have to call it out. Katy Perry walked the red carpet at tonight’s MTV VMAs in this number. We love Katy, despite some questionable wardrobe choices (tonight being the most recent), but seriously … was this a joke? Was she not Wide Awake when she got dressed? Was it a throwback to the ever-mocked Britney/JT denim disaster, or are they trying to top it? If it’s the latter, we may have a winner. Regardless of fashion sense – or lack thereof – we love Katy and the message she sends out to young women and little girls. She’s a firework, and we’re forever grateful.
Heading back to school in style with one of our favorite denim backpacks.

The model/actress/fellow Ohioan/Andy Roddick’s better half was spotted draped in denim while shooting scenes for something in LA. I just may have to tune into her new show Grace & Frankie to see if this look makes a cameo.
Thank you, NPR, which posted this photo of singer/songwriter Ryan Adams doing his thing at last weekend’s Newport Folk Festival. As you can imagine, this folk fest was littered with many amazing double denim looks – it’s kind of their uniform. See more on the Newport Folk Festival’s Facebook page: guaranteed to cure any case of the Mondays …. so much denim.
Listen to Ryan Adams’ complete set from the NFF here.

makes me happy … (sorry. had to.)
Before the opening band for Dean Wareham went on at the Roxy last Thursday night, I spotted this Canadian Tux in the crowd. The gent, who preferred to remain nameless, was rocking Wrangler jeans (don’t see those enough) and a Levi’s jacket, complete with a perfectly styled mullet, for which this photo does not do justice.
And if Dean comes to a town near you, do yourself a favor and check him out.
