Today is Dress in Blue Day. In honor of this national day, which helps raise awareness for colon cancer, we’re flashing back to one of our favorite blue ensembles from the “True Blue” editorial, which appeared in Vogue Australia in 2013.

Tom Ford walked the runway in a Canadian Tuxedo at London Fashion Week, perhaps taking the torch from all the denim draped icons at NYFW – seriously, we still haven’t come close to posting all of them. We’re digging the belt-less look, Mr. Ford. Yum.
So what if the thermostat in my car reads 101 degrees. That’s not stopping this die-hard denim fan from jumping on her hot bike and cruising around the mean streets of LA. Me, I’m sticking to tank tops, cotton lounge shorts and the AC that blast from my car. Or maybe chambray, which makes for the perfect hot weather Canadian Tuxedo.
Leave it to the lovely Olivia to take the Canadian Tuxedo up a notch or ten. The newlywed fashion icon was seen in a chambray button down from Topshop and jean skirt by black orchid paired perfectly with shoes from her line with Aquazurra at the Marchesa show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen her decked in denim.
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.
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.
After day five of a 14-day cleanse, I was desperate to go out. So much so, I agreed to go to Barney’s Beanery stone cold sober. Amid the colorful cast of regulars, was Grytt Young from Australia, who refused to be photoed for my blog unless my friend, Kate Schintzius, posed with him. Kate’s gorgeous in grey in a C&C California shirt, Floggs (Clogs with a flip flop sole? Yes, please.) and Lucky Brand jeans – head-to-toe Cali brands. Me likey. Seems like yesterday I was in the LA Style Shoot with Lucky for Hellin Kay’s Champagne and Heels.
I digress …
Saving the best for last: the Canadian Tuxedo. Our new Aussie friend was rocking a denim shirt and waxed jeans form H&M (“I’m a simple guy,” he drunkly explained.), and a tank from Balinese line Zuttion.
