Dreaming in Denim
Denim...This classic cotton is one of our favorite fabrics. Denim, though its roots are mysterious, has been a favorite for uses ranging from ship's sails to cowboy's jeans for hundreds of years. As early as the 17th century use of this enigmatic fabric has transcended nationality and economic status becoming a popular choice of both the wealthy and the worker. In recent decades, movie stars, factory workers, bikers, and models have all embraced denim. You, too, can look causally cool or party perfect in your own choice of denim. Try layering jean shorts over tights for the perfect winter to spring transition outfit, pair an acid wash denim jacket with combat boots for an authentic grunge revival look, or pick up a denim mini dress perfect for a stroll though your local market this weekend. Check out these denim inspirations, then shop the VantagePointVintage store to purchase your own one-of-a-kind denim pieces!
