I'm not going to pretend like I'm the first person to mix something grungy and edgy like the ripped jeans with something a little more feminine and fancy like this statement necklace together, and talk about "juxtaposition" or whatever. But I think there's a reason why we keep seeing outfits put together with contrasting pieces like that, because, well, they always look really interesting and good together.

When I first received this necklace in the mail I already knew I wanted to pair it with ripped jeans, but it was with a pair of ripped jeans that only existed in my mind and not in my closet. I mean, do you know how hard it is to find a pair of ripped jeans that is ripped without gaping holes? Sure, you could argue and say that's the whole point of the existence of ripped jeans. Not going to argue with you on that, because I don't have strong fighting points to go against that argument. But for people like me, who want to cover up but are still totally into the idea of ripped jeans, we need those with lining underneath the ripped part. 

It's just always less of a hassle to find ripped jeans that already comes with lining underneath them (perfect for winter, by the way) as it saves extra trips to the tailor, so I was so glad when the ripped jeans of my dreams materialised in a shop in Shibuya 109 last November.
