After a few bumps and bruises, we are well on the way to breaking in my new pair of raw denim A.P.C. jeans purchased a few weeks ago.
My second wearing of the jeans went even better than expected! There has been a noticeable softening of the fabric and they are becoming genuinely comfortable. I am debating whether to have them hemmed an inch, but I usually wait until washing them to see if they shrink up.
There seems to be a real debate on raw denim, wash to break in, or just don't wash at all to maintain the custom effects of breaking them in? What side of the debate do you fall on regarding denim? I love the artisan look of a well broken in pair of jeans but I usually fail to go very long without washing them (my OCD/need for clean tends to win out against whiskers).
Also note, my hair is down! As you can see, I didn't attempt any drastic changes at my last hair appointment, just a few more highlights and a trim. My plan is to ease my way into a lighter shade for the summer. Slow and steady, rather than drastic and heaven forbid, brassy! Quelle horreur! At least my hair is getting ready for the Spring, even if mother nature continues to unleash her fury upon us.
