"Once upon a time, there were three little girls who went to the police academy. And they were each assigned very hazardous duties but I took them all away from all that and now they work for me. My name is Charlie.
Cue Charlies Angel music. Anyone remember Sabrina, Kris and Kelly? I wanted to be Kelly - yeah - in my dreams. Wrong nationality, one foot too short, three sizes too big. Like I said - in my dreams. And for some reason, my friends always made me play Sabrina because I had the shortest hair. These things stick in your brain you know.
Anyway, the above sprung to mind after I had a little play with some old jeans and teamed them with a denim shirt. I'm doing that thing where everyone is wearing boyfriend jeans so I've got it in my head I want to wear something else. I'm not sure the something else are these old jeans but hey ho they were in one of my many dressing up boxes and I didn't have to go far for them. Getting me out of the door in this double denim ensemble might be another thing altogether. I may very well be laughed out of the playground for wearing this one ... hence the fact that I'm "trialling" this in the safety of my home.
Zara Shirt, Wrangler Jeans, Krimble Sandals
The jeans are actually old Wrangler bootcuts circa 2004/5. When bootcuts were still all the rage. Teamed with the shirt. they have a hint of the seventies about them - just nod and humour me. Just pretend they are funky flares.
Wrangler - now that's really 70's!
According to Wikipedia, Wrangler jeans in the 1970's became an icon of youth culture, synonymous with teenagers the world over. Yes I cribbed that from Wiki.
And because I've now got this seventies thing going on in my head, I felt the need to accessorise.

Okay, the glasses were a bit overkill but the overall outfit brought back happy memories of my childhood. Oh yes and when the 2000 movie of Charlies Angels came out - yup you guessed it - I wanted to be Lucy Liu.
So what do you think of double denim then? What do you think of the bootleggy flares? I have to say this is a tricky one and will definitely divide opinions. For the skinny diehards, these are probably almost worst than boyfriend jeans. Be interested to hear what you think.
Last note :
- Did you know that the Angels cast was to be originally made up of one brunette, one blonde and one redhead? Neither did I till tonight.
