Move over "Canadian Tuxedo,"
and say hello to the Pan-American, or Triple Denim.
You are witnessing three, count 'em, THREE layers of denim on my body. T-H-R-E-E, tres, trois, or as they say in Ottawa, "three, eh?" Three colors of jean on me, and I lived to tell the tale. Folks: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! This is a dangerous combination, highly combustible, and if careless, can cause injury to the wearer. To be honest, I narrowly escaped with my life.
For some reason, I've been layering two pairs of skirts all winter, pretending I own a petticoat, and thought to try it with my two full jean skirts. The addition of my recently acquired grey demin jacket from Thrift Town, was pure Yankee gumption. I really like the cut of its jib. Since I was already doused in denim, it was a slippery slope and so I ruthlessly added a pairing of mismatched stripes: a Target purchased acrylic navy-black pullover (from last winter) and my grey-/black striped knee highs. Ok, I'll confess: I have 3 of the exact pairs of these socks. I buy my socks in threes. So if I lose one sock, I'll always be able to muster up a pair. There's nothing worse than ending up with a lonely-only of your favorite pair of socks.
Interesting story (not really): I sometimes sneak into my neighbor's yard to take my pictures. He is a friendly old man, who is himself a hobbyist photographer, so he's pretty supportive of my shutter-bugging. Well, he caught me frolicking in his yard in my triple threat of denim. I was trying to apologize, you know, for blatantly trespassing, which is difficult to do when you are wearing a Pan-American, but he cut me off. Laughing, he wanted to see what I had taken so far. After a quick peek in the view-finder, he shook my hand and told me I was always welcome to use his yard to take my pictures. I just love my neighbors!
