wearing // Warren Zevon tour shirt and jean cutoffs

Warren Zevon is, by far, my favorite musical artist, so when I saw this shirt on eBay, I immediately lusted over it, but it was WAY out of my price range. The seller kept relisting it, and I started making offers, but all my offers were countered with a price I wasn't quite ready to dole out on a tee shirt, so I continued to dream, and continually check eBay frantically, worried that someone else might have snagged it. So, long story (kind of) short, I bought it. It was less than the original price, but still super expensive (for this thrift queen, anyways). I don't regret it, though, especially after it arrived in the mail and I got to feel how wonderfully worn in it is, and see how perfectly it fits. Plus, there are cool shirts, but are any of them Warren Zevon tour, skull wearing sunglasses smoking a cigarette wearing a Native American headdress in front of an Amercan flag cool? Yeah, no. Worth it. Hello, new favorite shirt.

I bought a pair of jeans at the thrift store (where else?), and this past winter, as I sat inside and dreamt about days where it wasn't below freezing outside, I cut them into shorts and distressed them. Distressing denim is fun! My favorite distressing implement is a cheese grater, but can openers, bottle caps, and lighters (careful!) are all similarly entertaining and effective.

I love this look! It's good to splurge on a clothing item every now and then. :) And distressing denim does sound like a lot of fun!

Great outfit ... even if I totally lost track if it comes to music ... who is this guy?! Prbably I'm listening too much to Hank Williams and Wanda Jackson ;)
