Ripped

I have a complicated relationship with ripped denim. When I was in junior high school, I thought ripped  (probably Abercrombie or Hollister) jeans were the coolest. It would take forever for them to wear out just right. However, as soon as they would rip, my mom would deem these as unacceptable and put them into the goodwill pile.  

So now, I have an aversion to ripped denim.  When I am perusing denim, I halfway feel (as my mother did/does) that I shouldn't spend money on something that is already destroyed. 

I got these jeans from Goodwill (full circle), thinking that I shouldn't feel guilty if they are only six bucks. However, being from Goodwill, they are far from the perfectly ripped and stonewashed denim that I am looking for...perhaps I should attack them with some bleach as well, and squeeze the remaining life they have out of them.

  4. Haha, I know what you mean! I feel weird buying ripped denim (but I do have an expensive pair, oops) and then my family makes fun of me. "did you pay extra for those rips?!)
