Denim on Denim + Black Benedictine


Long after my first attempt at wearing denim on denim, I have finally found a suitable shirt for pairing.

Come to think of it, my penchant for denim-on-denim is in line with my taste for monochrome. Denim-on-denim being its most casual form.


I have accessoried this shirt by Topman with five steel beads hanging on the thinnest of necklaces. Don't want to interfere that much with strong and simple design.


The buttons are meant to resemble mother-of-pearl, much whiter than my coffee-stained not-so-pearly whites.

Days after, I wore this new necklace from my Sacre line of Bosquejo accessories. Named it Benedictine after the saint on the pendant.


Wore denim again, this time in black. Paired the Sacre necklace with another from the Djinn line, all in black.

I like how this one turned out looking like a striped shirt, with the colors of Charlie Brown's outfit.

I made this necklace thinking that this would first and foremost be masculine. And it is.


But that hasn't stopped my sister from wearing it. She appears today on my streetstyle blog, La Folie Douce, where you can see the rest of her outfit.
