MOMMA NEEDS… distressed denim for women and kids


Me in my distressed Blank NYC jeans with my darling mini-me clinging on in his gap distressed jeans…

I love my distressed denim.  They’re cool, comfortable and nobody would know that my little max just wiped his hands all over them.  My dad would look at me and huff, “I hope you didn’t pay full price for those – they’ve got holes in them!” but you can’t please everyone.  Distressed denim once again delivers that effortless look but these are not the shapeless shredded jeans from the 80′s – today’s look is tailored and sexy yet worn and torn.  Denim designers have gone to great lengths to insure that their jeans look naturally distressed without losing their fit.  Throw them on with a relaxed tee and pair of sneakers or boots for the park and then change into heels, add some jewels and you’re ready for dinner!  They’re great for our little ones too!  How many times (a flipping day) does he go running around and take a tumble in the yard and come back with dirty knees?  How many times a day am I changing his pants?  Enough that i feel relieved when he’s in his distressed denim which allows those dirt stains and perhaps even adds to the look.  Of course, getting them dressed with too many holes can be more trouble than its worth so for the kids its more about the wear than the tear – kids distressed denim means the pants are softer, giving a worn look (to camouflage the mess) while also being more comfy for little one’s delicate skin  The messier these jeans get the more it can add to the style – so you can feel free to mess the dress (errr… the denim) and have fun without the worry!  Here are some great distressed denim jeans for both you and your little pig pens…
