LDTTWC Day 7- You're Timeless to Me!

 The day's theme was something that never goes out of style. It's pretty impressive for something to be popular yesterday, today, and tomorrow! So I thought immediately of blue jeans! They were created in 1873 and have been popular every year since!
I chose to depict the classic blue jean with a stitched pocket, however, this is certainly not the only kind out there! (Sorry for the dark pics, I took them at night :)

It seems as though every year since their creation, the jean has been redone for the times. Let's take a look at some of the jean styles through the ages:

  • First was the regular, plain button blue jeans made by Levi's
  • Then there were overalls
  • In the 70's, flare jeans were popular
  • Bootcut and jean shorts hit the scene
  • More recently, the skinny jean and "jegging" have been created
  • Within the past few years, the style has been to dye jeans in every color of the rainbow
  • And I heard that the newest denim fad of the year is metallic colored jeans
So even though they've been around forever, jeans haven't gone out of style, and I think they never will!

Colors Used:

  • Maybelline Color Show in Navy Narcissist- and just fyi, this color is amazing!!! The blue is gorgeous and metallic-y. This is possibly my new favorite polish :)
  • Pure Ice in Frosted Ice Sky- this color is silver, but on top of the blue, it takes on a slightly purple tint which is really cool

I can't believe there's only one day left in this challenge! It's been great, and I hope you've enjoyed it! Check back later in this week for my final post, a recreation of my design from the challenge.
