determined to find delicious denim

After a worn hole showed up in a 2nd pair of my absolute favorite jeans, I have decided it is finally time to toss my first designer denim love and start browsing for some new ones. As much as I adore(d) my pair of Paiges, I cannot help but wonder if there is a better option. Banana Republic's are too short, Rock&Republic logo on the pockets isn't my style, and Joe's stretch too much. Other options may include Hudson and J Brand. But then again, maybe it is just the style of the jeans that I am basing my opinion, which isn't entirely fair. Perhaps my perfect pair is waiting in the form of a brand I don't think I like, but may end up loving. I guess I will start from square one and begin trying on all potentials. Any suggestions/favorites would be much appreciated. I am determined to find my perfect pair of jeans!

mystery man with the brilliant jacket

this picture was taken in panama, without the guy knowing he was being photographed. love the atmosphere, love the bold jacket. i am curious: what is he thinking about? where is he from? why is he there? regardless of answers, his surroundings encircle him as if to say none of it really matters anyway. a bit existential, but i really love this one. (definitely worth clicking on to make bigger.)
