BDG + Beats

7.20.2012


Sacai ruffled tshirt, 
H and M leather shorts (last seen here),
Vintage bag (previously worn here), 
Thrifted necklace,  
Mossimo studded belt, 
14th + Union heels.

Last night, Lauren and I were invited to an Urban Outfitter's denim event for BDG denim. As we're huge fans of both brands, and of Twin Shadow who happened to be DJing, it was a no brainer for us to attend. 

Despite the fact that there was no AC, UO did everything else right. First stop: choosing a pair of jeans. Lauren decided upon a deep red pair while I went with classic indigo. Then we hit up two tables they set up that allowed you to customize the jeans as you wanted (think studs, glitter, paint, bleach). Lauren and I both chose to bleach the hell out of our jeans to give them more of a distressed look. With nothing to do but wait for them to dry we grabbed some drinks, took some pics on the Bowery, stuffed our faces with Korean tacos from the Korilla taco truck outside, and danced to the sweet tunes curtesy of Twin Shadow.

Pictured with Lauren above is our good friend Kara who is the final member of the Southside Heartbreakers. 

xx, M
