Current/Elliott Denim Cutoffs

Chick Downtown box @ Dream Sequins

Current Elliott denim shorts @ Dream Sequins

I recently won a pair of Current/Elliott distressed denim cutoffs from a giveaway on Lady Lunacy's blog, courtesy of Chick Downtown. To my delight, this beautifully wrapped box was waiting for me at home. A wonderful surprise ending to an otherwise gloomy week (at least weatherwise)...

Hopefully the sun will come out again soon so that I can wear my new shorts out! They are comfortable, stretchy, and a bit loose to be considered true sizing, but I have a feeling they will be my go-to baggy shorts for lazy, loungy days... This model, by the way, can be worn as is, or rolled up for a shorter length.

Those shorts look awesome on you! I usually wear 'em with a tee and flip flops. :)

Indiana Adams said...

I absolutely LOVE those shorts! Fantastic and congrats! I agree with the others-- I think they'd be super when rolled up.

FabBlab said...

Those wedges are gorgeous. And the cutoffs are cute. I love coming home to letters and/or packages. It's so much more exciting than an email! Retro chic, eh? ;)

Hey DS, is this you? Great look! I love those crazy Topshop wedges : )
Thanks for your nice comments. Are you coming to London for fashion week in September? If so, would love to meet you if you've got time. Let me know once you know you're dates.

So glad you found my blog so I could find yours. To answer how I wear my denim cutoffs: I don't - I can't find my favourite old vintage patched pair anywhere! I think they got lost in the shuffle of moving to London. While I'm here (on the North Fork) my plan is to go to Tanger Mall and see if there is a pair left anywhere in my size.

I'm wearing, however, a pair of lime green seersucker stripe short shorts by Mizrahi via Target, as I type this : )

love this outfit both chic & cool...and the wedges are to dye for!!

JP said...

Lucky girl! Those look stellar on you, and I agree with the girls... rolled up is better.

Denim shorts tend to look best dressed down... if they're a looser fit, wear with a more fitted top (and vice versa) to make sure you don't kill your figure with wearing too many loose items!

Love,
JP

Cuteness! I would wear those shorts with anything and everything.

I actually bought a pair of jeans yesterday that I want to turn into cut-offs today. Fingers crossed they turn out.

fashionpickles said...

I live in denim shorts in the summer. I do wish I had a longer pair! Those are great, I really like them!

Bellwether said...

Oh! I'm wearing those right now - aren't they the best?!? I've been wearing mine with dressy flat sandals but i love them with the wedges!

Alyssa said...

Those look super cozy. I like shorts to be looser anyway so they don't ride up all funny when you sit. I love casual outfit paired with the awesome wedges.

JESS said...

wow those shorts are awesome & those wedges are AMAZING! i would wear the shorts all summer, with everything. love that you can roll them up or wear them long. congrats!

Dream Sequins said...

Ooh thanks for your comments everyone! I just bought a pair of cool flat sandals that I think I'm going to wear with the shorts rolled up tonight :D

MizzJ said...

Def wear them rolled up, it just looks chicer that way and not to so tomboy-ish. Congrats on the win, they look great on you!

nicola ticola ponders said...

He's a cutie isn't he! Hehe, thanks. He's a Japanese Chin, always getting mistaken for a shih tzu, and he's teeny weeny! 7 months old, and the SWEETEST dog in the world, I've heard him bark about 3 times in total, he's amazing. Actually he's chewing my new shoe as we speak...hmmm, he does have his naughty doggy side!


I like them kinda shorts rolled up so you can see the pockets poking through the bottom

awesome! i just got a box from chickdowntown, and i love the luxury of the ribbon, the box, the tissue and the cute little 'chick' sticker! (i recently have seen someone poo poo the whole package, but i think it's part of the luxury, and it IS all going to get recycled by moi).
anyway, i have a pair of similar shorts from genetic denim and i LOVE them - you'll wear them everyday!

Damsels said...

wow im loving how the look loose!
tight shorts can be too much but this is really nice .. it has a sort of bf oversized mary kate thing happening

Anika said...

Ooooh, you've made them look killer! I adore anything slashed/distressed/ripped (current obsession) so these are right on the money. Plus with those insane shoes (LOVE!!!) its a seriously ridiculously awesome outfit.

Congrats on winning them :)

Have a great weekend!

Um. Thank you for all your lovely comments, guys. It's humbling to think that my outfit posts are the ones with the most comments. LOL. I don't consider myself the most stylish person, but I do loooooove my shoes! I'm feeling more wedge buying mania soon.
