motherload explored.

i originally talked about the motherload here.
it's basically the result of my search for the perfect pair of jeans over the years.
well...that, and also one of my favorite boutiques had the most amazing selection of jeans.
i never left without a pair...or two.
jenny over at spry on the wall wanted to see a picture,
so here it is.
the majority is denim with some other things sprinkled in.
there are six containers in the motherload. pictured here are the contents of three.
i've also got several "donation" bags full in my closet.
funny thing is that i rarely wear jeans nowadays, just a couple of favorites that are always in rotation.
hate that i was so frivolous back then.
guess the best thing to do is recycle?
i'll be setting up the [marketplace.] shortly, so any of yous in need of denim...possibly some DIY cutoffs for spring...
stay tuned.

my boy was surprisingly patient for several hours while i explored, so i rewarded him with a picnic outside.
cold drinks. blue skies. warm sun.

hope yous had a wonderful weekend.

  11. Wow - call me impressed! Thanks for the pictures! I'm still hunting for that perfect pair. Pre-baby I was all over Citizens of Humanity, but now they just don't fit as well as they did. I also dug Blue Cult (do they even exist anymore?). Now, I guess I must start all over again - lol!

    The outdoor picnic looks perfect - we had a lovely weekend here to upper 70's - yay!

  14. Yeah it are a lot of pills but they work and it's a much better habbit than smoking, right? :d {That's what I always say when I have to admit an addiction}

    And wow, you could start your own jeans shop! Good thing you're selling them.That way you'll get back some of the money you've put in that collection!

  21. lol, you have so many jeans!!! im not a collector of denim jeans so i give away some that i dont wear anymore. so i have like probably 10-15 pairs left in my closet.

    about your comment re MA shoes, i haven't actually worn them yet for a long period of time, but so far they're ok. it'll probably hurt after 3-4 hrs or so. HAHA!! they do not have some sort of cushion in the sole but it's a bit of a platform heels so it takes a lil bit of the pain.
