I didn't find myself doing too much this NYFW, aside from the Jasmine Chong S/S 17 showroom and the Tumblr & Tipsy show (where this outfit was taken). Year after year, I find myself drifting further and further away from the fashion world and somehow it feels right. For a younger "fashion-minded" Jen, I would say that I peaked in 2013 when the Wall Street Journal called me a style influencer and I sat front row at Mercedes Benz. For a more "current" Jen, I would say I'm infinitely more comfortable in the life I'm living now, further away from the madness that I never quite fit into.
Wearing a denim skirt actually reminds me of the time I took Fashion Design in high school, with the idea that it would be my first dive into the fashion world. Turns out, you have to learn a shit ton of sewing before you even start designing shit ... in Fashion Design II. I never made it that far, but I left the class with a shoddy denim skirt that I created out of old denim shorts that symbolizes how I will always fit into the fashion world. I'll always be the shoddy, handmade denim skirt in a world of designer skirts. But like, I was so proud of it. Am so proud of it.
