Discover Your Own Paradise.Posted: July 29, 2015
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
The infamous Vintage Light Denim Reworked High Waisted Levi 501 Shorts! Yes, you’ve seen them everywhere on social media but they are seriously the best pair of high rise denim shorts I own. The quality of the denim is exactly how denim jean shorts should be. For as long as I can remember, Levi’s were one of the main brands when shopping for denim jeans. The search to find a pair of these bad boys was a bit of a challenge. From thrifting while I lived in San Francisco, to searching the internet, and now back home here in Hawaii. The most difficult part I had finding a pair was making sure the fit was right and that the price wouldn’t going to empty out my wallet.
One of my favorite places to shop is at second hand stores. The possibilities of finding amazing pieces from vintage to modern are endless. These Levi’s actually had two price tags on them, one from Savers and one from Buffalo Exchange! A privately owned, family-operated fashion resale retailer that buys and resells used clothing in San Francisco! I would always stop by there frequently to shop on Haight Street along with Crossroads Trading Company, another amazing secondhand retailer.
These photos were taken by my neighbor, brother (from another mother), and great friend @AdamVegasBomb who just recently moved back home from Vegas! He suggested this park in a apartment complex a few of our friends lives in, that I had no idea existed? It was around the time I like to call “the golden hours”, where everything just radiates gold light in the last moments of the suns energy – Filling us up until we meet again in the morning.
The sun doesn’t struggle to rise and neither should we.
In this look I am wearing..
