Maybe it was the cold, the rain, the snow, or all of above, but casual dressing was in the New York air last week. Which explains the number of ripped jeans seen going to and from the shows. I had a pair that I wore a few years ago, and it was only last month that I banished them into retirement (i.e., gave them away). Guess that was premature. Oh, well. If I don't sit this one out, I might just go for these cheapies from Asos.
