Double D

Unfortunately not my bra size. But hey!  My initials!
...and also -what in some circles is known as the Texan Tux and in others...watchu smokin' fool? - Double Denim.

I don't think I've done Double Denim since...hmmm... ever! 
Not even back in the days when I walked those streets, a loaded six string on my back and I played for keeps...
So yeah.  Double denim reminds me of 80s rockstars.  As much as I loved them, they were not my style icons.  But...I also thought the world would never see my awesome Guitar Hero skills.  And here I am...
This is what I wore to work today.  This is what I last wore to grind my axe...

By the way... you Twitterers(?) ... Tweeters?... Tweet people... if you 'see' Tex aka Fashion Butter... can you say "howdy"?  I miss that woman!


I love this denim dress, the material is marvelous, like a bandage without the pain.
I double-denimed the dress with this fabulous diamante encrusted, 'Guess' stretchy denim jacket that I have had for 18 years.

Indulging in typical 80s rock star behaviour.

And again.

The dress solo.
I'm wearing 'Athena' bodylace plus a neckpiece and ringlet from the (about to be released) Gaia line.
(close-ups below)
Hope you don't mind my sugar allergy induced cheetah-print skin!  I'm digging it! 

We're in Autumn down under and it was pouring today!  Which called for one of my vintage trench coats.
I love this coat.  I love all my coats. 

In fact, I love them so much I'm taking a page out of Misfits Vintage's blog and I'll be doing a whole post about them!
I've linked to the blog so you can also see her latest post with that delicious pink trench but scroll down to see the rest of her collection...and read her posts but BEWARE... please don't drink before you read.  Or at least, swallow.  Or you'll spray your monitor.

Misfit Sarah is one of the funniest, wittiest bloggers ever
She is rip snortingly funny, wickedly smart, deliciously stylish and one of a kind in manner and in mode.
A unique snowflake in a blogging blizzard.  J
I adore her! AND... will be seeing her very soon... totally nervous!


Neckpiece from 'Gaia' collection.  Can be worn 2 ways.

Ringlet from 'Gaia' Collection

Bloody hell. Can you see me blushing from up there?

I am thrilled/mortified/honoured beyond belief!

Thank you so much, Dusk... no pressure or anything! You'll laugh your head off when we meet - I am so socially awkward I'll probably call you Denise, trip on some invisible thing, come out of the loo with my skirt tucked into my undies and toilet paper stuck to my heel and then fall off my platforms!

You are such a treasure. Thank you so much for your amazing words. Honestly, I am a bit lost for words about your words!

Got plenty of words about your outfit however! The vintage trench WITH HOOD! And the killer cowgirl boots! And that amazing ring! All SO FAB!

See you in 11 sleeps.

Love, Sarah xxx

Awwww! Stop it. I'm already green with envy that you're all meeting up without me without you rocking that amazing denim frock and the awesome jewellery.
I thought the title might have been boob-related, no chance here either. xxx

The last time I tried denim to denim was back in college, quite a long time ago haha! Most of the bloggers are trying this and it brings back the memory! Earlier I did some shopping and saw denim to denim at Sisley's window display, it made my day really!
