We’ve been wondering what our jeans would say if they could talk. It’s been 84 days (more about the project on our Tumblr), and that’s quite a lot of togetherness. So we listened in:

Yes, we’re on a tie-dye kick. And here’s one more good reason to jump on the bandwagon! Cook & Gates makes vibrant, beautifully designed tie-dye bags in denim, from classic blue and white to purple & deep navy, and they’re the perfect size for toting your stuff to the beach this summer. The line is a collaboration between artists Ethan Cook and Sara Gates, with Brooklyn-based designer Mary Meyer, who releases collections of geometrically printed knits. They range at around $20—$150, so there’s something for you, even if you’re pulling purse strings at the moment. But jump on it, they’re limited!
Visit the Cook & Gates online shop to browse the selection.

We came across this gorgeous denim jacket street style by Lena A. on Lookbook that put the essence of contemporary tie-dye on the table—and in case you haven’t heard, tie-dye is making a massive comeback for summer. It brings rock’n'roll and straight-up bohemian together, and when you mix it with a floor-length white skirt, there’s an angelic aura of hippie-chic that will be just as comfortable in the mid-day heat as it will be on hot summer nights.
If you love this look like we do, scroll below for the breakdown and find out how you can score these pieces and rock this outfit on your own.
1. Buffalo “Kenna” Tie-Dye Top ($39) – buy it at Dillard’s.

Repairing jeans is our business here at Denim Therapy. And our most common repair? We like to call it the crotch blowout. It’s what happens when you ride bikes, do a lot of walking, or basically just LIVE YOUR LIFE. After spending a while in your jeans, the crotch area at the base of your bum begins to wear away on the left and right sides of the inseam, forming holes in the fabric. Crotch blowouts happen to both guys and girls, in tight jeans or baggy jeans—it’s just a point of stress on the fabric. Below is a recent before and after of some jeans we repaired. The right side had a 2 inch hole, and the left side needed some preventative reinforcement.
Has this happened to you? Let us fix your jeans! Go to www.denimtherapy.com to find out more about our repair services and reweaving process, and to look at more before and afters.

This spring summer season is all about color and if you’ve been with us for more than a few scrolls you know we’re totally into it. Here fashion blogger Carolina Engman rocks an amazing pair of red high waisted jeans styled to color-blocking perfection with a vintage blouse in a saturated purple hue and an electric green Cambridge Satchel. Needless to say we’re in love! Not quite ready for a full-on bold primary color fest just yet? Start simple!
