Denim Day

Posted By on Fri, Mar 19, 2010 at 8:30 AM

What did I say last Friday?

They might as well rename it Denim Day.

Sophorn says she wears jeans almost every Friday, but still likes to wear heels with them. This particular pair is from Dillards.

In addition to her jeans — from Forever 21, one of the only stores that carry a size 0 — she paired a brown cowl neck shirt from Coco & Lily, and a striped wrap sweater from Old Navy.

"The clutch is a Gecko Traders purse made in my home country of Cambodia from old fish bags," she says. "I bought it locally from Delphinium, but I know it still helps those women in Cambodia support their families."

Socially responsible and stylish to boot.

While getting her architecture degree at Auburn, she did a design for Afghan refugees as part as of interior architecture thesis: "I included, with the interior architecture and furniture design, a redesign of the burka which I sewed and modeled. It was made more functional but still seemed avant-garde. I wish I remembered where I put those photo files," she says.

Me, too.
