Here on Pershing Road in Midtown Kansas City, you'll discover our colorful history in every direction. In front of the historic Union Station, you'll see the Henry Wollman Bloch Fountain, named for the local businessman who co-founded H&R Block. To the left is the Liberty Memorial, honoring those who fought in World War I. General John Pershing, who grew up just 90 miles from here, attended the groundbreaking ceremony in 1921. To the right you'll find the Pershing Building which currently houses businesses such as the Portfolio Kitchen & HomeW . The building was completed in 1918 and by 1922 it was home to WHB, one of Kansas City's first radio stations.

Ordinarily I wouldn’t dedicate an entire post to a pair of secondhand jeans, but these are no ordinary jeans These vintage, high-waisted, wide-legged beauties have some of the most interesting details I’ve come across in a long time!
Woven strips of denim were stitched together to create a lattice fabric for the front (and only) pockets. You guys, what kind of pockets are these anyway? They’re not quite patch or welt 🤷🏼♀️
The legs have flat felled, center seams and the back seams create an arch to meet in the middle like a perfect rainbow.
The previous owner had the legs altered to a dramatic flare, but BLESS that tailor for leaving the fabric in tact. All I had to do was snip out their seams to bring them back to their original wide leg shape. The hem was taken up a bit and worn that way for awhile, but it’s now back at its original length minus about a half inch that I cut off leaving a raw hem. For a minute I thought about cropping them, but it didn’t seem worth losing that beautiful, natural distressing.
Interestingly, I didn’t find any branding on these, but I did find a size tag that reads 9/10. For reference I’m usually a 2 in modern sizing. Just another reminder that size is an arbitrary number that says nothing about your body. Wear clothes that fit and ignore the tag.
I bought these jeans (and coincidentally my shirt too in a different visit) here in Kansas City at @dogoodkc where I always find amazing secondhand treasures and where the funds raised from their sales goes to support Kids TLC and KC Pet Project. If you love ethical fashion, kids, animals, and good people please pay them a visit! Not a sponsored post, just a great shop.
