So today I pledged to post at least one new blog post a day for two weeks…Am I crazy? Maybe!…But I do have so many fun things and adventures to share with you that I felt that this was the only way to do it!So here we go, the 2 week challenge begins!
This Autumn was particularly hot and I couldn’t believe my luck when the sun just kept on shining and shining, well into September and then into October…As I am sat here writing this it feels as if the wind and the November rain are about to batter my terrace door open, but still, I can’t help but feel that we had a pretty good run for our money this year in terms of British summers.
Recently I have been loving the high waisted hipster trousers, so I went to Brick Lane to Rokit where they have the most amazing selection of old Levis. I had seen them look good on models and I saw the coolest skater wearing a pair that he had cut off at the bottom with converse. LOVE! My heart was bursting with expectation…The moment was over pretty quickly when I realised that all of the size 38s wouldn’t actually zip up let alone do up… Apparently some nice people have made the current sizes bigger than the vintage ones, but at least I have now fully appreciate the function of low waisted skinny jeans – to save you from having to fit your whole body into your trousers and coming out looking like a stuffed human sausage… So anyway, after 3 visits to the rack I finally found a pair that would do up over my flabby bits and that would close in a place other than right under my arm pits…HURRAY!
So after fashion week I had a few days off to recover when all I wanted to do was go out for walk in the park and around town and enjoy the rays. I decided to do a 90’s throwback and rock a velvet crop top with my hipster Levis and then another look wearing a black crop top with high waisted black jeans and blue denim shirt. Both looks were fun to roam around in- I loved the casual vibe of the denim and the the high waist still made the looks appropriate for the city. With both looks I wore my DollyRed leather Gail black purse with beautiful baby blue stitching. I loved the detail and thought that it went well with my beaded jacket. Their pieces are super elegant but really fun too, the perfect accessories to add a touch of colour and sophistication to any outfit.
