Miami Vice.

MM called me Tubbs this morning and I wasn’t sure if he was referring to Miami Vice or The League of Gentlemen (a reference some US readers won’t appreciate – sorry!).  I am guessing it was the former given my white ensemble today.

This is a case of poor preparation.  I was planning to wear skinny jeans and then remembered I was having a pedicure later so I needed to wear a skirt, shorts or jeans I can roll up.  I went with the jeans – but tried to substitute my distressed white skinnies from H&M for shiny white 501s and it really hasn’t worked – the proportions are all wrong.  Even after a jacket change I’m still not happy. But after faffing around with photos etc…I didn’t have time to start again.  So here I am.  When it warms up later I’ll be taking my jacket off, and adding flip flops after the pedicure – a much better ensemble I think – and at least my feet will be looking good.  I’m trying to distress these 501s slowly with a razor – I keep shaving threads off a couple of patches, hoping that with some washing they will split, but it’s not happening fast enough so I may just have to resort to the sandpaper trick.

With the first Zara jacket:

After changing the jacket (White jersey blazer from Zara – old):

A quick note too – as many of you know I churn my closet often and I’ve been selling gently used items that are all in excellent condition here on eBay.  Given my ‘power seller’ status and 100% rating I’ve decided to try out my own store front here on the blog.  If you click ‘Shop‘ on the menu you will see a couple of items listed.  I’ll be adding more here, instead of eBay, to see how it goes.  Payment is still easy and secure through Paypal.

    It’s funny how white jackets always seem to inspire the Miami Vice reference. The last time I wore a white blazer, the boyfriend at the time muttered something along those lines and quick as a flash it was ebayed. That was about 14 years ago though.

    I think the lower half needs to be skinny jeans to bring the shape in. The blouse is billowy and the jeans are loose. But on another note, can I say the cleavage is looking stupendous ;o)

    WOW colours are superb – I am LOVING that coral top from Zara – I should just buy it instead of dithering!
    I agree with Sue and you probably know it already that skinny jeans would be EPIC but I love and all white look – just love it
