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.

Just a quick note to let you all know that, disenchanted with eBay fees, I have opened a store front on Facebook!  Enjoy and I hope you find some great bargains!

Shop my closet!

Okay so I know I am getting a new walk in closet soon but in transferring and consolidating my clothes between various closets it has become apparent that I have too many clothes.  This sounds like a confessional but yes I have many beautiful items that have not seen the light of day for sometime – some hardly worn, some not worn at all.  Terrible hey?  Well maybe not because you may benefit.

I have an eBay store here at poppys_style where I am selling anything from designer jeans to Boden tunics (all items have been personally bought by me).  Everything is in great/mint condition – I will not sell anything that is less than great condition.  All shipping is included and will be sent priority USPS via eBay so that you can track your package and make sure it is on its way to you.

Brands I sell include Boden, J.Crew and Diesel.  Sizes are mainly US 4-8 depending on brand!

If there is anything you have seen me wear that you are desperate to get your hands on then drop me a note to – you never know it may be on my ‘not ready to let it go yet, but soon’ list!

Enjoy! xx
