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:
Jacket – Zara // Jeans – Levi 501s // Sneakers – Isabel Marant Bobbys // Top – Zara
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.
