Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post



What I’m Wearing
First let me just say that if someone told me ten years ago that I would be pegging my jeans in my 30′s I would have laughed in their face! …which is why I never {or rarely} balk at fashion trends any more because before you know it, it’s back in style and you’re wearing it again. Now hopefully, the second time around there’s a new twist on it …but I’m seeing a lot of high waisted acid wash jeans lately and omg I think that if I went so far as to wear them again, my husband would divorce me. lol.

* Levi’s light wash low waist almost bell bottom jeans …I actually got these at Urban Outfitters so many years ago I can’t even count but rarely ever wear/wore them because I never found them flattering. I even tried pawning them off on my mom and they didn’t work for her either. So they’ve been sitting in a “to sell on ebay” pile for the last oh, I dunno, 3 years. And here {among many} is one very great outcome of procrastination.
* Vintage Sasson striped blazer
* Vintage lace camisole …seen here and here and here and here
* White blouse with ties …Urban Outfitters …ancient. Actually, I probably bought it when I bought these jeans …lol. LOL.
* Pour la Victoire platforms …seen most recently here
* Vintage silver spoons bracelet …gift from Mrs. Alison
* Louis Vuitton NOE bag
* Random flower I had lying around …pinned to my hair …seen here with afro
* Tom Ford “Yvette” sunglasses …I’m on the hunt for some new silver toned shades …because, like I said the other day, the rad Dries van Noten aviators I bought were too small for my ginormous head and I gave them to my mom.

    The flower with the mens wear look is fabulous. I think I am going to put a flower in my hair. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Did you safety pin your jeans? That’s what I did in the 80s. I pinned them so tight to my calves they’d practically cut off my circulation. I was appalled when skinny jeans started appearing everywhere but, of course, I wear them all the time now. Also? I had Ray Ban Wayfarers when they first came out. If only I’d hung on to those…

    I love your shoes. Are they a relatively recent purchase? I’m in desperate need (ha!) of some nude platforms.

    thank you so much for finding the right fit of jeans to do this with! I have seen others do it, and it has been so…incredibly wrong. This however. is incredibly right. :) Thank you!
