One of my favourite blogs is Wish Wish Wish. I love Carrie’s girly vintage get-up – her photos are always poised to perfection and her posts are interesting and insightful. So when I saw her rocking one of my ultimate fashion faux pas, I was intrigued. A size 12 gal in *whisper* baggy jeans? Merde!
But of course, she looked fabulous. And I was inspired. If Carrie could pull it off, so could I! I took myself off to purchase said items of questionable flattery, and went about creating an outfit. At first glance, I decided they would become house jeans, never to be worn outside the confines of my flat. The walls would protect me from the jeers and laughter that was bound to follow a walk down the street in these babies. But I persevered, and eventually settled on this…
Primark jeans, thrifted shirt and bag, TK Maxx sandals, Funk Rock necklace, vintage belt
Okay, so I’m not entirely convinced I don’t look like MC Hammer in a Levi’s store. I’m wary of the sheer volume of fabric around my hips which, let’s be honest, need no help in that department. But I like it because it’s something a little different, and if you read Tuesday’s post you’ll know I’m all about trying new things. What do you think? Yay or nay? Should I keep on with the more ‘directional’ stuff or go back to what I know – florals and flats? Do tell.
Blogs are a constant source of inspiration for me, so I plan to turn this into a regular feature. Let me know which blogs inspire you and hey, you could even nominate your favourite in the Cosmo Blog Awards! If that favourite was me I’d be ever-so grateful, but it’s your vote, so use it wisely.
