Feeling Blue

Distressed denim, plaid, leopard, chambray, corset lace up shoes.  Every possible trend mashed up into one outfit.

Tragic pigeon holding wads of cash you might say, but wearing it feels very right.

Distressed denim is tricky and can quickly descend into trashy.  Hunting the right pair down may take a bit of patience if you are not nimble with a pair of scissors (alas I am not).

These AG jeans which I snapped up online from Saks Fifth Avenue during the black Friday sales (maybe a size too small, oops!- here’s hoping they streeeetttcchh!) have rips in the right places (rips on knees being important) and just the right amount of distress.

When my jeans arrived, I was so pleased with the shade of blue as I realised that this item would breathe new life into my chambray Acne blazer. (I had recently been wearing this blazer to work, so it was dangerously teetering into the work wardrobe category).  Denim on denim can work!

This Equipment plaid shirt is in high rotation in my wardobe, with leopard being the perfect clashing counterpart.

I completed this outfit with a pair of Willow corset lace ups. Whilst my feet look like they’re in a prison, looks can be deceiving because these shoes with “triple padded sole technology” are ridiculously comfortable.
