A Denim Gilet & A Puddy Cat


Yugi decided to plonk himself down right in shot, so I thought it best too take some photos with him...


 Denim Gilet - Urban Outfitters (old)
Top - Urban Outfitters
Disco Pants - H&M
Cut Out Boots - eBay
Coin Necklace - Primark (old)

 Y'know those one or two pieces you have had hanging up in your wardrobe for months, or buried under a mound of clothes in the far corner of a drawer, and they have never been touched?  Because you saw it on a shopping trip, liked it, bought it, but then changed your mind, or didn't know how to wear it.  This is my relationship with my denim gilet... until today.

Too tell you the truth, it belonged to my mama first.  She bought it in New York when we visited for my 18th birthday, a couple years back.  I'm not going to lie, I was hella jealous of it.  She went through that same ordeal, with it just hanging in the far corner of her wardrobe, never being given the chance to be worn.  So she passed it on too me.  And what do ya know, 6 months later I'm finally wearing it!

The detailing on the top is so pretty and intricate, and I love the way it falls over the high waist of the disco pants.  Adding the denim gilet over the top, really toughens it up, even more so because of the frayed sleeves.  I'm most definitely going to be wearing it a hell of a lot more now!

I've also finally worked out how to add the GFC button to my sidebar... took me long enough!

    1. It's so confusing isn't it?! If you go to the layout section and click add gadget, in the popup box click on more gadgets on the left hand side and scroll all the way to the bottom, and it's called followers :) so glad I finally found it!

  28. Love this denim gilet on you and how you've styled it. Those shoes :0 amazing.
    I can totally relate to this post! I always buy things and then never end up wearing them. The thing that always happens to me is I buy, let's say, a pair of jeans and they are perfect except for the length but I'm worried I won't find a pair I like as much so I convince myself I'll get them taken up or something and then I worry that taking them up with ruin them so I put them in a drawer and try and avoid it haha! I'm crazy though. Also, thank you for your lovely comments on my blog recently! It's nice to read a comment and know that the person has actually read your post, you know?

    P.s I'm now following you :)

    Haaappy Summer!

    1. Aw thanks! Ah you should just risk it and get them taken up, it will be fine! I've been doing it with shoes recently as well, like if they don't have a size five and I reeeallllyyyy like them I'll get a size four and hope that they will stretch out!! So bad!! Yeah I love reading comments where you can tell your post has been read, I always read the posts I comment on, just because it's polite as the person has put a lot of effort into it and don't want it to just be used for promotion of other peoples blogs!

  29. Im the same with the majority of my clothes, I buy something - Dont wear it for ages then suddenly a year later I don't take it off! Typical.

    Your hair looks so nice like that :)

  30. I love this look, totally see what you mean about the frayed edges toughening up the looks - really makes it that little bit more individualistic & you pull it off well. Glad I stumbled across your blog on my daily patrolling on blogger, ha. I'm following you & can't wait to see more of your posts

  32. Love the post Alice! I used to have a denim gilet and you wearing it has inspired me to go find it aha. I've always wanted a pair of disco pants but because they're high-waisted it's so difficult to find a pair to fit my waist as well as being skinny! You look amazing in them though. I love the necklace as well, I am slightly lacking in the statement necklace department lately so I'll have to find one like yours because you look great!

  34. You look so cool and i love how your cat just jumped in to the shot, what a cutie. The denim gilet is something i always wanted but i always thought that I could never pull it off... I'm definitely the same when it comes to buying something i love and then leaving it for the next 4 months!

  43. Damn your topknot is perfect-- I can't wait till my hair is long enough to do that. Also your cat!! It looks so soft!

    && I totally feel you on that forgotten pile of clothes-- such a large pile, but every time I try to donate it to the thrift store I find new uses for all of the pieces.

    Best,
