Dads Denim

This is not really an homage to Fathers Day but I would like to thank my Dad for these old jeans that have served as my favourite pair of denim cut offs over the past couple of years!

This also links in quite nicely with a Fashion Salvage event that I attended at the end of last week. The idea of the event was to create outfits from old discarded clothing and make them into something new. Much more on this amazing and inspiring event in the next blog post but I am definitely waving my Fashion Salvage upcycling flag in todays post.

As I said, this particular pair of denim cut offs we're customised from an old pair of my Dads jeans. They have been slowly falling apart for the past couple of years but this fits in nicely with the current over-ripped jeans trend. Wear yours with tights underneath for the colder days and layer up with oversize shirts and tucked in t-shirts No Debutante style.The tights or leggings look under the denim cut offs is also a good trick for people who like the over ripped denim look but don't want to reveal too much flesh! Go raid your Dad's and boyfriends wardrobes now for old denim pieces of better still go down to your local textiles / clothing recycling centre and bag yourself a pair and customised by you!!

Before I go, let's not ignore my lovely hologram Mary Jane shoes from Topshop. I love these shoes and they are so comfy and look great dressed up and down. The price was very reasonable too which was a bonus!
Well done Topshop!

Oversized Jumpers in Spring

Jumpers are for the whole year not just for the winter! Wear your oversized jumper instead of a summer jacket, it will keep you warmer on those breezier summer days and is super comfy! It's the perfect festival fashion item too, it's oversized, it's grunge, it's the new oversized cardigan! I always take my oversized jumper when I go body boarding, it keeps me warm after I take my wetsuit off and acts as a changing room to remove wet swim wear and then it's a perfect grungy fashion item for hanging out on the beach in the late afternoon! Don't neglect your jumpers this spring / summer! 

Here's a couple ways I have worn mine lately with or without the sunshine, dressed up or down the oversized jumper wins!

Summer In The City

The A-line denim skirt is the perfect summer in the city item for this summer. These A-line denim beauties are everywhere, wear yours with a 70s style floral shirt or a (more contemporary) oversized crop top ,with a tucked in vest top in high summer or No Debutante style with a tucked in t-shirt. (None of this wearing your fitted t-shirt over the waist of the skirt please, this is not a flattering look, damn it show of that waist!!).

Here are a few ways I wear my denim A-line skirts and the summer hasn't even kicked in yet, expect more from these beauties over the next months. No I hadn't realised that I kept wearing my yellow Gang of Four t-shirt, this was a random coincidence! I am also wearing a pair of white jelly shoes in the first outfit which were given to me by a work colleague who didn't want them. I will never turn down a pair of free shoes!! Which is your favourite look??

Kimono Love

No Debutante Loves Kimonos!

With Festival season on the horizon what better way to dress for the occasion than with a boho kimono? This was going to be a single kimono post but I have been wearing them so much, this Kimono obsession could turn out to be a regular feature! The kimono in today's post is from Urban Outfitters, it's black, embroidered, silky and has tassels, it has everything! I love it! Layer your kimono up over vest tops and dresses or over jackets, wear with shorts or jeans, experiment with it, it's such a versatile garment. The kimono is the item to make a statement in this summer, however you wear it. Rock it like a groupie!

Here's a couple of ways I have been wearing it lately, expect more from this kimono very soon!
