I did some more jeans dyeing yesterday and am really pleased with the results. My H&M blue skinny jeans were really faded at the knees (as visible on this post – blush). Using Dylon Denim Blue, I’ve transformed them to a dark blue denim colour and the best bit is that the stitching stayed yellow so they don’t look like they’ve been dyed!
Today, I stayed on the red theme from yesterday, wearing a long sleeved top from Dorothy Perkins in a gorgeous bright red, layered with a white vest underneath. I’m a big fan of layering block colours like this. The addition of the white vest just breaks up a very simple look and makes it look more stylish. Shoes are a pair of classic black leather courts from New Look. Every wardrobe should have a pair.
Oh and on the subject of shoes….I was returning my shoes from the previous post as I had decided to go for the nude wedges when what do you know? M&S had a sale on! With lots of shoes on half price….nude wedges were abandoned and I bought three TOTALLY different shoes (it’s an addiction, I admit it). Here’s pair 1:
|Autograph Penny Loafers £25|
Plus points are that these are SUPER comfortable, great neutral colour that I love, patent, tiny block heel, will match everything. What I can’t make up my mind on is, are they a bit old fashioned or Sloane ranger’ish? Is this a bad thing? Now for Pair 2:
|Limited Collection Black Pump £15 (not online)|
Plus points are the fact that I will wear them to death. I’ve a bad knee so really flat pumps are not great for this – the small heel makes them much more comfortable. I love the hairy cow-skin effect, teamed with patent. Just a bit more interesting than your usual pump. And only £15. But are they a bit boring? Finally pair 3 – brace yourself!
|Nude Flatform Wedge Sandals £15|
Plus points, they are sandals (which is what I originally went looking for), nude patent, super comfortable a little bit different and only £15. BUT are they just a step too far down the weird route..will people stare at my feet in bewilderment?
Over to you – last time, I promise…what do you think?
