Blazer & Boots: Zara. Leggings: Black top: American Apparel. Tshirt: Express. Bag: Thrifted (DIY studded). Fedora: Trash and Vaudeville
I could NOT resist these union jack leggings from The original way I intended to wear them hasn’t been finished yet (more to come on that), but I love them just like this with a pair of tall boots and an oversized top.
The boots I got from Zara during their summer 70% off sale. They are lined throughout with fleece so they feel like Uggs (from the inside). The pointy shoulder blazer is Zara too.

ps. Thank you American Apparel for showing me on your website here and here (scroll down to Seen On Bloggers).

    I love the reflection shot, beautiful! You look so good in those leggings. I don’t think they would look good on everyone =) The boots seem like a great find too. I like all the studding you do on purses and bags. You should sell some DIY stuff on etsy!

  32. Karen says:

    Thanks guys. I love that reflection shot too. We took loads of them and they all came out interesting.

    Cassandra – for the Converse I used the pyramid studs. You need an exactor knife (ultra sharp so watch it) and pliars to bend back the prongs.

    Daria – definitely go get the blazer before it’s gone and you regret it. Remember the All Saints??

  33. Eternally Fixated says:

  35. Karen says:

    Frickys – did you order a pair too? cool!!!!!!!

    Flashy Stylista and Eliana – this is one of my fave outfits for sure.

  37. jackets says:

    Nice Blog! Those tights, jackets and leggings are so cute! Something about this look just makes me so happy! Really love your outfits!

  38. tank tops says:

    Before throwing away your old, ill-fitting tank tops, put them to good use in a creative way. Reusing old tank tops to create a new fashion accessory not only saves money on expensive hand-bags, but it also reduces waste, which is good for the environment.
