O-M-G. Sometimes I am just so fashion, Anna Wintour should just adopt me. Honestly. I’ve truly outdone myself this week. On two separate occasions I have worn two different denim shirts buttoned all the way up to the top. I know, right? So fashion.
I bet you’re sitting there reading this right now thinking ‘but what did she wear it with’? Ok, I’ll tell you…the first light denim shirt that I buttoned all the way was teamed with a pale pink, pleated skirt and a cropped blazer which (and I’m waiting on my adoption forms being signed now) is just so on trend right now. Spring/Summer ’12 is alllll about those pastels ladies with a little bit of pure girlyness for added effect a la Marc Jacobs at Louis Vuitton. I bought a top last week which is an almost exact replica of the dress Kate Moss wore at the end of that show (you know – the white, laser cut/daisy lace patterned dress with the white feathers for added dramatic effect) except it’s a top rather than a dress and it was about 5,480EUR less that the one it took it’s inspiration from. God love intellectual property rights.
The second denim shirt that I wore today was tucked into black, knee length, half circle skirt which I simply accessorised with a gold hair band. “Oh hi, Mumma Wintour”.
Despite the success of these two outfits, I’m currently fretting about my wardrobe for next week. My work is setting it’s employees a challenge: five days, five outfits, one pair of jeans. This is, as some of you may be aware, in aid of World Water Day – which hits us on Thursday 22nd March – where we are being asked to wear our jeans for five days straight without washing them so that we can appreciate the vast water consumption that our jeans go through during their entire life cycle. Ok, I’ll stop being all corporate on yo’ass now and get back to the matter at hand. What am I going to wear?
I’ve chosen the lucky pair of jeans - a dark wash, tapered leg – and have reorganised my wardrobe so that my top’s all hang neatly beside one another to ensure maximum comparison potential. (Wow, try saying that fast five times in a row). So, while sticking to my new mantra of being prepared for work my weekend looks like this: deciding on my five outfits that will see me go fashionably from 9-5 wearing the same pair of jeans and buying that skirt from Zara that I’ve been hankering after for two weeks now.
Over and out. xx
