Outfit Post: Ooh La La

I've been practically living in variations of this outfit for the last few days. Finally, after years of not wearing them, I've found the perfect pair of jeans. They're from Dorothy Perkins and they're the most comfortable things ever. They're the super skinny style (not something I ever thought I'd be wearing a few months ago!) and they're just perfect in every way.

This leather jacket has definitely been one of my most worn items over the past few weeks (the dismal weather may have something to do with that) and I'm pretty much in love with it. The vest was a bargain from Tesco (!) and most of the jewellery are things I picked up in sales too. Sales bring me deep joy.

The stars of the show have to be my new All Saints boots though. Rarely have I fallen so in love with a pair of shoes but I knew I had to have these the moment Queen Michelle posted about the granite pair. Mine are stone and I'm pretty much obsessed with them. I could never have justified the original £165 price tag but they were in the sale. See? Deep joy.

I'm a sucker for studs. An absolute sucker. I've actually got a load of studs lying around that I got off ebay a while ago. I really must find something to do with them.

Jacket & rose ring: Topshop
Boots: All Saints
Cardigan, heart ring, necklace & jeans: Dorothy Perkins
Vest: Tesco

I'm also a massive fan of studs, so the boots are AMAZING in my eyes!

Um... so... I was gonna talk about how awesome your outfit was, but then I saw YOUR BOOTS. Those babies are hot! I'm so super jealous!!

Those boots are fantastic. I can just never justify a trip into all saints to my bank though.
Maybe maybe for the next sale?

You're killing me with boots, leather and jeans. It's still in the 90s here and I can't wait for fall clothing. You look great!

Sara Louise said...

oh i love that bracelet and those boots

Amber Rose said...

You are absolutely gorgeous! The whole ensemble you put together is amazing on you, and since I've got a thing for leather jackets, I'm incredibly envious of that, too! :)

And I know what you mean about the jeans thing-- it seems as though I can never find the right pair. Stores just don't show love to curvy short gals!

AFNM - Thankyou! I'm so in love with them!

heartshapedbruise - I am pretty much obsessed with studs at the moment. I can't go in shops without them catching my eye!

Southerners - Thankyou!

Meg! - If I could marry them I would. Tru fax.

Em - They're the first All Saints purchase I've ever made! I can never afford anything either but I had to make an exception!

Jenn - Thankyou! Although, to be honest, I wish we had some sun so I couldn't wear them!

Sara - The bracelet was so cheap too. I love H&M!

Amber - Aww thankyou! Yes, jeans are difficult to find for us curvy ladies!
