(Jeans: Topshop via eBay. Shoes: Asos. Top: Asos. Jacket: Asos.)

Looking at the outfit references above, I should really widen my shopping horizons. Yes I am a fan of Asos and Topshop. I find that if I shop retail, I end up buying a heap of shit that I don't wear. Whereas if a product is online, I mull over it for days deciding if I want to buy it. These days, I usually decide that I don't want need the product in question. My wardrobe (and my wallet) thanks me for this system. 

Now, about the red jeans. I wasn't a huge fan of the coloured skinny jean trend at first.... it reminded me of when I was in high school and the pages of Cosmopolitan were ridden with images of celebrities wearing bright, candy coloured bottoms.... yuk. However, I couldn't resist the combination of bright red and nude. I am stoked with how easily these jeans brighten up a dull winter's day.

  1. I love the jeans, how bold and yet friendly they are! Abt shopping online, I hope it doesn't become a popular system [says me from "the other side" of the wallet:))]

  12. I love that you always try to incorporate a little bit of colour Kaye! These pants are a dream...

    Its sad to say but when I was in highschool I owned a pair of Peach Jeans, later I invested in white jeans too... Oh to be young again! I wish i could whip them out now though!
