Pinstripe

Thankfifi- Pinstripe-15

Sometimes every piece you have on has a story…

This week whilst visiting my mum and dad’s, I was given a huge bag of clothes tagged with a sticker (written by my 15 year old self) that read ‘Stuff wot you’re not allowed to throw out’.  Well, amidst a mountain of Bon Jovi tees, ah Jon my first true love, and the odd school tie was this Pandas cap.  I don’t remember wearing it back then but it was the only thing ‘wot’ didn’t get thrown out.

The cami is new.  I guess I could tell you pinstripes are the new stripes…

The Hudson jeans came to me in a roundabout kind of way thanks to Selfridges as part of their Denim Lovers campaign.  If you tag your denim related Instagram #DenimLovers you have the chance to feature in the Selfridges window and also to win a pair of jeans – and that’s what happened to me.  Nice one Selfridges.  Get your skates on though, the campaign ends on Saturday.

And so finally to the toes.  I’m minding these babies for a friend, and they’ll be going up on Vestiaire shortly to find a new home, but I couldn’t resist one little outfit before parting ways.

Right, I’m off to find a baseball team.

Pandas cap – vintage (similar here but with a zebra!)
pinstripe cami – Asos (similar here or here)
leeloo jean – Hudson via Selfridges
heel – Gucci (similar here)
ava bracelet – Monica Vinader, rings – Boticca 

denim leash – Ancol, coat – c/o Infindigo

    What a sweet story! 🙂 Sometimes it’s so nice to rediscover loved things. Will you still keep it or throw it away? Anyway – I like your outfit. You look great. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Ha! What a fantastic memory. I love that. It’s so fun that you get a bag of clothes to go through even though I’m guessing some of them might now get thrown away.
