OOTD: Leather & Lace

10 January, 2012

Bolero: Vintage via eBay, Blouse: Vintage via Charity Shop, Leather Shorts: Topshop

Just a quick little outfit post of what I wore today, although I must admit I ditched the bolero in favour of my burgundy blazer as it went with the brown shorts a little better. The 80's bolero was bought from eBay for only 99p. Absolute bargain! The swooping fringe/Myhairwenthorriblywrongtoday is a little bit Ellie Goulding inspired, although I'm not a fan of it. I didn't really have the time to do much with my hair this morning unfortunately.

This blouse was only £3 from a charity shop in Winchester (as always!) and I just couldn't leave it behind. The lace detailing is so beautiful and dainty. It even has lace cuffs on the sleeves! It reminds me of what the Amish communities wear (yes, I watch too much TV!), so I dressed it down with a bit of leather. I wanted these shorts forever, but eventually they went into the sale and I managed to get them for £9! Technically this entire outfit (minus the tights) cost me £11! That's student spending right there!
