OUTFIT // The burgundy suit

Wearing vintage burgundy blazer, ZARA blouse, jeans from my boyfriends old closet, Primark flats, ZARA bag, H&M necklace, vintage jewellery, DIY branch bracelets

Ph. by zhe boyfriend

Wore this outfit to a dinner night out with zhe boy last month. I was on the hunt for a burgundy coloured pair of jeans/trousers for a while.. It had to match perfectly with the jacket in order to give that ultimate Suit Illusion. But after months of fruitless searching, I suddenly realized that the perfect jeans had been laying under my bloody nose all the time..

I bought this pair of jeans for zhe boyfriend, back in 2008 when it was still really cool for guys to wear coloured skinny jeans.. Don't get me wrong, I have a weak spot for men in coloured trousers, but this stuff is SO. SKIN. TIGHT. I have come to realize why he never wore it (apart from the fact that he thought it was too gay... Which I don't consider to be a bad thing because my all of my gay friends are really stylish. Anyway, couldn't get that into his mind). I think we were still in that early stage of a relationship in which you can only say 'thank you! It's fantastic, it's great, oh my god it's too sweet of you!!!!' when your girlfriend slash boyfriend gives you a present - although you silently think 'damnit am I supposed to wear that?!' Sounds familiar?

Anyway, back to this particular post. Saw a really cute DIY on making yourself a bracelet out of a few twigs at a Pair and a Spare and decided to give it a try. Lovely idea but I think I did something fundamentally wrong on the gold painting job because the paint coming off within a few hours of wearing.. Ah well, I guess that's my fault. Still need to show you my epically failed paint-an-ugly-purple-chandelier-in-a-minimalistic-white-hue project. Erm, on second thought, not gonna show you haha.

Hardcore food porn to come your way, we had the most delicious dinner evahhrrr. But for now I'll need to get back to studying, much love. ♥
