Contrasted


Vintage denim contrast stitching vest and skirt (the latter is customised) from eBay, vintage shirt from Etsy, rings from eBay / borrowed from mum, 
boots by Windsor Smith, vintage beret.

Literally the day after I saw this and this photo from Alexander Wang's Spring 2014 collection, I purchased a contrast stitching denim vest and skirt set I had been watching on eBay for about 4 months. I knew this late 90s/early 2000s trend would be making a comeback soon, although I can't say I'm seeing it everywhere yet. Probs should point out though that the skirt is not from the original vest set (whaaat ??!?). The set skirt was a fail - I bought a contrast stitching dress on eBay - had it altered into a skirt - voila! I had a full set that matched (almost) perfectly. It has been a work in progress for like... 6 months, I am not even kidding. Although it's taken me a while to debut it here on my blog. Plus it works great as separates too!

Can you believe this though, not just a photo post but a video too ??! I hope you enjoy my first outfit/look video below:

  3. Love the outfit :) If you don't mind me asking, how much did your Tokyo trip cost roughly? I'm actually planning to go in the next few years and want to know around how much it would be ^^ I'm a Sydney-sider too!

    I'm a big fan of matching sets, yet to find a 90s one this great though. Love you blog! Lally X
