Whilst in Glasgow this week, i put all my faith in to the shopping district and went without an outfit for the night. Brave? Stupid? Who knows, but it worked out rather well in the end. I think one of the worst things you can do is go out in search of an outfit that you’ve put together in your head, without actually knowing if it exists. Frustration Central.
I popped into Topshop, Forever 21, H&M and a couple more shops before I stepped foot into Urban Outfitters. Really i should have headed here first, i always find something i never even knew i
I scoured the rails and analysed the mannequins for a good 20 minutes, before picking out a pair of leather look trousers and a white top with elasticated detail on the back. I didn’t like it. So back out i went, and by this time, i was really cutting it fine, as the rest of the group were already out in search of where we would eat dinner. I had to move fast.
Without even trying them on, i picked up a pair of high waisted mom jeans from BDG and a bottle green velvet crop top from Pins and Needles. Imagining that the two together would create a rather great 90s look. I was right.
The jeans actually fit really well, i was a little worried that the sizing would come up too small, but a 29″ waist sits quite nicely on me, any smaller and there would have been serious muffin top issues, any bigger and i think they would have slipped down towards my hips
The top is the perfect length, meeting the jeans at the waist band, and i like the straps, more a halter design that a generic strappy top. And it’s oh so soft and velvety.
I paired the two for the night out with a Pony Haired shoes from Newlook, and my little quilted bag from Choies.
It all worked out rather well in the end, ending our night in Polo Lounge, busting out some moves to some seriously 90’s tunes. Whigfield would be proud, i was even prouder that i managed to remember the moves. Have a little trip down memory lane this Sunday and watch the video…
