Had to engage in a spot of Frayed Hem Management last week. After a couple of washes, the DIY cropped kick-flare jeans had got themselves into a bit of a tangle. Time for a trim. Neat and even fraying is fine but no one wants Incredible Hulk Hems. Looking for ways to perk up my vintage coat/old clothes I decided it’s time to show off my swanky, new velvet boots (a Christmas gift from the Blog Widower). Admittedly these are not your everyday item, but they are beautiful and the mid-heel height makes them wearable even if the rain in London doesn’t. My Jil Sander boots are no longer available but there are velvet boots at Office and & Other Stories, plus the last of the velvet reductions at Net-a-Porter and Nike has some neat velvet trainers.
The cashmere sweater is Uniqlo men’s and the silk scarf is from Paul Smith, bought in the sale in a small independent shop in Bath. After my Wardrobe Workout with a style consultant I am determined not to spend, spend, spend, just to whoop up the basics and make the most of what I’ve got.
