Stripes Again

Jumper: Gap
Jeans: ASOS White
Boots: French Connection

These ASOS White jeans came into my wardrobe via eBay. I have a mild obsession with eBay, and now also just lately Etsy, which caters for more handmade and vintage gifts and unusual pieces than eBay in my opinion; I always find lovely unusual items of jewellery and accessories there. But eBay is great for grabbing bargains if you have the patience to search for them. It does take a bit of leg work some times but it can pay off, I belive these jeans cost a shade under £2 when I'd seen them on the ASOS website for around the £50 mark. They weren't very well advertised on the site so when I spotted them, whilst looking for something else (as is always the way!) I knew I would have a punt at them, and it paid off! What I love about them is that the waist is slightly higher, so they don't slither down to leave your ass hanging out (such a classy turn of phrase!) whenever you bend down!
The jumper is part of my work uniform-I am addicted to wearing it and I feel like buying it in the other colourway it comes in (grey and cream stripe) as I know I'll wear it and wear it, I've even been wearing this one outside of work which is the litmus test for uniform; normally as soon as I don't have to wear it, I don't, but this I just can't get enough of!
Hope you all have a smashing weekend! I am off to watch Crocodile Dundee, possibly one of the best films of the 80's-totes adore Sue's outfits throughout it all, especially her "slumming it in the bush" looks! And who wouldn't love Paul Hogan's craggy features!

haha I'm soo glad you wrote this. SERIOUSLY THOUGH. I am so sick of two inch zipper and jeans that barely cover anything. I'm not 14 anymore. I want some damn high waisted mom jeans.
