I know what you’re thinking. Denim, leather and studs… Really? Admittedly, this isn’t one of my most frequently worn ensembles or one in which I feel especially comfortable. But there are only so many Peter Pan collar blouses a girl can wear in one week, plus now and again it’s fun to mix things up. Whenever I venture over to the so-hip-it-hurts streets of East London – which, I’m embarassed to admit, isn’t especially often – I sometimes feel that I should try and go for a slightly edgier look. This isn’t something my wardrobe caters particularly well to – French Sole ballet pumps can’t be dubbed off-beat chic by any stretch of the imagination – so this denim shirt dress, leather jacket, red lippy combo was the best I could come up with when I headed to over Shoreditch on Tuesday night.
Sartorial succes or should I stick to pop-socks and pastels, what do you think?
Love Ella. X
