Up High...

I swear I'm wearing two shoes!!!

I think you’ll be seeing these jeans ALOT on this blog from now on. I wasn’t sure when I first put them on - I was worried about the crotchal area (and since I’ve now put that word in my blog, I’m probably sure to get a few more creeps!) but after swanning around in them for a bit I found they were really comfy and I didn’t have too much to worry about in that area.


I’ve also realised I hardly ever pose with extra things like bags, or the ‘outside’ version of my outfits with jackets etc. So, to make things more interesting I’m going to endeavour to remember to do this more often.

The bag is a lovely vintage one I got last year. The brand is ‘So Obviously Rex’ and I always get remarks on it, especially from older women/people that work in vintage stores asking me “Is that a Rex?” to which I reply “Why, yes it is”. One of my favourite ladies at work used to have one when she was younger and when I went to get my hair cut, the little old lady sitting next to me told me all about hers. Sadly, I’ve used it almost everyday since I got it and one of the handles is holding on by a single thread, which I really must get fixed.

Yesterday I decided to do a mission to all the different thrifty places I’d never visited before and I’m so glad I did. My favorite find of all was a pair of $6 soft vintage leather gloves that are beautiful and which I’ll show you soon. I also found some lovely cups with cherry blossoms on them for all of $2 and a heap of fabric. There was one particular shop I wanted to spend more time in, but the little old man was just closing up, so I’ll have to visit that one again soon.

I’ve been a naughty blogette and haven’t replied to comments in over three posts now!! Terrible…I promise to change my ways soon, I’ve been sewing all day today though and am planning on going back, so I hope to catch up tomorrow!

PS) In those comments I haven’t answered, I’ve had a few questions (which I’ve not answered, sorry!!) so this gave me the idea to do a questions and answers post. Is there something you are curious to know about me? Go on and ask! But please keep it clean and I’ll answer them in one long post later on. (This does sound like I’m a little stuck up and like I’m assuming you are even interested!! And I’m not, promise!!).

  7. Those rex bags are cool! I have a black one, sadly it's in kind of poor condition too, but I still love it :) A question for your q&a might be when did you start sewing? I'm about to begin my first sewing project.

  8. Haha, both my feet completely disappeared in the similar jeans I wore the other day! At least one of yours has popped out to say hello.

    Huge bag envy! The one the stupid mugger broke on Saturday was really similar. I miss it. :(

  26. You look adorable! I love the whole outfit. :) I can't think of many good questions, but I suppose I'd like to know what sort of music you listen to and what your favorite books are! Those are always fun.

  27. That little cream top is so lovely. That such a sweet story about the bag - must be so nice to have that experience! Like carrying round a little bit of history round with you, hope it gets fixed alright!

  28. Wow, you are the rare bird who looks stellar in high-waisted pants. They really are fantastic on you!

    I haven't tried sleep teas yet, but thanks for the suggestion. (Benadryl is my poison of choice, but sleep teas a probably a healthier alternative.)

  29. You look great in the jeans, I love them, and the great bag!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Your outfit is fantastic! I love those jeans... I seem to rarely wear them (or rather, I don't take photos of me wearing jeans... haha!). These are perfect though!

    Your vintage finds sound so neat! I've been dying to go antiquing lately. ;)
