Now, here’s a thing. I’ve had such a positive response to my last post that I’ve decided to go the whole hog and do SEVEN DAYS WORTH OF DENIM!!!
I must be mad. I mean, I like denim, but not that much. In fact, that’s something that’s currently being reflected worldwide; sales of jeans by brands such as Levi and Wrangler are absolutely plummeting, and that’s a shame because denim is iconic. Heck, I can remember falling in love with Nick Kamen and being completely enraptured by every single 501 advert that was subsequently broadcast.
So let’s have a play and see what we can do in the virtual world with this most fantastic of fabrics! I think this challenge is going to be a lot of fun, and will give you some cracking ideas on how to style denim pieces lurking in the corners of your inventory.
Let’s begin: Here’s my look for Sunday (today, click on the pictures to see them in extreme close-up) To start I’ve kept it nice and simple. I left my denim top and crystals on that I featured in my last post, but decided to make the look a little more polished. To do that I added the fabulous jacket from THE SECRET STORE that I threw a fit over a few posts back, as well as a gorgeous teal skirt that I picked up as a Fifty Linden Friday bargain, and I really don’t wear nearly as much as I should…
To finish I’m wearing my favourite bunches, a style called ‘Shade’ by MAGIKA. To tie the tones together I’ve opted to keep my gorgeous NAR MATTARU ‘Skye’ skin, and make-up wise I’ve kept the eyeliner but opted for soft shades to coordinate with the colours in my hair and outfit. What do you think? I confess, I think it works quite well! No wonder I look so astonished! Add a satchel, some glasses and flats and you have a sort of schoolgirl chic look..yum!
Would you like to participate in this meme challenge? I’d love to see what you can come up with, so please have a rummage in your inventory and get your denim on!
I suppose I’d better come up with some rules for this challenge, so here we go: You can wear as many denim pieces as you like, my only condition is that there MUST be at least one denim item in your outfit.
Take a picture, tell us what inspired your look and please add a link in the comments so that we can all go and see your work! (A link back to this blog would be mighty appreciated too!)
