The fashionistas have been raving about it for a while, I have not been so sure.
Alexa Chung did it, and my, she looked lovely (teeny tiny though):
Incidentally – Traffic People have got one gawgus navy blue clutch with horse detail at the mo, there’s not one single photeee of it on the interweb, I’ll take a sneaky one next time I pass the shop on Kings Road.
There are, apparently, rules to double denim, and these are they:
- The denim must be two different contrasting colours, so as not to appear like the third, and notably most buxom member of Status Quo.
- No belts – this is difficult, I rely on belts to cinch-in places, that need to be cinched…eeek
- Delicate shoes – this I can do pumps, and flops and summery brogues
- Roll-up the sleeves, n’est pas. I haven’t worn an unrolled sleeve for eons, I even roll short sleeved t-shirts.
I sourced the denim shirt from the vintaaaage bit of Urban Outfitters, it is soft and pale, and really quite lush. I teamed it with black/grey skinny jeans (as skinny as my not-skinny legs let them be) which are slightly too turned up (as is the way I insist on wearing them) and to soften-it-up I am wearing a marl grey camisole underneath.
These are the photos I took this morning, classily in the loo at work, you can’t explain to your all male team why you need them to take a photo of you, wearing two colours of denim, it wouldn’t do…I of course look like a div, because people taking photos of themselves, tend to.
