As I was on a roll this week with outfits from my vintage splurge, I was determined to debut the last blouse which was as yet unworn. So with buttons changed (white to grey) and a clashing leopard print scarf, I couldn’t decide what bottom half to wear with it – I really wanted to wear my new red boots again but I was still perplexed as to what trousers work with them (apart from leggings – yawn). Whilst trying on different trousers last night, I initially settled for a dull wide-legged black trousers option when I had a revelation: tucking them into my boots would look so much better (why hide fabulous boots), but they’d never stay in there unless they were gathered at the hem like harem pants. One nervously hopeful visit to my sewing box later unearthed a pack of thin elastic – I threaded it through the hems and tied the ends together and ta-daa, one pair of instant harem pants!
So a naff old lady’s blouse from ebay and black trousers with a bit of elastic added to them can work miracles… I. LOVE. THIS. LOOK. I think it might be my favourite yet.
