Vintage Denim

Blouse: Urban Outfitters
DIY vintage shorts: eBay
Platform sandals: H&M
Bag: Urban Outfitters
Ring: Topshop
Necklace: random gift shop?
Earrings: eBay
Nail varnish: 17 - Mint Choc Chip 

So I was finally able to upload this outfit post after having to order a new cable for the camera and then switching to a different computer and THEN coaxing my computer into recognising my usb.. anyway, long story short, the world of technology was conspiring against me when it came to uploading this outfit post!

I'm wearing my vintage shorts I mentioned I few posts back, and I loveeee them! I actually cut them a bit shorter and added a few studs I got off eBay to the top of one of the pockets. It's ridiculously easy to do, I don't why I haven't studded anything before. There's loads of tutorials on Youtube like this one on how to customize denim shorts. I'm especially pleased about these shorts because they are the first thing I've ever won on eBay, since I normally just go for the 'buy it now' option, so I don't have to handle the disappointment of losing the bid (very mature). But I got lucky this time and I swiped these babies for just £8! Get in!

I got the blouse and the bag in the Urban Outfitters sale. The bag was an absolute bargin at £10 but the blouse was a little more expensive. I generally refuse to buy anything from Urban Outfitters unless it's a sale item, because the stuff (although it's lovely) is way over-priced. I think it's a pretty good tactic to wait until the sales to buy the majority of your clothes because not only will you get more for your money, but it stops you from splurging too often.

P.s. If anyone has any requests or suggestions for my next post, please feel free to write them in the comments! :)
