Blue Jeans


Last weekend I didn't have much to do so thought I'd pop into a few of the charity shops near me.

I was so pleased I did because I got an awesome new pair of jeans! After saying I'd given up on looking for the perfect pair of vintage high-waisted 'Mom' style jeans and consequently bought the American Apparel ones, I found these babies.

They were just £3.99 and still had the tags on! Despite being 'new', I think they're a good few years old from the style and cut. Being petite length they make good ankle bashers too.

Gold chain- charity shop
Crop top- Forever 21
Belt- charity shop
Shoes- Dr Martens

Sorry if you're bored of seeing the pewter Dr Martens brogues- absolutely rinsing them at the moment; love them!

I'm loving the 90s revival at the moment and am a die hard fan of high-waisted anything so these are just perfect.

Funny story about these jeans. They're pretty tight and first time I tried them on I bent straight down to do another turn up and pulled a muscle in my stomach. It was agony and having read up on it online I convinced myself that I'd torn an abdominal muscle so iced it and was waited on hand and foot all night. In the morning I felt fine! Boyfriend wasn't impressed haha.

Have you uncovered any bargains recently?

  1. Hi there! They were an awesome find and look amazing on! I found a full length faux fur coat last week for £1! Ideal for saving for next winter now xx

    1. That's amazing! I can't help collecting them, my best faux fur coat bargain was a £3 one from a car boot sale- £1 is insane! x

  2. These jeans look awesome and I love how you've styled them.

    What a great find.

    Have a wonderful weekend Hun xoxo

  6. I've recently fallen in love with high waisted jeans. I'd avoided them at all costs for so long, then tried on a pair of 'mum' jeans in H&M the other day and was awestruck! Cannot believe I haven't been wearing them all along. Must say I haven't been in a charity shop for years, although I used to swear by them. Adore the brogues as well!
