Story of the blue jumper

 Vintage blue jumper: Cow (local vintage store)
Destroyed denim shorts: River Island
Bow hairband: Singapore
Cameo ring: Primark


So I strolled in to Cow, a local vintage store, hoping to get a pair of vintage Levi's 501 denim shorts. Now, the fact that I have thunder thighs was never apparent to me as I have successfully deluded myself all these years. However, on that fateful day, I was most upset to find that I couldn't fit into the size I thought I was nor the next size up.

Instead of walking out empty handed, I seeked comfort in this large, cosy jumper. I guess by telling myself I can fit into something is a way to nurse my hurt ego. But jokes aside, the jumper's really great! It's such a lovely shade of blue. Also, you can't see it from the pictures, but it has a very subtle glitter effect. It's subtle enough for me to wear to class without looking mental, anyway.

The ring is a recent buy from Primark. It's so pwettyyy! Love the faux pearls, love the diamante, love the cameo, love everything! Initially, I wanted to pair it with a faux pearl necklace (which I got in a vintage fair), but in the end, I decided to go for subtlety with my faux pearl earrings.

  3. Jumper is real cute! And I love the ring! I've always loved those cameo things, even on brooches and necklaces. Especially with the bow and pearls around it - too cute! And from Primark did you say? That is a great bargain girl!
