a night out















{ Vest: a random boutique // Shorts: DIY // White camisole: Mag // Vest: Espirit // Khakis: Norman's // Platforms: Marc by Marc Jacobs }

The cuffed khaki pants my sister is wearing are actually uniform pants from school ;) I just love the idea of reusing things that usually aren't stylish and making them look fashionable - for instance, old Oxford shoes.

School is mundane, I think physics is just such a bore, and it's even worse that I have it first thing in the morning when I am still sleepy...I really dislike teachers who stand and lecture all period.

Before I go, some thoughts on plaid:
Personally I love plaid, but only when it's done right; sometimes I see people wearing shirts, skirts, pants, bags etc. with prints that have over 5 colors and look incredibly messy - this, I find absolutely hideous. Sometime the color palettes used are hideous and totally uncoordinating too. I prefer the large-squared plaid with a few colors, or the classic lumberjack.
What are your opinions?

Fantastic outfits! I love that white vest - the shape is so unusual. Your sis's outfit is great too - I love the combination of black, khaki and white.

Oooohh.. creative! Maybe I should do that with my old school trousers.. cuff 'em up and add details like buttons and stuff. Thanks for the idea.
