plum crop & velvet ankle grazers

9:30 am

The phrase 'ankle grazers' amuses me greatly.

This little OOTD was what I wore to attend the AX Paris AW14 press day last weekend, see more about that here, and looking back, I've definitely been inspired by the likes of Tilly Jane and Megan Ellaby lately. I actually bought these trousers early in the year in oxfam, but they were painfully tight so I've only worn them the once until now. Luckily my mum is a whizz with a needle and thread and let these out for me, so I could sit down in them without wincing in pain. The awkward length definitely makes them unique, and the fact that they're velvet just makes me love them even more. I think they look great with my new primark shoes, don't they? So masculine. 

The outfit is quite dark overall with the duster coat, but is made slightly better with the plum tones in my new crop top. I did try to do the whole hair tuck thing but as you can see, by the time these photos were taken it had all gone to pot really. But it did work in the morning, my instagram has the proof!
