My mum bought these Converse ages ago, it must be at least a year or so. That's right, my mum's cool enough to wear these babies, before I'm even sure I'm cool enough myself. I haven't even tried them on in this time and mum hasn't worn them many times, resulting in them being gradually shoved towards the back of the understairs closet. I didn't see this as a big deal until recently, when I tried them on for the first time, and actually ended up really liking them. 'Why didn't I try them sooner?' I hear you ask. 'SHUTUP I DUNNO WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, WHY DIDN'T YOU TRY THEM SOONER, HUH? HUH?!' I would reply. Look, I've been naughty and wasted a sexy pair of shoes, but I will spend the next years making up for my sin.
Jumper: TOPSHOP | Pants: RIVER ISLAND | Shoes: CONVERSE
They are a bit out of my comfort zone, I won't lie, and straight after putting them on with my skinny leather pants I had to ask my mum if I looked like a horse rider, 'No' she said, 'More like a boxer', welllll, I'll take that. I decided to keep the rest of the outfit very minimal and understated to avoid going well over the top. This is the only way so far which I've worn them but I'll have to try alternative looks in the future, maybe they'll be good in the summer without tights? Let me know your suggestions.
So you may have noticed in the last week or so my blogging mojo has gone missing. I can't say I'm sorry though, as the reason for this is my life taking a pretty big change last week. I'm going to do a full post on it so I won't go into details, but basically uni had gone to shit - as lots of you will know - and I very luckily got offered a tattoo apprenticeship. Quite a far cry from a job in fashion, but tattooing is actually something I wanted to do four years ago, funny how things work out, huh? I obviously drifted away from that but I've stuck to my drawing ever since and y'know what? I'm bloody loving it there. There's awkward moments and some days where I'm sat on my own for the whole time, drawing. It's also unpaid but I don't care right now, it's all about thinking about the final result, which will hopefully be a career. I can't wait, my social anxiety isn't making it very easy on me but if anything can make me overcome that then a job in tattooing can.
I've got a lot of melons to tattoo until I can do the real thing, but it'll be worth it.
