I promised I would share my orders with you after I went through a slump of being un-inspired. Well, mmmm. Gap. The high waisted jean on me - Simon Cowell eat your heart out. Yes, just in case you were wondering, they did go back.
I've always loved a turn up on a trouser (and sleeves, I am forever rolling them up) so thought I'd try a light grey with a large turn up. After looking back at the pictures, they don't actually look as bad as they did in the flesh. They had this acid wash all over them and they were just a little bit too cool for school for me.
Then another too cool for school style, the ripped effect. As these were £24.99 I thought I'd give them a whirl and they were the same 'Straight Cut' as a pair I'd bought earlier in the year and really enjoy wearing. My only concern was my original pair have got very loose, so I ordered two sizes. This was the larger size. They were ok.
However I felt the size down fitted better, although a little tighter, they would perhaps wear better after a few washes and not loosen too much.
I do find it really frustrating that stores have such different prices online. When I went to return the jeans, the ones I wanted to keep were £12.99 in store! Nearly half the price than what they were online. So I returned the lot and bought them back again at the reduced price. That was after I got a talking to by the manager who said it's not normally allowed but would do as a good will gesture. Well I am so stubborn, had they not have done I would have walked away on principle. Anyway, rant over, I got them at the price I wanted to pay!
