Look Of The Day: Paige Polka Dot Jeans + Daniel Nude Heeled Trainers! X
Dear Elgin Avenue readers,
A very Happy Friday to you all! Yes. Friday. Woooo!
The weather in London was rather tempestuous today, throwing tantrums of rain and then smiling its way through sporadic sunshine. As such I was forced to don one of my oldest wardrobe staples - the mac. I have not called upon this old friend in quite some time, and yet, like all good friends, it came to my aid when I really needed it.
Thanks maccy babe!

I was lucky enough to get my hands on this pair of Paige jeans a couple of days ago, previously modelled by one Miss Gwen Stefani and Miss Cheryl Cole. Good company! I have to say that when I first held these beauties up I thought there would be no hope of wiggling my bottom in to them (my derrière has a habit of making jeans-buying rather challenging), and yet, without even too much of a hop and a jump, I did! Calling upon my ancient-old training at MiH Jeans (which is another fantastic jeans brand by the by - have a look at my MiH sailor jeans here) I recalled that a percentage of around 2% elastane gives just the right amount of stretch to accommodate a little curve, and keep the shape of the jeans.
Pretty darn great then.
I also broached new personal style territory today when I slipped on these nude Daniel heeled trainers. Having been originally wary of the heeled trainer trend (instinct. sheer instinct.) I fought my gut feeling and headed over - very comfortably - to the dark side. And do you know what? It felt good.
My new guilty pleasure
On a completely different note I really enjoyed wearing a pop of fuchsia lipstick today too - brightened my mood no end.
OH and I can finally tell you what my top-secret internship was (remember how I had to keep it shhhh?!)
Have a little stroll over to Style It Light and read this.
So SO SOO exciting - I can't wait to fill you guys in on all the backstage and styling goss when the show airs.
Oh and just so there is no confusion - I looked after the accessories for the show. The shoes, bags, gems and jewels. No on-camera action for me ; )!!!
So what do you guys think? Polkadot Jeans? Heeled trainers? Any trends you thought you wouldn't dip in to but ended up loving?
Let me know!!
Have a wonderful Friday evening all!
P.S. I will shortly be posting all of the fun and frolics from the ahhhmazing Summer Style event with TheOutnet and fab bloggerista Abi Marvel. Super excited to share with you all! x
