This is not a massively exciting outfit , but it’s pretty representative of what I’ve been wearing recently. These jeans are the levis curve id jeans I got from the vintage shop the other day. I was mainly attracted by them not gaping at the back because of the special curvey cut, but really they are just too big. I can tell they’re meant to be worn on the natural waist, but on me they sit on the hips, so then the crotchy bit is bar too long. They’re also generally too big and all that bunching round the knees ain’t pretty. However: they are so comfortable! Out of all the jeans I own, they are by far the softest, I like the roominess for movement and the fabric isn’t too thick either. And all that means that I actually don’t care that they are totally unflattering.
Anyway, the reason I photographed this outfit is the blouse. It was part of all the stuff I got off my uncles mum (also this sixties dress and this fifties dress). I’m pretty sketchy on the details now and need to check this with her, but I seem to remember that this was part of a ‘modern dirndl’. It comes with a matching skirt which isn’t too ruffly either. I think wearing both together might feel too costumey, but I love the blouse with jeans, and I even got a couple of compliments on it at work.
