OOTD - Spikes and chain mail


You'd think all those years of obsessive America's Next Top Model watching would have helped...clearly not...

I got this jumper as an impulse buy from TK Maxx a few months ago a) because it had spike studs which is trend I really wanted to buy into and b) because it was super cheap and a bit weird.

I found a really cute pencil skirt at the same time but could only afford to get one item. Hubby was consulted and he said I should get the jumper. (Never listen to men, I'd have worn the pencil skirt loads by now!)

The jumper is a nice chunky knit wool, and the silver wool on the front has shiny thread woven into it, so it kinda looks a bit like a chain mail effect.

Really wasn't sure what to do with it. I do have a bit of a thing about my arms and much as I try and not really give a shit anymore, some shapes don't sit or look right on my shoulders in my eyes, so I chucked a long sleeve black top underneath.

I'm wearing silver tights with it and the creeper wedges again. The skirt is actually my top - as I couldn't find my black mini when I took the pics - hence why its super short, but I actually think this looks alright! If I could find some plain black shorts that look like this I'd totally wear them.

Do you guys get crazy impulse stuff and then have no idea what to do with it?


  1. I do that ALL the time! I bought 2 bags today, and when I got home, I was like ... "i never use any other bag than my current one, why did I do that?!" then I remembered it was cos theyre cheap!

  2. I love that sweater and the fact you have silver matching tights! I feel like every time I go shopping I pick something that matches nothing else in my wardrobe:p

  3. Those tights are seriously amazing! I always used to buy things because I liked them and I had a wardrobe full of craziness. Now I *try* to coordinate a little bit, but it's always good to have something fun to cheer ourselves up with. xx

  4. You look really sexy in short skirts, and are a very attractive, nice looking girl :D
