New/Old Levi's

Wearing - Vintage army jacket, vintage Ralph Lauren brown shirt, Gap t-shirt, Levi's 511s, beige Converse, ASOS wooly hat.
Being on a tight budget is ok really, I seriously do fine. So when I hear of items going that I think could work in my wardrobe I try to snap them up, usually by swapping ect. So when I was offered these Levi's 511s by Johnny from Free/Man via Twitter I jumped at the chance. Being a few years old they have perfectly faded to created their own unique wash, they had just fell out of favour in his wardrobe, so I was there to scoop them up. Check out the cool pattern on the inside of the pockets.

It was a really sunny day across the North West today so these shots took place in Hollie's back garden. Hollie's make up looks pretty ace in the low afternoon sunlight so I took a couple of her too. She took the first few snaps.

In other news I'm making my way down county next week, the plan was to go to London Fashion Week but I'm not too sure on that situation now. I'll be spending 2 days in London but staying over in Brighton to keep the costs down, winner! Who else is going to LFW?

  5. I wish I WAS GOING! Ugh! It's super frustrating that literally every other person I know through blogs will be flipping going and I will be flipping sitting at my laptop going 'why is nobody updating their blog?' and then all the LFW posts will come and i will cry myself into pillow every night for the rest of my life! Haha, on the other note, jeans looking cool, Hollie looking stunning! :)

  6. They're perfect! I've decided that I will only buy jeans in 2nd hand stores because they look much better when aged. Love Hollie's glasses, too. Yeap, I'll be hanging around LFW a bit.

  8. Oh Mat is that your girlfriend Hollie? She's gorgeous! Just a quick reply - your comment came in while I was desperately trying to find an email to reply - if you're coming in Tues please get in touch. If you can, private message me your number so we can text when you're there. My husband btw is obsessed with getting new/old jeans. It's like the bane of his existence at the moment: he just doesn't have a pair he's loving, and he's getting really choosy about it. Men and their jeans huh.

    Was that a one off offer? or is this Johnny from Free/Man giving more pair away? ; )

  13. I've heard of Blackpool. My fiance is a soccer fanatic. The tower looks neat! I regret not leaving London while we were in England.. but I guess that just means I need to come back. There are so many places I've come across that I want to see there.

  15. Hey, brilliant photos of you both! Holly looks gorgeous with red lips & those sunglasses :) The jeans are just the perfect colour & I'm a big fan of converse (on other people though, I find them really uncomfortable!).
