I only wear black jeans. That’s so much a truth that when I once deviated and wore a really old pair of blue boyfriend jeans because everything else was in the wash, a friend said ‘I’ve never seen you wear jeans before!’. Incorrect, my friend. Jeans, yes, but blue jeans? No. Until now! I decided it was the moment to branch out, and my black ASOS Curve Ridleys that I bought last summer were looking a bit faded and baggy, so it was perfect timing. ASOS Ridleys are the jean for me. They’re tight, strong, stretchy and skinny. They do everything I want them to. And this mid-blue was exactly what I was looking for. So I took them for a spin for the first time on Monday, for a day of stomping around London on the bank holiday. They’re just so good as part of this very relaxed (but not boring) outfit. I’m very happy to have made the switch.
When I went to New York in March I planned to repurchase Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Double Dare, which is one of the all-time best colours on me, but they were sold out in every Sephora I visted. I tried Lolita instead, and found I liked it a lot more than I expected to, and I’ve worn it a lot since then! It’s a good neutral that enables me to wear more interesting eye colours, like here, where I wore it with blue liquid eyeliner (alas obscured by my fringe…)
