sheer shirt, leather shorts & a chunky knit cardigan.

Photobucket Photobucket  Cardigan, charity shop, £2 - Shirt, New Look, £11.99 - UO leather shorts, competition win - Bag, car boot sale, free.
Just a little post today, to share with you two of my recent high street purchases. I'm lovin' everything sheer and leather (or faux leather) at the moment, so the shirt and high waisted shorts are the perfect staple pieces for Autumn / Winter - along with my favourite secondhand cardigan! Despite the fact that I'm wearing my usual neutral colours, I adore how the different textures of my outfit work together, I hope I've proved that black (and a touch of brown) doesn't have to be boring! Love, Jazzabelle.

  2. I love mixing brown items with black, too. Such a delight to see the leather trim and collar of the blouse make a wondrous pair with your leather shorts!

  19. The sweater is beautiful; if I could find something like that perhaps in black or a dark blue I would be so happy. I love your style it's very similar to mine. Dark colors are always in my wardrobe I don't own many light colored clothing. Go figure haha

  39. The different textures you use in your outfits is one of the things I always love most about your outfits. Those shorts are lovely, especially when paired with the sheer and knit fabrics.

  77. why are you only posting once a month? thats not how a blogger works.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi Jaz! I'm so sorry to hear you're not feeling great at the minute. I hope whatever it is gets sorted very soon. Please do not feel obliged to post - we love your blog because it's obvious you love putting it together, and would never want you to post if you weren't enjoying it. Just focus on feeling better! As for the rude comments on Formspring - if I was a swearer, I would say some very rude things because you're obviously a beautiful and lovely girl who does not deserve that idiocy! Ok, short novel over. Hope very much you feel better soon xxx
