Bits And Bobs #22

T-Shirt by Jaspal, Jeans by Cheap Monday, Blazer by Zara, Selfmade Jersey Bowtie Scarf, Shoes by SWEAR

I think it's always challenging to make a dark outfit work on warmer days or summer in general. I'm still grateful, that Zara made such a beautiful blazer affordable, even the lining is perfect for rolled up sleeves. And I somehow wanted to wear my jersey scarf with this outfit. If I had just worn it around my neck it would have been too hot, so I decided to make a big bow tie out of it.

  10. I love how you took enough creativity to convert your scarf into a bow tie instead of using it as a scarf. I agree with you when you say the blazer that Zara made is incredible. I am in love with it and I think I am definitely going to check Zara out. I need to know where you shop for your shoes! I've tried looking everywhere for shoes at least similar but can't find anything!

  20. Hey. I love that blazer. I wish more designers would add great touches like nice linings. My favorite blazer is pinstriped on the inside it just adds a great touch.

    So I know you use a cannon and I have an Oly (for digital and for film) but I was wondering since I guess a hot shoe is a hot shoe (although my film camera being almost 3 times as old as me doesn't have one... Grrr...) if you use a flash what kind of flash do you use? Also what is your favorite kind of film?

  28. If i were to buy a cardigan a few sizes larger for a purposely oversized look, would it throw of the fitting? What do I need to look out for when buying a cardigan? (P.S: If it makes a difference as it might, i'm a girl)

  30. ava: no, it wouldn't. especially if it's long enough so you can pair it up with just a pair of tights and high-heels and maybe some collared shirt underneath? just like done in this editorial: http://fashionbitsandbobs.blogspot.com/2009/07/inspiration-reality-show.html

  31. hi..i just saw you on teen vogue for the GUY of the week and i clicked on your blog
    i really love this outfit..and you have a really intresting style that no guy that i know would try out.
    when someone looks at you with those clothes, glasses, etc. they don't think nerdy they think intelligent and sophisicated..i really like how you pull it off..some people can not do so.
    i applaud you =)

  35. kaya: thank you so much for your long comment. your a-levels are probably similar to our "gymnasium" (which is similar again to american highschool, just on a higher level)?

    trendydwarf: i have found my shoes all in onlineshops!

    nate: i actually respond to every question i get on this blog, although i usually prefer when i get emails, in case the question's got nothing to do with the entry itself. but sometime a comment goes under...
