Oh my goodness, could it be?


One of you left a comment the other day: 'Hey LM, do you ever just wear jeans?'
Well of course I do, but you don't come here for your daily fix of denim do you!
Inspired by this comment I met Porcelain Blonde for tea today and we both wore jeans just to prove that we aren't lady like all the time.
Quite a new experience, going for tea in.....denim. I had to psych myself into it and had the maids in a flurry of excitement with 10 outfit changes but none the less, here it is, what I wore.
It feels so odd!
Oh well, at least you know that I own a pair and on the odd occasion I let them out of the wardrobe. Actually I own 5.
I had to have something to distract myself from how boring I felt, so I figured these boots would do the trick nicley. P.B approved of them while I sat there and eyed off her new Chanel 2.55, my eyes burning so green with envy that I ordered the biggest vanilla slice they had(I'm talking double story here) and scoffed it pronto.
Top: H&M
Cardi: Country Road
Jeans: Valley Girl some time ago so don't get too excited. Most people think they're Paper Denim Cloth or some such designer offering, but sadly they were probably made in one of Imelda's sweatshops.
Boots: Vintage, eBay
Jewellery: Chanel pendant, locket a gift, the rest I made.

Huh! I'll have Yum Yum check with the Invoice Dept but Valley Girl sounds familiar.

Cuuute patootie in denim...take that Anon!

Blogette said...

I never thought I'd come here to see you in jeans! You look fab in them! I'll try and sound as little like Alex Perry as I can, but you make them look so expensive!

Miss Karen said...

You look so good in denim! I would have thought those were expensive designer jeans too - who knew Valley Girl could rival PD&C?

Francis Girard said...

LM does casual and oh so well. Jack of all trades I think. xf

Skye said...

Check out those boots - hot!

I used to have some jeans from VG that people always thought were some fancy pants brand too - I suppose they came from the same factory in China as the expensive ones...

Loving the sexy pirate boots!

Robyn said...

Wooow those boots are the bomb. You look fabulous too, who knew jeans could look so classy :)

Shannon said...

For VG those jeans fit like a dream! Proof that people can wear denim and still be all class.

karahh said...

Loving the chanel pendant!
I've been looking for studs that look like that... I haven't been successful!
You ooze lady like classiness even in jeans!
Lovely as usual Lady M!

A dreamer said...

oh, double whammy! wearing jeans AND they're from valley girl. Big surprise for the readers hay?
Your pirate boots are just too fab!

The Collector said...

Love this look... casual and cool. I recently bought a grey cr cardi too and you have just given me an idea how to wear it (I don't do cardis) - thank you :)

Lisa said...

first- you look stunning
yay for denim.
second- those boots. LOVE.

shizuka said...

the boots were the perfect addition to this outfit!
i love how its over the knee not ordinary length boots.

Sal said...

Oh those BOOTS. I'm trembling with envy.

bronwyn said...

You look so fabulous in these jeans, honestly...I think you should wear them more often...this is a really fab outfit, right up my alley, love it all...the cardi, the boots....great combination of items!

Siljesfashion said...

Thats funny! But you look amazing in jeans as well, good look!

Louise said...

And of course, you still look as fabulous as ever. I think some people miss the point - that when you don denim, it doesn't have to be all sneakers and sweat shirts! I happen to be wearing jeans today for the first time in some 6 months, and I really have been missing out!

esme and the lane way said...

Wow, you do look different, but still lovely!
How good are those boots? I busted out my old over-the-knees on Monday (literally had to dust them off) and they are fun to wear!

Anonymous said...

Ooooh... you look so uncomfortable!! But what you should realise is that you look great. Really flattering to the figure, AND you look about 10 years younger!

enc said...

There is nothing you can't wear well. I love those boots!

Thumbelina said...

Oh I try to avoid wearing jeans at all costs... it just feels like such a foreign concept to me, haha. However, a nice pair of plaid wool, high waist, wide leg trousers would be amazing--if I could find the perfect pair that is. However, you still look so adorable even when you aren't all decked out in ladylike attire.

PorcelainBlonde said...

I hope the maids behaved while you were out darling...one just can't find decent help these days, can one?!

You looked even more elegant and sexy in person than in these gorgeous photos :) I especially loved your use of layered jewellery, it looked stunning.

BTW, if you have bag envy, I have boot envy!

josephine said...
