As I told you in one of my previous posts, I think Urban Outfitters has a great selection of vintage called Urban Renewal and not just jeans but shirts, tees, jackets, skirts and shorts as well. I think it’s better to go there and try on their things than ordering them online but it’s sure that online shopping has its benefits too.
Anyways I tried some of their things last week and having this done I managed to make some photos too. Here you have them:
Actually this was my outfit from that day (and in the fitting room of Topshop 🙂 with my light blue Levi’s jeans, white shirt, Vagabond loafers and my studded mini tote. As you can see (somewhat) I cropped the hems of the jeans so now they are frayed and uneven. But I’m still not sure I want them this way as I think this frayed hem thing works better with darker and tougher material. We’ll see.
Now this happened in Urban Outfitters. It’s not an easy task to browse trough the offerings because the hanged jeans keep falling off when you try to check the sizes, and some of the clothes placed high up on the walls, so eventually I asked for help. I described what kind of things and sizes I was interested and they were seeking them for me.
They found for example these almost perfect blue jeans one size smaller than mines and probably I’d have bought them if the pockets hadn’t been cut out (yeah, I know who does that?) and the hems weren’t cropped soooo short. I mean I’m not too tall… so why? Trying he black ones were just pure curiosity. Again they were too short but I didn’t like the fit either. Again, please UO stop cropping the hems of jeans or leave them longer. Thanks.
And then again I tried these shorts because of curiosity as I have already a pair of cut off Levi’s shorts from last year and I’m not sure whether I need an other pair. Hehe. 🙂 But this denim skirt on the other hand! It was perfect and I had NO skirts at all. It’s not easy thing to find skirts for my body shape but I liked these from every aspect. So there was no thinking with this one, it came home with me. 🙂 I cannot wait to wear them when the weather finally gets better. So when will be that? Hmm?
What do you think?
