Little Spy.



Trench: Burberry
Shirt: Reproduction
Cardigan: Vintage
Chinos: Topman
Socks: Happy Socks
Penny Loafers: Bass
Specs: Oliver Peoples
Ring: Fancy Sexy Me

Although Sweet with a liquorice like sheen and delicious to the touch, these tasseled loafers boar a bitter-sweet aftertaste... Sweet comes in the form of its refined leathery goodness, evolving a debt ridden pauper (a degree in economics brought me nothing but a spiraling overdraft) into somewhat of a prince. As for bitter, well - the realisation that my clumsy man size feet had shrunk two sizes to an above average feminine size 7, left my content self burdened with a sudden wave of grief, frantically trying to persuade a somewhat unresponsive sales assistant that "I am a size 9, I swear - It must be the shoe". Does this also mean that gravity has had its wicked way with my 5ft 11 and a half (the half being very crucial) inch frame? Surely not! Can't be, or could it? Are my elf like feet destined to trot in a pair of Tom Cruise-esque lifts? Or will compensation come in the form of a doctor Seuss hat... Desperate times call for desperate measures.

ooh I love this look, Im going to have to share it with my boyfriend! I love how your socks match your dress shirt too. I have an old trench that will get a similar sleeve treatment soon

i'm planning of using this style of folding and pushing the jacket sleeves way up to reveal the sleeves of the shirt for my creative shot in our yearbook. i still have to test it though. i'm not sure if i can pull it off. you sure did.
