What I Wore: Oxford St. Shopping.

Posted in what i wore by bluewellesleyblue on October 6, 2008

Scarf and sweater both from H&M, tights from Forever 21, boots from Urban Outfitters bought on Ebay, bag design inspired by “Miu Miu,” a gift bought in China.

Have you ever, upon discovering a new trend, proclaimed loudly that you would never buy into it and that you just didn’t get it only to start following it months later? I’ve done that with both skinny jeans and tights as pants under tops a bit too short to be worn as dresses with bare legs. Of course, my skinny jeans are more straight leg than actually skinny because I don’t fancy that tight-pants emo boy band look.

This is a sort of boring outfit, but I’m still very fond of it. When I think about my favorite outfits lately, I’m beginning to realize that most of them are almost exclusively H&M and Forever 21. I’m wondering where to go to inject a bit more affordable variety into my outfits since there don’t seem to be too many TJ Maxx/Marshall’s equivalents here. Uniqlo helps a bit in that regard.

    I feel your pain about finding more unique or stylish items on a budget. You could always try consignment shops or thrift stores, and scour those sales racks at department stores. Nordstroms Rack is great if there’s one around you.

    I absolutely love that outfit. Perfect for fall, and the colors contrast each other very nicely. Well done 🙂

    Cute scarf!

    I went to China two summers ago and bought quite a few bags. Although some of them broke after a one time use, the price still makes them worth it!

    Lovely outfit!
