OOTD: Dress Up/Fancy Friday – Venus in Blue Jeans*

Fashionthatpays Dress Up Fancy Friday

I know that technically speaking jeans on a Friday in the office mean “Dress Down Friday”, but for those that know me, jeans are not something I wear generally as I never really feel that comfortable, and therefore, to me this is dressing up!  You will also note that I haven’t just worn jeans and a t-shirt….. As if I would leave it at that!

Jacket – Old (from Evans Seven Range – gives you an idea how old!) Size 24
Ankle Grazer Jeans –Evans (2011/2012) Size 20
Top – Taking Shape (available here at £25.00) Size L (UK22) I LOVE THIS TOP
Scarf – Ebay

I have been very surprised at how much I have really loved wearing this outfit today, I can see it becoming one of my many faves!

As the top is the only item that is currently available to purchase, I can tell you that I was very surprised at, again, how flattering it is, and it shows off my curves.  The quality of the material is, as with all the Taking Shape items I have had the privilege to experience to date, of an extremely high quality, consisting of a thicker than your normal Tee material.  If you like the look of it, check it out because you would not be disappointed!

  2. Very nice! I know what you mean about jeans, I’m worn them a handful of times since I was mid-teen; I can barely find comfy ones either and I’ve done a lot of looking since there are so many gorgeous styles!

    You’ve done a nice job here, I like how you dressed them up and especially the scarf tied as a bow! :-D

    Just to let you know I can’t click on your pic to make it larger so when I saved it, it came out small. If that’s how you intended it that’s ok, just thought I’d let you know. If you make it bigger drop me a line so I can edit the post.

    All the best and viva la Vendredi! :-D
