Denim on denim

Hi. I have a good excuse, really, hear me out. My dog ate my homework. Wait, that's not it. I haven't posted anything in 12 days because I seem to have a problem with insomnia these days.  It's affecting my whole schedule, so, I just didn't find the time, or the energy, to take proper care of my blog. 
I hope it's something temporary or else I might have to paint sheep on the ceiling. 
Anyway, I've been waiting to show you this faux fur vest I bought a couple of weeks ago. I've pictured it right from the start with a long sleeved denim shirt and boots. A faux fur vest or coat can be quite elegant and I wanted to style it different than people would normally wear it, so, I went for a urban look. Acid wash denim leggings and a pair of boots did the trick. 
What do you say? Is it better to wear faux fur with elegant outfits, or is it ok to think outside the box and come up with a fun way to wear it?

P.S. I want to thank the lovely Anaivilo from Wonder Fashion for awarding me with the Stylish Blogger Award. 
I have to share 7 things about me with you. 
Looking through my blog archive, I've noticed I did something similar a couple of times. 
So, because of my lack of sleep ( lack of concentration) I will repost 7 fun facts about me.

1) I am left-handed and I have the worst handwriting ever.
2) I've been a vegetarian for 4 years now but even before I gave up eating meat I barely ate any. 

3) My favorite subject in school was History.
4) I am afraid of the dark and I sleep with the light on ever since I was a little kid.
5) I grew up listening to 80's music and my all time favorite band is "The Cure".
6) My hands are always cold, no matter the weather. Does that mean my heart is warm?
7) I would love to live in Japan or South Korea because I love their culture.

I love the idea of the two waistcoats and the denim shirt playing everything down. Love it.

We missed you in the blogosphere >:D<.

Love the layering.. si vesta e fluffy si adorabila! Ambele variante sunt okay (elegant/fun). Imi dau seama ca arata super bine cum te-ai gandit tu sa o combini, cu denim.

Faboulista said...

i sleep with the lights on too only when i'm by myself in the room hahha. and i also usually have cold hands and feet. i always complain that im many similarities between us.

Alice in vintageland said...

I love the denim on denim look and your's is a very cool interpretation. I always enjoy this kind of articles where the wonderful people behind the blogs share things about themselves - I guess that's called being nosy.

herwaisechoice said...

Love the vest, I have a very similar one (Zara, is that where yours is from too?) but we've styled it very differently. That's what I love about blogging.. inspiration everywhere in all different forms! :)


The Hearabouts said...

In legatura cu ultimul comment la post-ul meu.. Eu si Eve am facut niste cursuri la facultate, si aproape reusisem sa invatam hiragana si katakana, plus cuvinte si reguli. Dar e adevarat.. trebuie exersata constant, altfel uiti.

Si as vrea sa fiu asa curajoasa, ca Andy. Ea cam cat de inalta este? Cu tocuri de 13-15 nu o fi cu un cap mai inalta decat oricine din jur? I know I am :P

Ow, chameleons aren't scary. Mancarea lor e mai scary (viermi and stuff.. good thing those are dead :)) ).


Pop Champagne said...

LOVE the fur! and yeah I'm still afraid of the dark and must sleep with the hallway light on and the night light on too!

Samantha Elisabeth said...

Loving the look! And don't worry I've been in and out of the blogosphere forever now. And I agree with the last about me, especially for South Korea!

classiq said...
