Red jeans

I bought these jeans couple of weeks ago, after wanting a red pair for a while. Although red jeans are pretty trendy right now, I had a specific red in mind and none of the stores we went into seemed to have it - there was the garish sort of primary red, orangey red, or a darker maroon, but not the red . We looked around Pitt St mall all night, and I'd pretty much given up until Wai Lam spotted this pair in Dotti (of all places). At first I thought they were a bit on the orange side, but WL (art genius) convinced me that it was the lighting (plus, they fit well and were $20 off), so I decided to just buy them. And it turned out they are the perfect red.


I'm hoping they don't fade too much in the wash... I'll probably try handwash them gently.


Look at me, venturing out of my home for my outfit pictures. A couple of people walked by... I proceeded to avoid all eye contact.


Trying to break in these merciless patent leather loafers... I find that most of the time it's the shoes breaking my feet in, instead of the other way around.


I don't know why I look so sad in these pictures, my face was just not cooperating that day (does it ever?).

I'm writing this post while avoiding uni work and checking out two virtual shopping carts. Of course. I love waiting for parcels in the mail - it gives me something to look forward to. Sounds sad, but there's nothing like coming home from a long day of uni and finding new clothes or books... or, if I'm unlucky, a collection card.

  1. I really like this shade of red, although I think I'd love them in a darker red too - more on the burgundy side perhaps. You look so cute here :)

  9. I love your red jeans! I might see if I can find them at a dotti in brisbane :) I couldn't agree more about online shopping. It's terrible, but I feel a little bit sad when I know I'm not expecting a delivery lol. I had to spend a small fortune over the weekend purchasing clothes and shoes for uni. Although it was upsetting to see my money go, I large part of me is very excited now, because I am waiting for two new parcels! xx

  13. I totally like THE color red of your jeans. At first I was like, huh? But I get it, this is the only real red jeans. You make me want to buy a pair of my own. And I'm so very proud of you, making pictures outside your house :p No but really tho, I dig the jeans. And your shoes, even though they break your feet, are so nice!! :)

  18. so good to be back! i've missed your posts x

    i've noticed your liking for stripes, and love that they are so natural to and on you.

    i always find it kinda funny and slightly embarrassing posing in public, and still end up doing it anyways haha!

  19. LOVE the red jeans! And you look great in them. You might try washing them inside out in cold water? That's what I usually do with brightly-colored clothes.

  25. Definitely the perfect shade of red :)

    "Most of the time it's the shoes breaking my feet in, instead of the other way around." This made me laugh out loud - I've been wearing a pair of shoes that I bought yesterday around the house all day and I can definitely say I agree with you. My feet are dying!
