Vintage Lace Flares







































These photos may not quite do them justice but the way that these wonderful pants found their way to me is a pretty unbelievable story: a year and a half ago I wandered into a vintage clothing store in Wellington and saw these black lace flared pants and thought 'wow those are pretty cool.' Then I walked out of the store and didn't think much of it. But a while later I decided that actually I really wanted some lace flares just like those ones I had seen. I spent a good year dreaming them up and trying to find the perfect pair but couldn't find what I wanted anywhere... Until about a month ago, when I was in Wellington again visiting friends, I coincidentally wandered into a familiar shop on Cuba Street and sure enough - there they were, the exact same pants, waiting for me!

I love this top aswell, it's made out of pure wool. It's quite bulky but it keeps me warm while still being breathable and looking funky - perfect for these inbetween seasons when the temperature is constantly changing. A friend gave it to me but I simply cannot remember who it was - which is really frustrating, so if it was you then please let me know! My boots were given to me by my best friend Gemma. I was with her when she first found them in an opshop and was extremely jealous but eventually she got sick of them and said I could have them. Yay! Clothes swaps with friends are the best.

These photos were taken by Isaac (on my cellphone) at the Grand Mercure resort in Monarco when I got back from my latest Wellington adventure in August. So they're from a wee while ago but at least I got around to posting! I will do my best to be regular from now on and post more new things, now that I have a steady routine it should be much easier. Hope you enjoyed this, please let me know what you think!
