Vintage acid wash denim Shorts – bought in Camden.
Substitutes found at: Ebay Item (they do deliver worldwide) and just the one pair available and at Beyond Retro. They have quite a varied collection of vintage acid wash jeans, skirts and shorts.
This is the first post on my newly established fashion blog and I really hope it gets a good response!
The story behind this picture is quite amusing. I went out in Central London with the aim to take pictures of people I found stylish and suffered from a momentary lapse of confidence when it came to approaching those people.
After a pep talk I received whilst buying a neck strap for my camera (as well as a threat from the most amazing people I know), I saw this girl walk past with a friend. Her outfit captured my attention immediately and I debated on what to do for a minute or two before making up my mind and running after her. I kid you not, I ran.
I’m glad she was the first person I photographed for this blog; 1) because she was incredibly nice and 2) because her adorable Spanish accent helped to calm my nerves.
I especially loved her shirt, which had an almost Neo-Gothic feel to it. That paired with the grungy cut out shoes, 1980’s acid wash shorts and black lipstick I feel created the perfect balance, without any of the individual pieces outshining the others.
Hope you dig this look as much as I did 🙂
