OOTD: American Apparel Gingham Shirt

Gingham Shirt (Unisex) - American Apparel
Denim High Waisted Shorts - Topshop
Faux Arty Ring - eBay for £2! (Thanks VIPXO!)

I am absolutely in love with this shirt, which I spotted in the Liverpool branch of American Apparel months and months ago. I think its really unusual, and is totally different from anything I've ever worn before, but Im enjoying the little injection of colour in my usually monochrome wardrobe. I think there's something really cute about wearing shirts buttoned right up to the top. Sean called it a clown shirt but what do boys know?

The ring was the absolute bargain of the century! I really love the YSL Arty rings, and have been after a good fake for a while now as I most definitely cannot afford the real thing. Victoria over at VIPXO (Im sure you all follow her already cause her blog is gorgeous), does an amazing eBay feature where you can write in and ask her to trawl the auction site for copies of your favourite designer items for a fraction of the price. She tweeted a link to this ring the other day at £1.98 (!!!!) and I just couldnt resist.
NB - The seller obviously realised how insane this price was and has now upped it to £45! DO NOT BUY! You can get them for much much cheaper than that!

Check out Flo muscling in on the photo session, tart.

  4. Aw Flo is so cute! I wish I had a kitty. You look gorgeous and the shirt is awesome! My boyfriend would probably say the same thing - as he does with a lot of the things I wear - he just doesn't get it x

  9. Big, big fan of this outfit and of the shirt! Love all of the colours, I wish I had the chest to wear shirts buttoned all the way up without having some kind of grotesque mass of boob making the buttons pull!
