victoria and albert museum & the near perfect fit.

PhotobucketMy mum and I went to the Victoria and Albert Museum today. For a while we wandered around the British Galleries, then ended up at a place neither of us had been to before, the 20th Century rooms. The back 20th Century room was just lovely, with beautiful lights hanging from high ceilings and thousands of old books lined up on bookcases juxtaposing against the modern objects displayed. That's what I adore about the V&A, despite me going so often I still find individual objects and whole rooms which I haven't yet seen.

*H&M jumper, gift *Khaki biker detail skinny jeans, H! by Henry Holland, £10.50 *Boots, Topshop, £60 *Satchel, charity shop, £5.99 Notice anything different about me? You guessed it, I'm wearing jeans! You have all probably noticed that I wear anything but jeans or trousers, as I just can't find them in my darn size, I literally haven't worn a pair outside for two years! I'm rather skinny and lanky so size sixes are too big and short, plus if i find a pair of children's jeans that fit me on the waist and hips then they are obviously way too short. Whist browsing Debenhams on Saturday after buying the most perfect pair of black wedges, I spotted these Khaki Jeans for £21 on sale, so my mum persuaded me to try them on. They fitted me almost perfectly, so I just had to buy them. Debenhams were having buy one get one free promotion on all sale items, so after not being able to find anything I really wanted, I persuaded my mum to also try a pair of the jeans, which she did and they suit her so well! So £10.50 each for a pair of jeans which were originally worth £30, pretty good huh?

  2. Your day looked perfect, everything, I really wish I could go to the V&A a little more often, its just so lovely.
    I have a problem with jeans too, but I find they'll be too long for me, and most kids jeans are bedazzled with horrors like rhinestones and glitter, not a very mature look, tehe, I'll just have to stick to jeggings.

  13. All those old books look just wonderful, and I think you suit jeans perfectly, no one would ever know there not your usual choice of clothing.
    It is always a good thing to have a reliable pair of jeans that fit so well and most imporantantly you feel happy in xx

  17. Hello gorgeous! What perfectly fitting jeans, you did do well.
    Thanks for your comment about my bargain hunting. Living in an untrendy place sure has it's advantages, if I was in London I probably wouldn't stand a chance with my grabbing abilities, far too much competition. xxx

  18. The museum looks amazing! I should definitely visit it sometime, when I go to London (hopefully in the near future). The trousers really suit you, by the way. You really make them work. I love the shoes!

  21. Beautiful shots. It's funny, I was just thinking of you & wondering what happened that day we were maybe going to meet @ the V&A (it got a bit crazy for me and I can't get text messages to my phone til I get a new one) and then, just the moment I thought it, your lovely comment came in! Thank you. I'll check out the Story Deli post - I love that place! My friend Abi (a 'real' i.e. not blog friend) first introduced me to it a few years ago. I think they've since expanded it.

    Hope to see you soon. Oh btw I've taken countless fashion shots in that exact nook. I love those jeans & top on you. xo
