#TodayImWearing Armani Jeans

It’s casual Friday again and this can mean only one thing… jeans! I decided to try out my ‘new’ Armani jeans bought from Shelter Scotland on my recent trip to Edinburgh. You can read more on that here .

Whilst wandering aimlessly in the direction of town, I pondered whether I needed some boyfriend style jeans in my life. ES hates baggy jeans with a passion. In fact he finds baggy clothing in general utterly repugnant. “Still”, I thought, “they would look great with a pair of flip flops and a white T-shirt… perhaps I could find a nice designer pair of slouchy slouchy ones.” Still deep in thought regarding my sudden need for a pair of boyfriend jeans, I began considering how much better it would be to get a pair of second hand ones rather than brand new. Aside from the obviously cost difference, a pair of pre-owned jeans have a much thinner and more flexible feel to them.

What luck! No sooner had my undying need for baggy jeans manifested itself, 5 minutes later I ventured into a Shelter charity shop and there they were. The perfect jeans. Armani. Size 12. Long leg (perfect for the oh so casual ‘turn up’). 20 quid. Hallelujah.

These stone washed, worn in jeans were perfect for the casual look I wanted. They may not look that baggy, and as usual my photographs leave much to be desired, but trust me, ES is not a fan. Apart from the Armani logo on my bottom, he’s a fan of that.

As it would be wholly inappropriate to wear sandals in January, even more so to work, I elected for a dashing pair of Dune faux snakeskin court shoes with sky high platform, £28 in the Dune sale when I visited London in July. They were a birthday gift from ES, who is just as much a bargain hunter as I am.

I’m very pleased with my purchase, and the low slung waistline on these is just what I was after. At £20, I would have paid more than that for a new pair from Dorothy Perkins. As it is, I saved £110 on the RRP.
