The other day while Christmas shopping I fell in love with Velvet's foil mesh sweater. It is reminiscent of a white crochet sweater I had in junior high from Express that I used to wear with black leggings and 1460 Doc Martens. I felt so cool in this outfit!
So for this edition of Re-Creation Tuesdays, I've re-created two of my favorite outfits from way, way back in the day:
(Left, fuzzy white sweater, Jenni Kayne, $495; jeans, vintage, sadly sold out on Etsy; shoes, Tretorn, $60; doorknocker earrings, $4.99. Right, foil mesh sweater, Velvet, on sale at Shopbop for $98; winter leggings, American Apparel, $38; boots, Doc Marten, $120; necklace, Bauble Bar, $36).
Did anyone else have these totally ridiculous foldover jeans from Express? I absolutely loved mine! I remember wearing these jazzy pants -- pegged legs, natch -- with a white cropped sweater, Tretorns, and pink Cover Girl lip gloss (I added the doorknocker earrings for effect). Can you imagine rocking this outfit today? My butt would look like a kaiser roll in those pants.
My mesh Express sweater was longer than the Velvet one above, and looked hot with black leggings and my beloved Docs (the Docs came a couple of years later). I actually think these shoes are in my parent's house somewhere... I will have to do a little rummaging. This outfit might not look too bad today if the sweater was long enough, especially paired with a cool Bauble Bar statement necklace.
Not pictured: my enormous poodle perm, oversized red Sally Jesse Raphael-style glasses, braces, and complete social awkwardness.
Have a great week, Knuckles!
