CRINKLE CUT

(Lara Parker ruffle sleeve top, Trademe.co.nz. Anime shorts, Peppermayo. Shoes, Converse. Geneva watch, Ebay.com. Sunglasses, eQuip.)

What I wore to Uni today, featuring a few recent additions to my ever changing wardrobe. These super soft and comfy shorts are definitely a new favourite. The colourful print may seem pretty normal at first, but upon closer inspection, you'll notice there are actually little anime characters all over it! I thought they was super unique and cute (plus they were on sale, so how could I say no to that). This top was found while trawling through the pages and pages of women's wear listings on Trademe (procrastinating study, no doubt) and I instantly fell in love with all the little details; the ruffle sleeves, the crinkle fabric and that super adorable pocket. It was a bit on the long side though, so I did some good old DIY and chopped about 5 inches off the hem. The result is this not-quite-cropped length that I love. Finally, my last bargain buy of the month are these pentagonal sunglasses that I scored from eQuip for only $5! They will definitely fulfill my need for geometric eyewear until I can afford these beauties. One day.. ♥
