Spin the Pin - September '15

I've been really loving these Spin the Pin challenges. At first I was a bit hesitant with some of the pins, thinking "aw It's not my style" but now I'm really loving it. I love how it pushes me out of my comfort zone, out of the style I usually stick to. 
Adapting the outfit using my own existing clothing helps integrate my style into the outfit and it's helping me see older items of clothing in a new light; giving me ideas of how else I could wear it and what else I could wear it with. All of a sudden my wardrobe seems so much bigger!


This months spin (Link up Hereto me screamed double denim (in a lighter denim shade) with a feminine touch of lace, fur and/or stripes & heels.
Also note they had no black in their outfits which I tend to overuse anyway as it's an easy neutral for me, so that was a challenge for me.


I actually really liked what I ended up putting together. Yes it is very similar to outfits in the Pin but thats ok because I can see myself wearing it alot. Its more of a feminine look than I usually do which is probably because of the nude wedges but it looks good on me.


I can't stand denim against denim so the denim vest helped achieve that Double denim look without it looking to 90's and very subtly underneath my denim vest is a sheer white vest with bits of lace just to help get another texture in there and to help break up the denim on denim.


I like the striped top I have on. Its not a plain old stripes tee, it has a vertical line down the middle which I imagine would help elongate my torso and help draw the eye up and down making me appear slightly taller. I do, however, think it makes my boobs look big but in reality they are so I really don't mind.


Don't forget to keep an eye out on ICurvy's blog as she has been posting her fave spins on her blog in a spin the pin hall of fame blog post.

  1. Love your spin! That tee is fabulous. I'm not a huge double denim fan either but it was so fun to interpret in our own ways. Great job love x
