I’ve finally got around to taking photos for a fashion post, so that’s what I’ve got for you today. It’s been a hot minute since my last outfit/fashion post, but I’m really excited about these pieces and I’m actually super into these two outfits I put together. Also, as a bit of a side note, I cut half of my hair off. I’ve had long hair for years and years, and I’ve been thinking about chopping it off for a while, but I was feeling impulsive last sunday and I just did it myself. I cut my own fringe last year, but I’d never cut the lengths of my hair before which had been my main reason for not doing it earlier, but I just got sick of waiting to get myself to a hairdressers. I’m honestly so happy I finally did it though, I think I needed a bit of a change, and I love it.
I’m also not too sure what’s been happening with my camera, I think it’s probably mostly just the fact it’s pretty old and worn out, but a lot of the photos I’ve been taking on it are turning out a bit strange. The photos in this post were taken at night, but the room was completely lit at the flash was on, so I’m not quite sure why they’ve come out so dimly lit, but I actually really like the cosy feel of them so I’m not too bothered.
Vinyl is really on trend right now, and I am obsessed with it. It’s been around for a little while, but it’s so accessible now and there are so many different options to choose from depending on what you’re after. Personally, I think my favourite way to wear vinyl, and in my opinion the easiest way, is with a jacket. In terms of clothing, I think jackets are really easy to experiment with if you’re wanting to try something new.
I found this jacket at TK Maxx, and it’s by a brand I’ve never heard of before. Usually when I find stuff I love at TK Maxx, it’s by brands that I have no clue at all about. I’m really not bothered by that though, because what I find there is so cheap. This jacket is a little bit of a statement for some people, but I think it’s so cute. I love the colour, and I think that it works really nicely with the vinyl. A coloured jacket or coat of some sort I think is a necessity in anyone’s closet, and red seems to be such an easy colour to put with pretty much anything. Here I just chucked it on over the top of an all black outfit. The knit top is cropped with a ring pull detail I’m obsessed with, and my pants have a pinstripe going through them, which adds a bit more depth.

This next jacket is my new favourite thing. I’ve only had it in my possession for about a week and I’ve already worn it everyday and had a bunch of compliments on it. I bought it because even though I own a lot of jackets, I felt like I didn’t have a super duper warm jacket that I could just throw on with anything and it would look good and keep me warm.
It’s from ASOS’s own brand, and I bought it on sale for $100. I’ve been after a jacket in this style for a while, but I felt like so many of them just looked exactly the same, and also that so many people were wearing them. This one really drew me in because it just looks different to majority of the other ones out there. Plus it is so warm, like incredibly warm. Unlike so many jackets I’ve seen in the past, the borg lining goes through the entire jacket, not just the parts which can be seen when it’s on.
The rest of this outfit is nothing new, the shirt I’ve mentioned in another blog post and I love putting a cropped knit under a massive jacket. The jeans are vintage versace that my sister found at salvos and then gave to me in exchange for some kfc. Shoes are the same as the last outfit, from Kmart, they’re by no means the best shoes but I really like the way they look, and I think they’re pretty good for the price I paid for them.
