An Understated Affair

July 16, 2008


Tee and Shorts from H&M.


Shirt from H&M. Trousers from Zara.


Excuse the foot-shot. It came about due to my yearning to convey to you the rather nifty but – evidently – subtle pattern.

Shoes from River Island

So I’ve finally got ’round to displaying the fruits of my bargain-hunting labour which – as you may most rightfully believe – are somewhat lacklustre. In any case, I feel somewhat that they are. However, I did approach the bygone sale season with ambition to garner some understated pieces for my – currently – shamefully bare wardrobe . This was done on the cheap, naturally, I am still a student – and an unemployed one at that. Nevertheless, the basics that I have acquired will last me for some time, I reckon, considering none of this has been sourced from the shoddy pound-shop that is Topman.

Excuse the more than shoddy photography but I’m still catching on and Ireland – as you may be aware – isn’t forthcoming with the requisite bright natural light. And the excuse for my most blatant grimace? Irish weather of course.

Oh, and yes, it is all high-street. Don’t shoot me.
