Thanks, Alexander Wang, you genius

I was checking the Alexander Wang site, which by the way is on revamp, and i saw these beautiful pictures that really made me crave some boy clothing items. It's interesting to see how nice styled and cute pictures may change your perspectives a little bit, at least for some items (never for crocs. I just had to make that clear).

The Shorts
First i thought of cutting some of my old jeans, but when i tried them on, they were way too tight on my thighs and that was not how i wanted it to look. Then i showed the pictures to my dad and He inmediately noticed these were obviously man jeans. How fool I am :), I guess I'll look for them and then cut them, oh and i have to make sure they fall a little bit (just like they do on the girl in the picture).

The shirt
I'll guess I'll just get one in S, because I'm normally an M size in girls/women clothing and then roll the sleeves. I'm so excited.

Now I have to ask myself: how many times have I came upon both of these items and totally ignored them? I have seen them before, many times on thrift stores, they have thousands of them. Or at least, they used to. Now, I just have to go again, but with a new and different idea of what's cool for me now.

I love the shorts, but they might only be flattering on someone of the super thin variety. But, still a look I'd like to try.

Be sure to report back on how it turns out.

Those shorts are so amazing! And I must agree with you on the thrift shop comment. I see items like these all around but never gave them a second glance.

They look like pieces that are incredibly easy to thrift, too! I really want some men's jeans to turn into high-waist shorts...

sridevi dijo...

This is basically the story of my life.

I want shorts like that and an oversized button down now.

Great idea for the shorts, I've been looking for slouchy denim shorts for ages, I can't believe I didn't think of that!

that is why i love men shirts!! perfect to roll up sleeves with and tie a belt with and perfectly loose enough. ^^

Hanna dijo...

baggy denim jeans and shorts can look so good on a slim figure. It's kind of hard to pull them off so that it doesn't look too manly - you need a feminine sexy top with them, i think, the contrast will look amazing. Lovely post

Fleurette dijo...

Omg, I just discovered a fantastic blog!

Link exchange? :)

Adele dijo...

miss *ann dijo...

aschlee dijo...
