Dress to Distress

Every since laying my eyes on the frayed masterpieces of brands like POC and Marques' Almeida, I've been on the look out for some distressed denim pieces to make my own. Since pieces by both the aforementioned brands can be very hard to get your hands on (at least within my price range), I've had to scour the internet to find a cheaper alternative to get my distressed denim fix.

Given that finding jeans that fit is a near impossible task for me, and cut-off shorts are hardly groundbreaking, I went in search of frayed denim tops and dresses and found the perfect thing at Evan-Evina. The dress is a lightweight denim, almost chambray, which means it drapes nicely, is super comfy, and is the perfect playful dress! The edges were only slightly frayed but I tortured them a little more on the hem, and I'm thinking might have a second go to get a really shaggy trim!

Another new purchase along with the dress was my ridiculous but super fab camo platform sandals. These funky babies by YES had been on my wishlist for quite a while and I finally took the plunge and purchased them in a sneaky 24 hour Solestruck sale at 30% off!

I'm loving them so far, which is no surprise given my obsession with flatforms, although they are definitely a strictly flat surfaces only kind of shoe. I learnt that the hard way when I took a very embarrassing tumble down a pebbly hill at uni! eeek! 
(don't worry shoesies, I couldn't stay mad at you)
