CONVERSATION 16





Top: Forever 21
Necklace: Forever 21
Blazer: H&M
Jeans: Nudie
Shoes: Unknown
Lipstick: MAC Impassioned (review tomorrow!)

I recently got this shirt from Forever 21, and I just think it's so cute. It's a trapeze top, so I find it's best with pants and not skirts or anything of the like. I decided to pair it with my Nudie jeans because I don't wear them very often! Have you heard of Nudie? They're an incredible jean brand, and I spent waaay too much money on them, but they were worth every penny. I believe they're a Swedish brand. The jeans are made out of raw denim, so you're encouraged to wear them basically non-stop for 6 months before washing them. I'm lucky if I wear mine once a week, so I figure it will be a good 4 years before I wash mine. (kidding) They're supposed to wear down in all the right places, until they become like your second skin! Best. Jeans. Ever. I encourage all of you to look up their retailers and go try on a pair! The best part? They're even fair trade.

I got this blazer from H&M ages ago, and I desperately need a new one. It was very poorly made and every time I put it on there is something more that wears out in it. yeesh.

I hope everyone has been having a beautiful weekend! Thanks for reading.

xo,
Raquel

I love the way my blazer from H&M fits, but you're right, they are poorly made. I've had to re sew the hem on the bottom because it's come apart just from hand washing! But I still love it. Those jeans are cute too. I always find that designer jeans really do live up to their price. Except maybe 7 jeans. All the Seven's I've ever had always wore out in the crotch/thigh area and ripped. But I love my Paige jeans! :) <3

you look soo chic!! I love the f21 top, it's super cute! and thanks for the little tidbit on nudie jeans. i've always wondered about them but never bothered to try them because they're so expensive! i'll have to look into them though cause they look amazing on you :) and that's a shame about the H&M blazer, I got a cream one not too long ago and only wore it a couple times to work and it looks trashed already :/
