Red shoes, handy hint & boho gone mad!


Here are the new red shoes I promised Sheila of Ephemera. Diesel sneakers for $50 on special!
Have a look at the shoeshine linkup party!




I went a bit mad with the boho look the other day!
Here I'm wearing a second hand men's wool jumper over a long tunic and slip both second hand.


I tried another look, with a silk jacket I bought secondhand...very lots of patterns!


Detail of the silk scarf given to me secondhand. My ring is painted leather and my earrings are recycled crockery!




Here's a picture with my trusty armlets upcycled from a men's jacket.

Handy Hint:
I discovered something...armlets are great for keeping three quarter sleeves from rolling up to your armpits when putting on a jumper. If you don't want to wear armlets that day, just whip them off again and voila, sleeves stay put!



A glimpse of the fantastically amazing argyle sock/tattered stocking/clog combination!


And a demure pose to close.
I will be linking to The Citizen Rosebud's secondhand party. Come and join the fun!


I don't know if you will be inspired or warned by this ensemble. Take from it what you will!

'Til next time, keep creating,
Jazzy Jack

  3. I love your boho looks! What a good idea for the armlets! I always get frustrated when I put on a jacket over 3/4 sleeves. I love 3/4 sleeves but that scrunching issues is a problem. Problem solved! Get armlets.

  7. Wow! I love to hear praise of my home. I'm afraid my decorating is also boho. Grab all the stuff you love and jam it in! I wasn't sure about this outfit when I posted it, but people are very kind. Maybe I will inflict it on the world again :-)
