Outfit Post: Jean Paul Gaultier and Double Denim

Hi everyone! I hope the weekend weather has been kind to you-where I am it's been getting warmer over the weekend and it stayed dry yesterday for the boot sale. It was slim pickings on the bargain front but I did manage to get some All Saints jeans for just £3 which are the perfect darker blue shade for Autumn and Winter. My outfit choice was a mix of double denim and my Jean Paul Gaultier 90s stretchy dress which I wore as a top. This was originally a boot sale find and was only £1 a few years ago:


The Gaultier top is ideal for wearing with blue denim and I wore my yellow neon hoop earrings to go with the yellow in the top. My denim jacket is by Gap and was a charity shop find earlier this year for around £4.99:


I also wore my trusty grey skinny jeans from River Island which are one of my favourite pairs to wear when it's not so hot. Grey jeans for me are an essential in a denim wardrobe, they are a great neutral and work with virtually any other colour for any season too:



I'm currently debating what items I want to invest in for the Autumn/Winter season- a couple more pairs of jeans and some knits definitely feature and of course as soon as I make my thrifty purchases I'll be sure to share them here first!! Look  out for my thrifted All Saints jeans in an upcoming outfit post on LiveToLoveDenim.com

I'm linking this post to the lovely Patti at NotDeadYetStyle for Visible Monday and the gorgeous Claire-Justine oxox for Creative Monday. Wishing you all a great week ahead too. I know there are some of you that are not even thinking of Autumn purchases but for those of you that are, what is on your style radar for the coming new season?

Hi Sharon, great weekend look you have there! I've bought a couple of pairs of grey jeans in the past but they just haven't been right and I'm bored with blue so will have to try again! Sadly I need to replace my black puffa coat, you were probably around when I bought it, it has lasted 3 winters so I shouldn't moan but I'm always broke at this time of year - grrr xxx

Perfect look, darling Sharon!

Patti said...

You do the double-denim look so well, Sharon, this looks terrific. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!

That is the perfect denim jacket, and it looks like it was made for you

Looking pretty sleek, Sharon! Denim is always great on you. In all the variations ... never dull in your presentation.
For fall, I'm thinking of jackets, and cigarette trousers that work for me. And a specific dress or two! Even during the depths of winter here, it can get warm in the restaurant, so I never count on the third piece to make an outfit work. Layers only work for me if I can peel a couple off and still look like I want to.

Looking good!! I especially love the beautiful metallic sandals. I may have to break my thrift-only rule and get some super flares from Free People. The reviews are amazing and they're supposed to be really comfortable. XXOO

Hi ladies-I really appreciate your kind and lovely comments, thanks so much xxx

This is a great outfit. I'm looking for some cute Fall boots this year, and that'll probably be the only purchase I made for me this go around. :)

Rebecca said...

Hints of cool around here make me anxious to bring out the denim jackets, too! Yours here are great & SO good worn together....

Lisa said...

Love your jean jacket, Sharon. It looks as if it were perfectly tailored to fit you. Nice sandals too.

Veshoevius said...

That's the perfect tee for denim - love the lace print! And Gaultier to boot! Never ceases to amaze me what you find!
