| What I Wore | Converted Shirt

How was your Saturday? Mine involved breakfast in the sunshine and the rest of my day battling the shopping crowds on Oxford Street. I dislike crowded shopping particularly on warm days yet Hiro is rather old-fashioned and will never buy something that he has not tried on.

And so the battle commenced.

Breakfast at Cafe Oto, Dalston.

I found this lightweight shirt in a charity shop and paid £3.50 for it. There was a slight but unsightly stain on one of the pockets so I decided to carefully remove them and replace them with oversized Liberty print pockets of my own making. I rather like the measure of contradiction that they bring to the diverging stripes. I am now considering changing the buttons to pale blue ones, if I can find the right ones. The rest of my outfit is made up of old trusty things that are comfortable and easy to wear. 


  1. I think I am equally intrigued by your breakfast and your redone shirt. The Liberty pockets, I could tell immediately, are what I can only think of as a Yasumi special and they make the shirt so very, very you. And that breakfast! It looks a little bit like a frittata inside a slice of naan but I could be guessing completely wrong. Even so, I am utterly intrigued and a bit hungry now :)

  2. you just made your very own CDG shirt for £3.50! Well done, looks so good. I like the fit of your trousers too, I'd like some like that.

  3. You look so cool :) I love the top, so relaxed, yet chic!! Stunning doll you are, love your cheekbones :))) xx

  4. i love your outfit! i have red chucks but crushing on your yellow ones. and love love what you did with the pockets. i've been some diys and thought about replacing some pockets i have on shirts with nice prints. perhaps a project for the future!

  5. BEAUTY!!!! Nice shirt too! I could do with that shirt right about now to hide my retched mosquito bites

  6. Nice shirt! Its simple but classy. Its unique but trendy.

  7. I really like that shirt, it looks very comfortable.
