jake the peg-e-eggy-e-eggy-e-eg!

I wore this outfit to work the other day. It's deceptively simple, you see it's all about the details. New(ish) tailored peg leg trouser shape cuffed just so. Visible contrasting socks. Shiny black brogues. I normally hate trousers with a passion! But of course I had to try some peg legs when they first came out last year, and it took me a while to get over the feeling like I had pooper-scoopers on, but sometimes I quite like the way they can look. I just find it takes extra effort to make pants look interesting.

This outfit actually scored me a compliment from a guy at the bus stop. He told me he liked my socks. I thought he was joking, so I told him I was channelling Michael Jackson. He just said 'well, you're pulling it off, you look good'. Well thanks, I said.

ps. Isn't grey marle just the worst colour for sweat patches? It is actually my favourite colour, but seriously, I had to put my cardigan back on for the afternoon to hide them. How embarrassing.


  1. Yes, grey is! I love grey- but sometimes I just don't feel like putting up with it. Esp, if I want to wear it to my college, it's always boiling in there!

    And I love your pegged pants...I once watched a video by Relient K that taught you how to peg your pants. Very funny.

  2. Totally fabulous! I don’t know if you should be talking to strangers at the bus stop though. London is a dangerous place you know. That’s all they talk about on BBCW.
    And I ALWAYS have that problem with grey!

  3. So cute!


  4. But how I love grey marle! In drapes and ruches and ruffles oh my!

    Gorgeous pants :)


  5. I immediately thought "Michael Jackson"!


Aww shucks, not only have you visited my blog, but now you're actually going to write something?
