I was recently approached by Farmers to see if I could find new winter product within their stores that I would incorporate into my wardrobe. I’m not going to lie, when I first heard Farmers I was skeptical – mostly because I am pretty fussy about clothes and I will be the first to admit that I can be kind of a snob when it comes to brands (which is ridiculous because it is rarely, if ever, that I can afford to purchase designer gears), but it is not every day that I am presented with a challenge like this, and I think it’s an interesting project.
So, I went into my local branch, the Newmarket store. I first beelined to one of the best reasons to shop at Farmers – the Ambra brand stand in the underwear section. For a good 9 months I have been shopping from this section and that is basically because they make this range of fully fashioned lycra crop tops/bras and matching underwear in various styles and colours. Now that I think about it, I think it might actually be a range of teenage training bras (LOL) but who cares because they are DOPE. The bras are super comfortable to wear and one of my friends wears hers as a top so there’s that.
Anyway, I’m kind of getting off track so more on this at a later date.
The point is, I took on the challenge and I went into Farmers with my little gift card and I bought a bunch of stuf that I liked, mixed it with a bunch of stuff that I own already and made some outfits that I would wear in real life. I put these outfits on this great half Dutch, half Maori girl named Saskia from 62 Models. I would’ve put them on myself but she looks a thousand times better in the outfits than I do and I’ve given up personal style blogging. James and I teamed up again and took some pictures and here are the results. I think I did a pretty good job, I would wear all of this:
