I could not pinpoint if asked, where this urge to go chav has come from. Last week, I went exploring into my mother's ever- growing jewellery box (as I often do) and pulled out some hooped earrings. I have never worn hoops, as I never thought they suited me... but before I knew it, I had them in, was applying rouge to my lips and had started styling my hair into a half-up-half-down 'do'.
As to my attire, I haven't ever really experimented with a more casual look. I'd usually stick to blazers, shirts and black, so I did struggle to find clothes that would go with this whole chav phase. For outfit 1 (which I wore to work), I picked out an oversized berry knit jumper, and tucked it into black, high waited skinny jeans (I live in black jeans), paired with a pair of classic black vans and a black bowler bag. I had big hoops in, with my berry lips and half-up hair do which made me feel as though I was a 90's chav wannabe. I also got so many 'you look so different!' comments that day, it was hard to keep count.
Outfit 2 consisted of a grey Marc Jacobs tee, a black leather jacket, black skinnies and my vans, teamed with red lips, a high hair bun and my chunky gold Vivienne Westwood necklace.
So far, I have definitely enjoyed this game of playing dress up, and stepping out of my comfort zone. So much so, that I cannot wait to see what I will conjure up tomorrow...
