18 and East and DIY Yamamoto



DIY Jacket
H&M shirt
18 and East trousers*
Jeffrey Campbell shoes

These 18 and East cigarette pants with a leather trim are now my go-to trousers for work and for going out. They're really comfy, fit amazingly well (the high waist is especially nice) and look good with just about anything. I'm in love! I've got another 18 and East piece to show off soon, but you can get a sneak peek on their Stylist Suggests page (and read a little interview with myself and some other lovely bloggers.)

My jacket is a DIY. I made it using a Yohji Yamamoto pattern that you can download for free. The fabric isn't the most attractive ever, but it's what I had lying around, and I actually ended up quite liking the kimono-esque feel it creates along with the drapey-ness of the jacket. I don't know if it's particularly clear in the photos, but you can wear the jacket two different ways. I'm wearing it the "lapel" way in the standing pictures, and "upside down" in the sitting picture. I think I might make another one with some more wintery jacket fabric, so if I do I'll try and take some clearer pictures. This one is a teeny bit sloppy.

  1. Impressive! I actually really like the pattern, but then I'm very much into that kind of design, hence the blog name. Also your shoes are incredible! There's no way I could ever walk in them, but they totally rock.
