Electric Blue Faux-Leather Shorts

Just the other day I was thinking I should get some high waisted shorts. When I went to H&M to return some things, I spotted these electric blue ones! If I'm gonna get some high waited shorts, why not go all out and get some faux-leather electric blue ones? I love that they're so different. I wore the shorts to my friend's party this weekend and a couple people started petting them cuz they're really soft!

H&M fur vest; Urban Behaviour sleeveless cardigan (old); F21 tank (old);  Anna Sui tights;
H&M electric blue faux-leather shorts (similar); Qupid 'Revive' boots (here, similar)

For some reason, these shorts fit really small. I'm usually a 4 in H&M bottoms (36" hips), but I had to go up to a size 6 in these. The size 4 was really tight around my bum and nobody likes shorts too tight ;) The size 6 was kinda gapey at the waist, but I fixed that with a simple belt. If you want these shorts, I suggest you size up :) Also, since they're not on the H&M website, the price was $29.95 and they are part of the Divided section. With the $10 coupon it's quite affordable.

I paired it with my faux-fur vest to give the texture some contrast :) The electric yellow vest is actually a sleeveless cardigan that I tucked in. It's long, but I like that it sticks out on the bottom. It reminds me of those jean shorts with the oversized pockets.

Note to self: Don't have Korean BBQ when you wear faux-fur. The smell won't come out for days! XD

  7. ooh! such fun party shorts! I love the pop of yellow from your cardigan too! Also, I'm the other half of the 7% Muse vlog, and I thought I'd let you know that we actually both do watch Sherlock! It's amazing amazing amazing! Benedict Cumberbatch is the freaking best!

  8. That's a great idea that you did with the cardigan - I like how it peeks out too!  Good for you for daring to buy such a unique item.

  20. Thanks! Yah, I was wondering if I should do the fur or not, but what's done is done. Always welcome constructive feedback!

  21. The electric blue really pops. it was  good choice.  The issue about the sizing reminds of a story about something really dumb I did when my wife and I were dating.  I've been meaning to post it--but maybe I keep forgetting because it makes me look so dumb. =)
