I have a love hate relationship with these shorts. We all have that piece in our wardrobe which fails in one vital category: either its completely the wrong size, unavoidably see throw etc, and yet we come crawling back due to its luring appearance. I can list so many things wrong with these shorts and yet I’ve been enticed by their perfect aesthetic to wear them to Secret Garden Party and Lovebox festival and now to the beach! I have to be honest I’m vulnerable to anything with eyelash lace. I paid £20 and waited three weeks so it’s natural that I was a little disappointed that they arrived a different colour (not a dark cobalt), size (enormous) and fabric to expected with threads still hanging off the seams. However I really don’t have much to complain about because I’ve worn them a few times and received many compliments, may I add.
These shorts (in a variety of colours) can be found everywhere online- ebay, independent stores, depop etc because like many other items they are bought from Chinese Wholesale, hence the long postage time. This also explains the low quality. They are deliberately designed to have high impact so you wear them for a one off and not long enough to notice the clothing fall apart in your hands. Yes, they’re stunning and I don’t regret buying them but in the future I’ll go direct to the wholesale to purchase so at least I can sacrifice quality at a cheaper price.
These pictures were taken in Biarritz, France and San Sebastian, Spain near where I am currently holidaying. Enjoy.
